I don't know if this was one of the first books by this author, but the story did not flow well...there were memories put into the prose that made you think it was happening then. The story was fine, and it was a quick read, but it wasn't anything special.

Starting close to where A Place Called Home left off, A Song for Silas tells Luke's brother Silas's story... and his journey to finding the woman God has for him. :)

Amy always looked at Silas as a big brother; but suddenly he's there at her house, twenty-eight to her eighteen years, and something other than friendship blossoms between them. Will she get over her fear in time to embrace God's plan for the two of them?

Again, with family dramas, tender romances, and a bit of suspense, the second bo

Recommends it for: quite, motherless christians
This book is about two fairly quite personalities struggling to do God's will before their own desires. This was once again one of Lori Wick's lost, love, found books. Same themes, but completely different story and method of approaching the end game. I just do not think that I can get enough of her books. I laugh out loud, and giggle quietly, as well as want to cry. Just to struggle with the characters and then rejoice with them is quite the experience.
I enjoyed the change of pace of this book. It is slow and simple and lovely and it soothed me. It maybe felt more 'hallmark movie'-ish but sometimes that is exactly what I'm in the mood for. The part about the robbery did feel very contrived though so I didn't think it added anything to the story. I know she tried to use it as an opportunity for a conversion story but it just didn't feel 'real' to me. Other than that, I enjoyed this one.
It is quite a good book there definitely is room for improvement in this one but Lori has a lovely way of building her characters so you understand them very well and you can relate to them. The fact that this is the second book in the series "A Place Called Home" only makes the bonds between the characters stronger, it doesn't however affect the story if you haven't read the first book. I have however read the first book. Which is also lovely.
While it's the second book in a series -- and I haven't read the first -- I think this will be one of my favorites. I like that they're set in turn of the 20th century Wisconsin, and I adore Amy and Silas (especially their mutual confusion when their feelings change from sibling-like to, um, not). Plus, a man who plays piano is sure to win over any number of hearts.

Recommends it for: Yes
this book Luke has a son. His brother Silas gose had help a family who father Grant fell from a ladder and broke his leg. His daughter Amy neds help. Sombody his robberly homes and barns. Silas falls in love with Amy. But Amy see him as a big brother. But in the end they find out who is the robber and they get married.
I like the story line. A man wanting to settle down. A girl all grown up. They knew each other like brother and sister, but the relationship changed. He was wanting to love her as a man does a woman. She wanted to love him as a brother. Eventually they came together as husband and wife.

Recommends it for: people who like Christian romance
This book is a light Christian romance novel set in Wisconsin in the 1800s. It was about two friends developing romantic feelings for each other and the struggle they went through as they saw their relationship changing.
Teresa Snyder
Maybe not as good as the first book in the series, but still a good book. I really enjoy finding these older books. This way I don't have to wait months for the next book to be released. Moving on to book 3.
Miss Pippi the Librarian
The Nolan needed help to run their dairy. Silas Cameron volunteers to assist the family he previously helped years ago.

Time Period: 1889

Reviewed from a personal copy.
vol. 2 of the Place called home is about Silas and Amy. "A Song for Silas finds Amy in need of a helping hand when her father falls and breaks his leg. The Lord leads Silas to be her helping hand.
I thought this was a good short story. The characters were a bit too "perfect" for me, but for as short as the novel was, I could tolerate it.

Very excited to read the last two in the series. Just sweet easy read books that have a message in them if you listen closely.
I enjoyed this book- it was a very fast read for me. Although not my favorite in this series it still a good book.
I liked this one better than the first one...cute. Fast and easy read.
This book was cute and kind of short. It was not, however, one of Wick's best.
I don't know what to write. It's just one of those fluffy love stories.
#2 of my 4 part Aunt Rainey assignment. They are getting better.
This is my Favorite Lori Wick book for many reasons!
It was okay but had trouble picking it up and completing.
An old favorite, always great to revisit.
actually a sweet story, mostly about a bachelor
It's been a while, but I love all her books...
