    • The Stuart Family: 8 children in the hills of Arkansas.The oldest three, Lylah, Amos, and Owens, decide to go their own way.What a great era. The beginning of the 1900's brought a lot of firsts. Planes and cars, just to name a few.Names such as Teddy Roosevelt and Randolph Hearst, fill the pages. Being a writer myself I found Hearst and his paper very interesting. (Not so much the man.)I read every book of the House of Winslow several years ago and found A Bright Tomorrow much the same type of w [...]


    • Summary TeaseBook started in late 1800s, a family with 8 children raised in Arkansas with a mother who believed in god and wants her kids to believe in god too but they don't.

    • Having read other novels from Gilbert Morris and his daughter also, I was not surprised that I was caught up in this family saga. Even though Will Stuart, the father is a weak individual, his wife taught their children about hard work, love and Jesus Christ. Mrs. Stuart dies in mid-life leaving her husband with a pack of kids still at home and him with a girlfriend on the side that talks him into a marriage of convenience if nothing else. A true stepmother she is not, but the Lord is looking out [...]


    • A Bright Tomorrow by Gilbert Morris Fourteen year old Owen Stuart and his brother Amos, who was eighteen, were close. They didn’t want their older sister to leave the farm in the Ozarks to attend Bethany Bible Institute in the late 1800’s. Lylah, the oldest boys, and their mother were expected to carry the load of the family while their father spent much of his time at musicals and dances. He would rather play an instrument with a band than work faithfully to provide for his family. Lylah wa [...]


    • This is the 1st of the Gilbert Morris series American Odyssey later renamed American Century. The book was later renamed A Bright Tomorrow.It is a great book. It starts from the end of the 1800- and goes through the beginning of the 1900s. It goes through the Spanish American war, Boxer Rebelion and even the flight of the Wright brothers. It also covers early stage, prize boxing and even the mob. Lots packed into one book. The characters are very well done and easy to like and want to read more [...]


    • I barely remember this book, although I finished it, which tells me 'it was ok' as the two stars indicate. I do love a Christian based book because it is refreshing and pleasant to read about people who, like me, try to please Christ and live a real Christian life, but my memory of this book is that the characters didn't really strike me as 'real' people. Plan to speed up my entry process so I have better recall.


    • Fairly decent Christian fiction. The writing and characters were better and more detailed than most. I did like the historical setting and how the characters blended into historical events. I'm going to read the next one, but more to solidify my own historical timeline of the early 1900s, and not necessarily for the sake of the writing.


    • I remember really enjoying Gilbert Morris' House of Winslow as a kid but I just could not get into this book. I read about halfway and finally gave up. I felt as if there was no depth to the characters. Instead of focusing on one, at least 3 points of view were going on and I anticipated a 4th to be added based upon the description.


    • Great readThis book is totally full of action and surprises. The reader is on edge throughout. Beautiful love story and full of the love of God.






    • Inspiring!Gilbert Morris is my kind of author. He adequately presents the need for Christ in the lives of his characters.
