Reviews - What do our customers think?
One of his best!  Nov 28, 2006
I like Gilbert Morris' books, but he is usually pretty predictable and therefore not my favorite author. This book was really interesting, the plot not so predictable, and generally gave me that "warm, fuzzy feeling". My friend felt the same way and was the one who recommended that I read this book. I enjoyed the fact that the first book in this series did not finish Lanie's story and move on to the next person with the next book. That gets a little old and less believable since real life doesn't move that fast. So basically, I can't WAIT to read the next book in this series! I would say that this is one of his best books. I loved it!
good book!  Aug 11, 2006
Very good--- I've read a lot of Gilbert Morris books and this one wasn't so predictable. It had some depth and leaves you with a nice ending that makes you want to read the next one. After reading several other christian novelists i'd have to say Morris is the best.
Long, tedious, and often predictable  Dec 30, 2005
Gilbert Morris's The Homeplace takes place over several years in the lives of the Freeman family and focuses particularly on Lanie Freeman, the eldest child. The Freemans go through a series of crises: their mother dies, their father is arrested for a fight he didn't start, and a bitter businessman continually tries to take their property.

The novel is divided into 32 chapters and five parts, titled "The Venture," "The Accident," "The Miracle," "The Revenge," and "The Woman." Unfortunately, not one of these sections is actually as interesting as the names imply it will be. Despite being set at the start of the Great Depression rather than the height of the pioneer days, Morris's historical fiction reads like watered-down Laura Ingalls Wilder, complete with general store, sibling rivalry, and a grizzled-but-loving Pa.

Morris' greatest strength is also his greatest weakness. His version of Fairhope, Arkansas is a place where things are simple, everyone knows everyone else's name, and practically everybody goes to church. It makes for a nice place to visit briefly, but it's too much of a cliché to want to stay for 327 pages, much less an entire series of books. There are also too many characters running across those pages, of which the heroine is certainly one of the least interesting. Also, giving characters names like Mr. Sixkiller, places names like The Dew Drop Inn, and forming phrases like "the snowy white blanket of snow" is unforgivable. Cliché on top of cliché?

The high points of this book take the form of poems written by Lanie. Unfortunately, while the author excels in this poetry, he often suffers in prose. Whereas Gilbert Morris offers a few good stories about prayer, faith, and miracles, the overall journey is long, tedious, and often predictable. There's a slim chance fans of the genre may enjoy The Homeplace, but general readers won't endure its slow pace and pedantic writing. -- Sean M. Cogan, Christian Book
