Gilbert Morris in his new book, "When The Heavens Fall" Book Two in the Winslow Breed Series published by Howard Books takes us back to England in the 1500's.

Young Brandon is a woman chaser and a gambler who is constantly in trouble. When he joins the army he seduces the wife of the commanding officer, is caught, flogged and discharged.

When the Heavens Fall is an enthralling fictional tale set during the reign of "bloody" Mary Tudor. I enjoyed entering the lives of the royals through the story and liked this book almost as much as the first one, Honor in the Dust. The story does a great job of taking the reader to the edge of the proverbial cliff. The author makes you hold your breath a number of times as bad things continue to get worse for the characters.

People who enjoy reading about the Tudors will enj

Recommended to Margaret by: reading the first novel in the series
Last year I eagerly read my first novel from Gilbert Morris the first in the Winslow Breed Series, Honor in the Dust: A Novel and enjoyed it immensely. This series is a prequel to the "famed House of Winslow Breed Series". Just this past week the second novel was released, titled When the Heavens Fall. First off let me tell you how much I love the covers from both of these books in the series so far. They are just hints of gorgeous. Even more attractive in person. Although, I do believe that the ...more

This book does an amazing job of showing the love and grace God has for us. Also if you like historical fiction then this book is right up your alley. It is set in Old England during Bloody Mary's reign. Anyone who wants to read a story full of romance, and adventure this book is for you.
Decent historical fiction book. Didnt read the first one, but may look for it. It wasnt the most interesting book I have ever read, but it was really easy to read and to get into.
Good book, but I didn't like it quite as much as the first in the series. I found some of the writing a little repetitive.
Fascinating reading!
