Item description for Homeplace (Singing River #1) by Gilbert Morris...

In the face of tragedy and a world shaken by the Great Depression, Lanie and her younger siblings seek salvation and encouragement in faith, family, and their tight-knit community. By the best-selling author of Edge of Honor. Original. 30,000 first printing.

Publishers Description
Lanie took out her journal and dated it April 12, 1928. She started the habit of writing down everything that happened to her when she was no more than eight years old, and now she had six journals completely full. She thought about the prize at school, almost prayed to win, but somehow she could not. 'God, ' she finally said, 'I'll do my best, and if you'll help me, that's all I ask.' Fourteen-year-old Lanie Belle Freeman of Fairhope, Arkansas, has high hopes for her future. Happy on the five-acre family homeplace, she dreams of going to college and becoming a writer. And with her father launching a new business and her mother expecting the fifth baby, the bright days of an early Southern spring seem to herald expansive new beginnings for the Freeman family. But her mother isn't as strong as she should be, and it's going to take time for the business to pay back the mortgage. When unexpected tragedy strikes, it is left to Lanie to keep the family together and hold on to their home. In a world shaken by the Great Depression, it is faith in God and love in a tightly knit family that will help Lanie and her siblings overcome the odds and create a future that promises the fulfillment of love. The Homeplace offers a warmhearted and inspiring saga of a courageous young woman who holds her family together through the Depression era

Review of "The Homeplace"  May 9, 2010
This was the first of a heart warming series. I highly recommend it to all who like this genre of inspirational books.
Do the Pears straight from the tree bother anyone else?  May 5, 2010
I am just getting started with the book. But the pears -- they bother me. Pears are picked green and then you ripen them. Has the author no expericence with pears? Pears left on the tree to ripen are terrible and woody and not worth stealing or eating. I know this is true for most older cultivars of pears. Bartlett Pears are my favorite to can. You pick/buy the bushel green and let them ripen. Since they do not all get ripe at the same time, you can do a few quarts a day for a while. It seems like such a small fact to get correct. Are we all so far from the trees?
Sweet depression era family in non-stop crisis  Apr 14, 2010
Nice story with engaging characters. Sometimes though I wanted more of a pause in the crises.
nicely developed story  Apr 12, 2010
I liked this book, even though I don't usually read the christian novelists. The characters were well developed, and the story kept me interested. I am ready for the next installment!
really liked this book  Apr 10, 2010
liked the family. liked the story. even enjoyed the christian aspects of it as they fit into the family and their living style rather than just another christian writer writing for pages their testimony and plopping it down in the book whether it fits or not.
