    One thought on “A Thorny Path”

    1. I enjoyed the previous three books in the Fairhaven Chronicles series, but this one was so over the top, it became silly A Thorny Path was like a collection of all of the most loved and perhaps legendary of Mormon mythology Not that these kinds of things haven t happened, but so many in a row, to one small group of people The others leaned in the same direction, but were at least reasonably well written, with an eye toward building an appreciation of the characters This one seemed to leave out t [...]

    2. This series had been enjoyable reading for me Number 1, I loved the southern accents spelled out in its pages I loved the family, the characters, in these books They are real people I feel like I know them, and like them The father, the Bishop, and his wife, I especially relate to They taught me so much about acceptance, good feelings and attitudes, forgiveness, overcoming faults, and on and on I just love them and what I learned from them The story was interesting to me as well This fourth book [...]

    3. The element of the story in this, the 4th and final book in the Fairhaven Chronicles series, that I found most touching and memorable was the struggle Bishop Shepherd encounters when he attempts to do his family history research He and his family undertake a trip to search out the area Bishop Shepherd s family originated As he prayerfully seeks guidance in this task he and his family encounter people who direct them to a gold mine of information about Bishop Shepherd s family and they make some [...]

    4. This book was a gift from my mother for Valentine s Day It is a new series to us, neither I or my mother had never heard of it before, so my mother didn t know she was picking up book four of a series when she decided to get me a sweet gift for Valentine s Day Having said this, I thought that the book was just mediocre It didn t hold much excitement or anything that would keep me coming back for Maybe it would have helped to have read the first three books and become familiar and attached to t [...]

    5. this is the last book in the series I have read them all and enjoyed them the characters are people you would recognize, the place a lovely small town This book delves into genelogy as the family goes on vacation to search the bishop s fathers side It is a productive trip as they find they had been mispelling the last name On return they must deal with their anti mormon neighbor her hate filled letters to people in the neighborhood and a anti mormon rally that is coming s an easy book to read an [...]

    6. So sad to have finished this truly great series Oscar and I have loved these books, and always looked forward to reading them together I hope the author will someday write about Fairhaven I will miss the characters so much Oscar commented how emotionally invested you become in the characters I felt the same way This book begins with the Shepherds on a trip to Georgia to work on Jim s family history He is searching for info on his maternal grandfather The entire story is well written as always. [...]

    7. Funny everyday LDS life type of book about a family and their adventures Cheesy at times, preachy at times, but an easy read a quick read Really pretty right on about ward members, callings and their interactions.

    8. I really liked this book Gives you a motivation to do family history Also fun to go through the frustrations the bishop goes through with the anti Mormon group.

    9. I enjoyed reading this The book doesn t have as much depth nor is it as well written as the Mitford series, but I think the books in the Fairhaven Chronicles series get better as you go.

    10. This series is like reading about your life and your ward I can identify most of the characters and their problems and joys I enjoyed reading about Fairhaven.

    11. An interesting journey I think there needs to be a book five and I think the baby needs to be named Benjamin.
