Read full description of the books:
Spoiler alert. The end of All God’s Children was a great cliffhanger ending leaving me wanting to know more about what happened to all the remaining characters and plot lines within the book. If you aren’t a fan of knowing what comes next, skip over the author’s notes between All God’s Children and Simple Faith. I think these notes were rather poorly placed in the sequence as it spoiled what the next two books in the trilogy, as they tell-although not in great detail-the plot lines of the subsequent two books in the trilogy. But it was enough that I found myself not necessarily psyched about finishing the trilogy. These novels were previously published as separate works in 2013 and 2014 by the same publisher and here make their entrance on to the market as one anthology. I would highly suggest reading all three in order and not skipping back and forth as the story lines will be far more readable.
These three novels are very well written. The narrative flows with rich detail and the characters are complex. Each character mirrors what I believe are very true to life people during that time period. The language is simple and straightforward and where there could be confusion about the religious beliefs and practices of the cast, the author does a very good job of explaining why they do what they do. I found the descriptions of the Quaker faith and practices sprinkled throughout the books quite interesting. The juxtaposition of a faith grounded in nonviolence and peace in the middle of the world’s greatest war was a topic I haven’t seen tackled in a great deal of WWII fiction. It made for a highly interesting read and left me wanting to know a lot more about the practices of the Friends community.
The most impressive thing about reading all three novels together was how novel three, Safe Haven, tied together all the previous plot lines and characters so seamlessly. I’ll admit, at the end of Simple Faith (Book One) I felt like we started with one cast of characters that quickly went three separate paths and didn’t really come back together again. Boy was I wrong. Safe Haven is a masterful piece that brought all the story lines around to a full conclusion and admittedly, I read it much faster than I read the other two.
Overall, a great series of books that I would highly recommend. Well-developed characters, suspenseful plot lines, and rich descriptions all lend themselves to a satisfying read.
