    This is book three of the Wakefield Dynasty by Gilbert Morris The synopsis on the back only actually covers part one of the book the first hundred pages The historical fiction covers the voyage of the Pilgrims and the English Civil War between the Parliamentarians and the Royalists It included historical figures like King Charles, Prince Rupert, John Pym, and Oliver Cromwell Cromwell takes a lead in this story as his history intertwines with the fiction of the Wakefield family.The writing This is book three of the Wakefield Dynasty by Gilbert Morris The synopsis on the back only actually covers part one of the book the first hundred pages The historical fiction covers the voyage of the Pilgrims and the English Civil War between the Parliamentarians and the Royalists It included historical figures like King Charles, Prince Rupert, John Pym, and Oliver Cromwell Cromwell takes a lead in this story as his history intertwines with the fiction of the Wakefield family.The writing continues to be flowery There is a lot of passive verb usage and sometimes it comes off a little pretentious The plot was interesting I like learning about how religion and politics continue to affect and shape the history of England The fictional part of the story was interesting as well The story follows both Christopher Wakefield and his son Gavin Each generation has a different journey to God, which I think is the primary point of these stories The twists were somewhat predictable, especially if you have read the previous two, but it was still enjoyable.There is, again, no profanity There was a lotsexual innuendo in this book compared to the previous ones, but nothing even remotely graphic There were some almost rape scenes or sexual assault scenes, and I wasn t really that impressed with their outcomes And I seemed to notice some sexist remarksin this book One of the major characters remarks that he was blubbering like a woman and that took me completely out of the book for a moment After that, I started to notice just how much the author focused on how attractive everyone was or wasn t and how that affected their station in life Since the focus for half of the book was on the Civil war, there was some violence, but again, nothing really graphic.While this book series since this has been a reread so far has been slightly disappointing, I still recommend it for anyone who would appreciate a light historical fiction with heavy Christian leanings I am still determined to finish the series and hope that it continues to becomecomplex and that I learnabout how England was shaped

    This was an enjoyable read This is the third book in the series and I m noticing recurring themes as the author has perhaps run out of new ideas I also continue to see a few main characters who are too perfect seriously, they ve got to have flaws, but the author doesn t reveal them I also found it humorous how he inserted John Bunyan into the story It was as if he thought, Hmmm, Bunyan was a Christian and lived in this time, so I will include his name His role was minimal and the author This was an enjoyable read This is the third book in the series and I m noticing recurring themes as the author has perhaps run out of new ideas I also continue to see a few main characters who are too perfect seriously, they ve got to have flaws, but the author doesn t reveal them I also found it humorous how he inserted John Bunyan into the story It was as if he thought, Hmmm, Bunyan was a Christian and lived in this time, so I will include his name His role was minimal and the author failed to show the reader anything about the man, his life, character, and accomplishments When I first encountered Bunyan in the story, I eagerly anticipated him playing a significant role and giving the reader a great opportunity to learn from him, but I was soon disappointed At least in the first book, William Tyndale was given a much larger role and snippets of his biography were included throughout All that said, overall, I did enjoy this book and intend to finish the series

    Note this is a re readI m not afraid of what happens after I die it s the getting there that s a bit frighteningOnce again I like how Morris threads fictional characters with real life characters, it s done brilliantly I like the time period, how close we are with some of the main players in England at that time both on the political and spiritual side I enjoyed learningabout Charles the I as the beginnings of House of Stuart in England are usually over shadowed in history by t Note this is a re readI m not afraid of what happens after I die it s the getting there that s a bit frighteningOnce again I like how Morris threads fictional characters with real life characters, it s done brilliantly I like the time period, how close we are with some of the main players in England at that time both on the political and spiritual side I enjoyed learningabout Charles the I as the beginnings of House of Stuart in England are usually over shadowed in history by the House of Tudor I did love the beginning introduction of Gavin to Susanne and Henry A theme that threads through most of these books is the prodigal son, which I find at some points great and at others tiresome I would have liked Charles the I to be fleshed out just a bitin this book, he was almost there but not quite Cromwell rubbed me the wrong way in this book and I just didn t like him An unfortunate common theme that is prevail throughout the majority of these books is that one of the MCs love interest almost always comes from a rich, sinful family Overall Good book, typical christian fiction

    Yes, another sappy Christian historical fiction novel This is the third book in the series, and I have to say I don t think it s as good as the other two before it Some of the events, and even words, seem a bit redundant from the previous two, and I think Morris adds a bit too much writing from famous writers of the setting time period, almost like he s using them to pad his paper Positively, though, the characters have enough unique qualities in them to keep the stories from being too redu Yes, another sappy Christian historical fiction novel This is the third book in the series, and I have to say I don t think it s as good as the other two before it Some of the events, and even words, seem a bit redundant from the previous two, and I think Morris adds a bit too much writing from famous writers of the setting time period, almost like he s using them to pad his paper Positively, though, the characters have enough unique qualities in them to keep the stories from being too redundant AndI m just a sucker for them
