I can see this novel made into a television series. I'm not kidding! When I first saw the cover I wasn't sure I'd like the story despite the intriguing summary on the back of the book. But I wasn't disappointed. The characters were rich and the drama contained real-life conflict that kept me reading. I was totally into this story and fell in love with the different romances as they occurred in their unique settings. One of a married woman and her battle-scarred husband, the other of a woman who...more

This started out slowly, but after the first two or three chapters I really started getting into it and had a hard time putting it down. The characters are a bit deeper than in some of the modern Christian fiction. There are basically three love stories going on, though none of them are overstated and entirely "fluffy" (the possible exception being Jo's romance). My favorite couple were Hank and Helen, who struggle after Hank's disfigurement in the war. Even Hank's daughter is scared of him.

great book, BUT ...

NOT quite as good as the previous 2 in the series. threw some new characters in here, w/out really explaining enough in detail who they were, nor what they were about.

i think the author jumped too far ahead in the future, and that's why it didn't tie together as well w/ the previous 2. there probably should have been a book in-between #'s 2 and 3.

if this was a stand-alone novel, tho, i'd have probably rated it a 5 versus the 4 that i gave it.

was still a good way to end the rea...more

As always, I was so happy with yet another Stephanie Grace Whitson. "Footprints on the Horizon" is the 3rd book in the "Pine Ridge Portraits" series, and it gives an interesting perspective on WW2, dealing with America's reaction to the PWs and prison labor.

I loved the sweet story and the way Stephanie can make me so uncertain about how things will end up - I'm always satisfied with her books, but that doesn't mean I saw all of her surprises coming!!

This is the third in a series. It is Christian historical fiction. It was very interesting. It is set during WWII, but the different spin is it involves German POWs that were sent to the US during the war. I had never read much about that before.

Footprints on the Horizon is set in the 1940s, during WWII. It follows the story of Josephine Hale as she falls in love with a German PW, Dieter Brock.
An excellent read.
Jennifer
For your typical Christian historical fiction, this series had more twists and turns than I was used to. I enjoyed it!

Since her first book, Walks the Fire, was published in 1995, Stephan...more
