Shiloh Autumn by Bodie and Brock Thoene

Buy at Amazon
"This is the saga of the Tucker and Canfield families in Shiloh, Arkansas, as they struggle to make it through the Great Depression after the stock-market crash of 1929. Based on the lives of Bodie's grandparents, this touching story mirrors the heartbreak and struggle of Depression-era America."

This was an excellent, yet sad, conclusion of the Tucker and Canfield families. It was interesting and a good portrayal of life during the Great Depression. The Thoenes do not attempt to sugar-coat anything; instead they create believable characters and plots.                                                                                                                                                                            

There was a certain scene that was unnecessary and should have been omitted; however, besides that, the book is clean and Christ-centered. It was refreshing to see how the Tucker and Canfield families relied on the Lord for help and the unique ways He answered. I felt the ending was rather dissapointing and unsatisfying. I do hope the authors plan to continue these families' stories.

This was an entertaining, heart-wrenching, and Christ-centered read. I highly recommend it. This book can be bought at,, etc.
