I'd had this book on my shelves for an AGE. Probably over a decade at least. But what finally pushed me to pick this up and read it was the Book Riot Podcast — it's a book the hosts often refer to, constantly recommend, and at some point they asked, if you're a long-time listener of this show and haven't read this book yet...?

Okay, fine, I said. I'll read it.

And as soon as I did... the John Brown connection? The Kansas connection? The evolution of theology as influenced by current events/generations? No, I, TOO now want to know how I went so long without reading this!

I LOVED this book. Ravenously loved it. I gifted copies to multiple people I know. I loved the period, the tone, the theology, the Kansas/Iowa, the John Brown (who appears only peripherally in this picture but LOOMS LARGE), the small town pasturage, the prairie, the small town.

Do I love it enough to read the rest of the books? I don't know. I think the parts I am obviously interested in have already been told. But still. A five-star read, easily jumps to the list of the books of my heart forever.

I really wanted to love this book. Sadly, I was frustrated with the writing, the characters were one demential and not plausible. This could have been such a powerful read, but the writer lost me so many times early in the story. I had a hard time going on.

Such an important book with all of the recent events going on. Perkins-Valdez is an amazing writer and you can tell she does a lot of research when writing her books. Can’t wait to read whatever she writes next.
