Where do I begin? This book, as each and every one of The Thoene's are, had me feeling unusually emotional. I had goosebumps and tears. I laughed out loud. These authors are so addictive I have bought every series they have written. My husband does not care to read, so I buy the cassette tapes and we listen to them while driving on trips. The characters feel like your own friends. The style of writing is so engrossing that it's hard to get into other books after reading theirs. I find myself sad once I finish the book because I do not want it to end. It's like some friends of mine are gone. Everyone needs to read this series, but read "In My Father's house", before you read this, because it is a continuation of the Shiloh Legacy Series. You won't regret this reading, ENJOY! Megan

Description brings the Depression era to light!

The Thoenes are master writers/historians. Shiloh Autumn brings to life even day-by-day, mundane activities! The plot is very deep, engrossing, and surprising. This book will make you feel heartache, joy, hunger (for food and for the Lord!), and love. I highly recommend this book to anyone who may need to see that their life may not be as bad as others' lives now and throughout history. The characters, events, and era were as brightly described as if you were actually laboring and laughing right along with them! A must read!

Brought back many memories of my visits to Hartford, Ark..

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Shiloh Autumn. I bought it at a bargain counter at Sam's Wholesale. I had heard of the authors and was told they were good. Imagine my surprise when I read the name Hartford, Ark., which is the town I was born in in 1937. Hardford is 4 mile from Shiloh.Although, my family moved to Oklahoma City in 1941, we always went back to Hartford for Christmas and summer vacations.I remember the names of some of the places: Mansfiled, Monroe, Frogtown, James Fork river, Hartford Music Company, etc. My parents never mentioned cottom being raised there, by my grand- fathers and my dad were coalminers.It was inspirational and uplifting to see how the families faced difficulties and reached out to one another, seemingly never losing their faith in God.Yours truly, Mrs. Betty (Driver) Danley OKCP.S. I am curious to know if some events actually happened. Is there anyway I can contact the authors?

It made me cry!

This is the best single book I've read by Bodie Thoene. It is so sad and emotional and yet at the same time so warm and uplifting. It is the story of a family struggling to survive during the Depression, and is very touching. It is a great book! I laughed at many parts, and at other times it made me cry my heart out for Birch and Trudy and their children. I don't cry reading many books, so don't dismiss this review as mushy and emotional- this book is one of the best- I definitely reccommend it!!

Definitely one of four to be re-read over and over!!

I've not read all of Bodie and Brock's books but am working my way there..The Shiloh Legacy has been my very favorite of all!! Shiloh Autumn has been somewhat difficult to locate until now..I'm hoping that means only that book stores are staying sold out!! I have recommended this and all the other series to so very many people and all have raved about them..Keep cranking them out!!
