Overview

Meet the Stuart family: eight children raised in the hills of Arkansas by their godly and determined mother, Marian, who does her best to lead her children to Christ. But as her three oldest, Lylah, Amos, and Owen, each decide to go their own ways, none seem to follow the path Marian has laid out for them.

Set at the turn of the twentieth century, this first of the American Century series tells the story of a time of growth and opportunity. Filled with historical figures such as Theodore Roosevelt and James Randolph Hearst, this fascinating book will draw readers into the exciting events of the time and the lives of the family it follows. As the Stuarts mature, so does a young nation racked with uncertainty and growing pains of its own.

This book was really good. I liked the fact that the author mentioned God in the book a lot. Especially because most of the characters in the story somehow find Jesus in their hearts and look to God for answers. The family is well described and I can picture them in my mind and their life. The book focuses on the three older Stuarts: Amos, Lylah, and Owen. It shows their struggles, moods, and of course the people they meet and marry (except for Lylah). I wish Morris kept writing the series with the Stuart line going up till the 21st century.
