From Publishers Weekly

This successful follow-up to Wings of Refuge and Eve's Daughters combines a strong spiritual story line with endearing, believable characters during the Great Depression. "How's a scrawny young thing like you, with three little kids to raise, ever going to run a big outfit like Wyatt Orchards?" the widowed Eliza Rose Wyatt is asked. She's desperate to hold on to the only real home she has ever known, but Eliza believes it will take a guardian angel to help her succeed. When the handsome hobo, Gabriel Harper, comes into her life, Eliza at first holds him at arm's length, wondering whether the aptly named mysterious stranger could be the guardian angel she's been waiting for. The strength of this beautifully descriptive book is its characters, from the whimsical, eccentric "Aunt Batty" to the one-eyed dog, "Winky." Austin incorporates subtle allusions to the angel theme throughout the text in everything from a Christmas tree ornament to the birth of a calf. Underlying layers of the story deal with the impact a father has on future generations and the importance of following one's dreams in spite of opposition. Throughout, readers are teased with misconceptions about Gabriel that are resolved in an unexpected manner. The flashbacks to the past can feel somewhat jarring, but Austin's writing is strong enough to take the reader through them with only a few difficulties. If Christian fiction fans haven't discovered Austin before, this appealing book will send them to her backlist, wanting more.

Présentation de l'éditeur

A deep yearning for home had led Eliza to Wyatt Orchards ten years ago. Now widowed with three young children, she faces mounting debts and the realization it is all up to her. But she has no idea how to run an orchard alone. When a stranger appears at her doorstep, Eliza guesses he is no different than the other out-of-luck characters searching for work during the Depression. But the familiarity with which Gabe tends to the farm raises unanswered questions. With a vulnerable heart, she is unwittingly drawn to his gentle ways. But Eliza also fears that Gabe hides a past and motives that could jeopardize all she has fought to attain for herself and her children....This Christy-Award winning novel is now a Hallmark Channel Original Movie!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great book 25 juin 2004
Par lor369 - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book focuses on a widow and her family, while they are struggling through the Great Depression and trying to hold onto
the family orchard. After Eliza is widowed, 2 very important people come into her life. First, there is Aunt Batty, a
seemingly eccentric old woman, who is also very wise and Godly. Then there is Gabe, a "hobo" who she nurses back to health.
I thought this was a very interesting book to read. I loved the characters and how well developed they were. I loved Aunt
Batty and her love story with Walter. She initially came across as eccentric, but ended up to be a very wise, loving woman.
She helped Eliza to realize that her family, although flawed, loved her very much and urged her to forgive them and become
close to God. Gabe was such a wonderful, loving character, as well. It was very easy to hate Frank Wyatt for the way he
abused his family. And I pitied Lydia, who seemed to be such a weak person, for not standing up to Frank when he was abusing
the kids and for other things that happened in the book, which I won't reveal for fear of spoiling the ending. Lynn Austin
also did a good job of not sugar coating the Great Depression.
This was a great story of love, family, forgiveness, and reconciliation. Lynn Austin is a gifted writer.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another "Christie" Winner 22 octobre 2002
Par Gregory Nyman - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book won the North American Historical Fiction prize recently, and it deals with a Depression-era romance which finds its heroine, widow Eliza Wyatt, afraid to trust.
Eliza never loved her husband, it seemed, but he seemed to offer her security and she was faithful in return for this. Her father-in-law never liked her and terrorized the family to no end. Now that he's dead, she is in danger of losing the farm that symbolizes the security she always craved. The story goes on and we discover that through the help of a hobo and her husband's aunt, Eliza learns to trust God and others.
A Truly charming and wonderful book. Highly recommended!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Wonderful Family Story of Reconciliation 19 octobre 2001
Par Jennifer Grant - Publié sur Amazon.com
I absolutely loved this book! This is the second book by Lynn Austin that I have read and she definitely is an author I will buy in the future. Austin adds many twists and turns to her stories (to keep you guessing) and also spreads a message of hope and reconciliation. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a family story and loves the historical slant. Definitely check out Eve's Daughters as well by the same author.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 well-written story 20 juin 2004
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is the first book I've read by Lynn Austin, and I was very pleased with the quality of the writing. From the first page where the narrator explains her childish misconceptions of what it means to "entertain angels" to the conclusion of the novel, each of her characters is drawn with clear, interesting personalities. The religious insights offered by the novel naturally grow from the characters' experiences and never seem contrived or preachy. This was a delightful and uplifting read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 You can't hide forever 8 août 2005
Par R. Dinkins - Publié sur Amazon.com
I loved this book. In fact I have read it three times, and when I get it back (I lent it out) I will read it again. The main woman in this story was hiding/ running from God, her dad, but most of all herself. Eventually it all caught up with her when she found out that she could not make it without the ones who love her. Mixed in with it all is a beautiful love story that any girl/ woman would cry over (and I did several times). I loved this book, and one day when I have little girls, I know that they will love it to.
