All God's Children book. Any book by Thomas Eidson is good in my view

All God's Children book. All the poor blind seamstress needs is a little money and a few. Any book by Thomas Eidson is good in my view. All of his books are set in the Wild West, but even if you aren't a fan of films like "the good, the bad and the ugly", "Shane" or "Gunfight at the OK Corral" I think you will enjoy reading Thomas Eidson's works. Aug 28, 2019 Jennifer Morefield rated it really liked it.

All Gods Children: The Cult Experience - Salvation Or Slavery? is a non-fiction book on cults, by Carroll Stoner and Jo Anne Parke. The book was published in May 1977 in hardcover, and again in 1979 in paperback by Penguin Books. White's Collection Management in School Library Media Centers described the book as a critical and sensitive analysis on the effects cults can have on their converts and family members

Tom Eidson knows how to tell a story.

Tom Eidson knows how to tell a story. The mixture of nineteenthcentury misfits brought together under the mothering wing of a blindQuaker widow will make the reader deal with his own prejudices as the characters rise above the struggles of frontier America. This is one of Eidson's best offerings to date. It passes St. Agnes' Stand in character depth and dwarfs the plot of The Last Ride.

That's not entirely fair: Eidson (St. Agnes' Stand, 1994) does convey the unshaken purity of Pearl's faith effectively, sometimes even movingly. But the novel becomes more unreal, and predictable, as it progresses. It's a relief to report that nobody ties her to the railroad tracks, but Pearl does endure a dizzying profusion of disasters, including the opprobrium of lunkheaded neighbors who violently protest when she takes in, first, a black bare-knuckle fighter named Prophet who's fleeing a lynch mob, then a dispossessed Japanese family whose newly purchased land was reclaimed for unpaid.

Thomas Eidson is the acclaimed author of The Missing, which was made into a major motion picture directed by Ron Howard, St. Agnes’ Stand, All God’s Children, and Hannah’s Gift. Enjoyed a previous by Thomas Eidson so tried this and it kept my interest. i was in the middle of another book and had lost interest so this got me back into reading. Interesting combination of characters and well pictured.

A young widow struggling to raise four sons and hold onto her home on the frontier, Pearl Eddy, the sole Quaker in a Methodist town, sets herself against her neighbors when she shelters a Black man from a lynch mob
  • I thoroughly enjoyed this narrative. It may never win any awards for great literature, but the author has a fertile imagination and comes up with fascinating characters. The events in the story kept me riveted. It's funny, too. But the thing I enjoyed the most was finally reading a novel in which the main characters were truly heroic in their actions. The bad guys are really, really bad dudes (rape, murder, torture - for starters), and you want to stand up, whistle, and clap for the good guys.

  • Very nice book-totally enjoyedit

  • Mr Eidson turns in a third well written and thoroughly engaging story which will transport you in time to the hard life of the frontier. I found the book both interesting and profoundly moving in parts - and always entertaining as well as informative. Great literature: well, no. A great read - and one which does not resort to mega-block-buster fantasy - yes! Perhaps the strongest recommendation for the book is the fact that the reviews at this site are rarely less than 4 stars. Can we all be wrong?

  • Tom Eidson is the best writer.I have read all of his books and they get you hooked in the story from the start.This story was as great as the others.He grabs you from the start. I cant wait for him to write more. I heard they were making a movie out of St Agnes Stand a few years ago but never heard more about it. I hope they do, and do the story justice with good quality acting and directing.

  • This was an enjoyable little book I chanched upon at the supermarket. Yes, it's predictable, (as Kirkus Review on its high horse spouts), quaint and all that. Most books are of this kind. So what, that doesn't diminish the fact that it's still good. I enjoyed the little garden tips, the description of the grassy plains, and the part about burnt toast coffe is interesting. There's a coffee roasting store near where I live and when I drive by I'm struck by the scent of burnt toast. Really! Go figure. This is a peaceful story and that rooster is something else.
