Reviews - What do customers think about Nazareth's Song?
A Fantastic Work of Fiction! Oct 29, 2007
Nazareth's Song is a historical fiction tale with a touch of romance. The novel is set in the depression era. This is the second book of The Millwood Hollow Series with the first being "Fallen Angels". But don't let the series fool you. This book stands on its own merits, as it is well written. It is an easy read with more of an interest to teen girls starting at age 16 to adult. The message is very inspirational. Yes it takes place during the depression in Nazareth, Arkansas but its message is clearly for today. And yes it is a page-turner for a fiction novel but take it slow and grasp the underlying message. In fact this is clearly a novel you may want to read more than once.
The main character is Jeb Nubey the banjo playing, ex-convict turned preacher. Who under the mentoring eye of Reverend Gracie is taught well the studies of the cloth. But even Reverend Gracie's teachings could not prepare Jeb for the things of life. When Reverend Gracie becomes ill and has to leave town, it's up to Jeb to run the church. He has his hands full raising the 3 Welby children, trying to run the church and keeping the family from starving. His choice of second job only adds to his problems and his heart is torn between Fern, the schoolteacher and the advances of Winona the banker's daughter. In the end his only choice is turning to God to lead and guide in all things, and regaining the belief that if he does the right thing all will be right with his world. See how Jeb makes the choices and decisions that untimely lead him to the right path.
I believe reading Nazareth's Song will make you hungry to read the entire series!
Well Done!! Oct 29, 2004
Wow, I enjoyed this installment of the series more than the first one. The writing captivated you and kept you wanting more. I could not put it down and read it in one day. When a book keeps one that captivated, the very least you can give it is 5 stars. I loved the way the story kept you hooked and the characters all were so well written. I am looking forward to the next one in the series. Well done!!!
Great book Jul 28, 2004
In this book, Jeb is raising the 3 kids that were abandoned in Book 1 of this series. After studying under Gracie, he becomes the Church in the Dell's minister. Jeb is really struggling to put food on his table. Jeb is also struggling with Angel and her rebelliousness, probably stemming from her mom being mentally ill and in a hospital. And Jeb is also struggling with being a "delivery boy" for Horace, since Jeb is unknowingly doing some dirty work for Horace and Ace Lumber.
I thought the book portrayed the Great Depression well. Everybody was struggling so much and it appeared that some people really went off the deep end during that time. I thought Jeb was portrayed well. He is struggling with his conscience as he is making his deliveries for Horace. You can also see this as Jeb tries to decide whether to continue raising the Welby kids or if they would be better off with someone else.
I look forward to the next book in this series. I hope we find out more of Angel and if she overcomes her rebelliousness, and what happens with Jeb and Fern. Also, I would be interested in finding out about the Welby's older sibling, Claudia. She was mentioned in book 1, but not in this book.
Heartwarming message mixed with sweet rural humor. Jun 27, 2004
I fell in love with Patrica Hickman's writings after Katrina's Wings. Her characters are believeable, especially Jeb, who battles his own insecurities while tending three castaway children and trying to win the affections of the schoolteacher in the town of Nazareth, Arkansas. I can't wait for the next in the series!
deep inspirational look back at the 1930s Deep South May 28, 2004
During the Depression, criminal Jeb Nubey and his three-abandoned FALLEN ANGELS reached Nazareth, Arkansas where he posed as a preacher and they as his children until they were caught. To his shock Jeb likes the town, adores his "children" and loves schoolteacher Fern Coulter, who he wants to marry. Surprisingly, Jeb enjoys preaching and he is studying to become a minister.
When the highly regarded Reverend Gracie becomes ill, Jeb takes over as Minister of the Church in the Dell. However, faking the role vs. living the post proves quite different even with the encouragement of his loved ones and Reverend Gracie. Jeb wonders if he has the faith to perform the job. Due to a lack of funds he takes a second job, but that adds to his woes with the congregation and worse with his oldest child teenage Angel hanging out with a bad element. He cannot turn to Fern for comfort as she has become aloof towards him, but there is Winona who makes him feel more like Jeb than Job.
At times the poetic language slows down the deep inspirational story line, but fans of a pleasant well-written tale with a message will appreciate this soothing novel. The character driven plot grips readers as Jeb struggles with setbacks with the woman he loves, his adopted family, the townsfolk, and his faith. To succeed in his endeavors he must regain his belief that if he does the right thing all will be right in his world. Simple philosophy that make for a fine look back at the 1930s Deep South at a time when many only had faith to hold onto.
