He had an inner longing to belong to somebody. I can't wait to read about Max Meyer a Wall Street sort of guy, and Jefferson Canfield who was incarcerated for 10 years, Willie Mae and Hock Canfield all who were running from Shiloh to hide something. I've got to find out why Jefferson was incarcerated. If you've never read any Thoene booksI know you'll be glad that you started.

I love that Jefferson is finally after many years rejoined with his parents. Nov 20, Jeni Enjaian rated it liked it Shelves: I may have just finished this book yesterday but I've already forgotten many of the details. For me that means that the book wasn't good or bad enough to make an impression.
It's middlingly better than the first two books in the series because once again the Thoene's narrow the scope of the book. I will say though, the mobster chasing Max and Davey to Shiloh Also, the Thoenes seem to come close so many times to portraying difficulties in the lives of their major "good" character I may have just finished this book yesterday but I've already forgotten many of the details. Also, the Thoenes seem to come close so many times to portraying difficulties in the lives of their major "good" characters that are realistic and don't always end positively.
However, they don't quite make it which for me makes this book and these types of books a little less enjoyable. The difficulties and the resolutions are exaggerated. It's a decent book but definitely nowhere near a masterpiece. Mar 17, Angela rated it really liked it. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I like this book almost as much as the first two in the series but left off one start because of the ending.
After the reading about and being emotionally immersed in the troubles of life toward the end of I sincerely doubt that everything could have ended so perfectly. The conclusion was just a bit too tidy and unrealistic considering the ups and downs of life that had been portrayed throughout the entire series.
Otherwise this was a fantastic book and I would definitely recommend the tril I like this book almost as much as the first two in the series but left off one start because of the ending. Otherwise this was a fantastic book and I would definitely recommend the trilogy to others.
Third in the 'Shiloh legacy' series. This draws together threads from the first two books, although it could probably be read as a stand-alone novel. The story revolves around a large number of situations, gradually interweaving characters' lives, with a low-key Christian theme moving throughout: Satisfying ending; eye-opening from the point of view of US history. Nov 07, Marlo rated it liked it Shelves: My to-read list is a mile long, and I'm currently reading several books for other purposes, so possibly that has affected my thoughts about this book.
I generally appreciate the Thoenes' books for their historical insight and accuracy and for their faith-based encouragement. This book delivers that, but it just didn't hold my attention like others. I confess I skimmed the last third of it just so I could finish and move on. Sep 17, Angie rated it really liked it.
I'd actually rate it 3 and a half. Its a good book, with very interesting, twisted and different stories but the one thing they have in common apart from "Love" is a sort of depressing feel. Each story gave me the same feelings and it wasn't love and usually not sympathy.

Easy to read, but not "too" easy. I loved following the soldiers back to the United States after WWI and how their lives continued to intertwine. May 05, Universitybabe rated it really liked it. From war to crash to depression we have followed them far. From one of the other origional four points of view--a war vet turned financial reporter. I had to keep reading.
