Publisher Description

Fans of inspirational fiction eagerly devour historical novels from Christy Award winner Lynn Austin. In All Things New, the acclaimed author weaves a tale set in the aftermath of the Civil War. Josephine Weatherly and her mother, Eugenia, return to their Virginia plantation, but their once-grand home has lost its lustre. Jo's father and brother are dead, and the war has left her remaining brother broken and embittered. Bonding with Lizzie, one of the few remaining servants, Jo struggles to rebuild her life-and her faith in God.

    " I did like it, but it wasn't a satifing read like most of her's. I felt myself liking the wrong guy and wanting her to end up with him. I wanted things to happen that never did. I wanted characters to develop more than they did. I liked the guy she ended up with but thought of him as more the brother type and yet I new there was a chance at the beginning that was likely who she would end up with but I was cheering for the guy she was taking care of. Then I discovered something horrible about his past, but I believe in repentance and changing so I guess I hoped he had changed enough the the truth coming out would start to cleanse his soul and allow him to heal and be kind and find love. I might be way off to other's thinking but this book just didn't do it for me romantically. It was still a good read and historically I loved it. "

    " Another fantastic book by Lynn Austin! :) I like how there is deep feeling and emotion woven in. The arguments are realistic to what people from the South would have probably felt after the war. "

    " This was enjoyable. I wish more people could have thought like that at the end of every war. Maybe there would be less of them. "

    " I enjoyed this book, but that's no surprise as I really enjoy Lynn Austin's books. Setting is in the South after the war, trying to return to things like they were before the war, but discovering that things had to change in order to move forward. Good story and characters. "

    " Super fun, easy Christmas break read. A few things that make you think and a lot of moments to just escape to another time and place. The end is rather neat and tidy, but that is what you expect from a book like this. "
