A Pleasant Surprise September 10, 2012
Just as another reviewer commented, this is not a genre that I would normally choose to read. However, I was pleasantly surprised to get caught up in the lives of the men of this story. It was a treat to read how each of them came to grips with their faith in God and where it led them. There are plenty of books about women and their spiritual journeys on the shelves so a book that gives us a look into the thoughts of men on a journey is a refreshing addition. Thanks Jerry -can't wait for the sequel!
Great book to add to the list... September 9, 2012
Really enjoying this book... It leaves me feeling like I truly am in that time period. The illustrations are subtle enough to capture your imagination without overwhelming it. The story of love and friendship and is a great testament to forgiveness, which we could all use a little of. Can't wait to finish the reading, but you have to sleep sometime right! :)
Great read with awesome illustrations! September 5, 2012
This book was interesting, gripping, and fun to read! The illustrations help you visualize what living in this time must have been like... Follow the main characters as their paths diverge. One of the best historical fiction novels I've read! Not the genre I would usually choose, but so glad I did! Looking forward to reading more from this author.

Prayer of Jabez
Michael loved to teach and he understood the difference between education and indoctrination. He knew that education required the learner to take responsibility for learning and translate information into useable action for life. Indoctrination meant telling the learner what to think and expecting the learner to act accordingly.
Michael also loved for people to be curious and learn just for the sake of enlightenment.
"As Stewart sat by the fire, he reflected back on one of his conversations with Michael. Michael had told him about a Bible character named Jabez. He said the story of Jabez was one of the shortest stories in the Old Testament but carried a huge message. Stewart dug out the Bible Michael had given him. Michael had said, “This is small and handy. Take it with you. I cannot even read it with my glasses any more. I can still read my big book with the large print.”
“Jabez was more honorable than his brothers. His mother named him Jabez, saying, ‘I gave birth to him in pain.’ Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, ‘Oh that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.’ And God granted his request.”
"Stewart thought back over years of Sunday school, church, family and school, how he had tacitly learned that to seek one’s potential was wrong. One should be satisfied with his position in life and not seek self glory. Accepting a station or position in life sounded less like fate and more like ‘fatal’ to Michael and now to Stewart."
