The writing style was a little difficult...more like a collection of facts with random dialogue thrown in than a biography. Certainly not written like her novel Idellete. But the information about the Edwards was fascinating and worth the read.

I enjoyed the stories and quotes, as it gave me a more well-rounded view of Jonathan and Sarah Edwards. 2 of 5 stars due to poor writing quality and lack of citations and sources. The information presented was fascinating, and the stories/facts presented are familiar, but the lack of support was disappointing - especially since the majority of the information could have been sourced. Perhaps this book wasn't intended to be scholarly in nature, but it would have been a big asset to credibility.

Although this book was not well written and I skim-read large parts of it, I'm really glad I read it as I learned a lot about the Jonathan Edwards family and the legacy they left. The last couple chapters talked a lot about how they dealt with a rapid succession of deaths in the family and it was very convicting and inspiring to see their godly response.
