Morris was the first Christian fiction writer I read and this the first series. I picked the first in the series (The Homeplace) up in a Christian bookshop and enjoyed it so much that I bought the rest of the series of 4. The story is set around a Christian family living in a simple rural area. It is about the various trials they experience due to death and absence of key members of the family for various reasons. I especially liked the sense of community encapsulated in the series and that everything is linked back to the strong Christian faith of the lead characters. There is also a romantic storyline running throughout which doesn't take centre stage but is another reason to keep reading. I read the series twice over the last 5 years and it has become a favourite. Recommended for anyone who wants to read something wholesome that keeps the attention. ( )

Although I had not read the first two books in this series, I wasn't lost; although it would have been nice to read from the beginning. Anyway, this is the first book I've read from this author and I hope to find more in addition to the fourth book, which I've already ordered. His characters seem real and you want all the best (or worse for the "bad" guys) for them. Although it's not written in the first person and there are scenes without Lanie in them, it is her story and you get glimpses into her diary and "her" poetry (for an actual book of poetry from the same author.-I'd love to find this book.) A lot of theology was spouted through the characters voices and thoughts. The one thing they left out was that Dr. Owen Merritt's encounter with Amelia Wright was similar to that with Joseph and Potipher's wife. Although Amelia wasn't married and a coat wasn't left, I thought someone would realize it. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0310252342, Paperback)

Raising four strong-willed younger siblings after her mother's death and her father's imprisonment, seventeen-year-old Lanie Freeman never knows what new adventure will roll into view---such as her brother's wild idea to turn the family's old truck into a traveling store. The Freeman Rolling Emporium could provide the financial security Lanie and her family so desperately need, or it could tear them apart. Yet it's only a prelude to other changes. Author Brent Hayden's arrival in Fairhope breathes fresh life into Lanie's dream of becoming a writer. And then the hammer descends ... Lanie's father is diagnosed with cancer, and the faith and unity of her family are stretched to the limit. And on top of this shattering news, a crisis is about to strike that will rock the whole town of Fairhope---and shatter Lanie's dreams of love. The Miracle continues the story of a young woman's valiant struggle to uphold her faith, her family, and her dreams during the height of the Great Depression.
