Walk by Faith

Availability: Ready to download

No one thought that the Second Street boarding house would be destroyed by arsonists. No one wanted to believe that Nate Johnson would be beaten simply because of his race. But things have gotten ugly in Blaineton, New Jersey. It is in the middle of the Civil War and the abolitionist sympathies of the people in Maggie Blaine Smith's boarding house have made them a target f No one thought that the Second Street boarding house would be destroyed by arsonists. No one wanted to believe that Nate Johnson would be beaten simply because of his race. But things have gotten ugly in Blaineton, New Jersey. It is in the middle of the Civil War and the abolitionist sympathies of the people in Maggie Blaine Smith's boarding house have made them a target for racist and Copperhead forces. When the violence threatens to get worse, the sheriff suggests that they move until things calm down. Maggie's husband Eli has a proposal for them: his two sisters need help aiding fugitive slaves evade the Confederate Army and find freedom in the north. However, first they must relocate to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Maggie and her family risk the move, hoping that they will find some badly-needed peace there. But can that happen when newspaperman Eli and reporter/photographer Chester Carson are off covering the war? Can they find peace when Maggie's son-in-law Edgar and her other daughter's beau, Patrick, are still in the army? How can Maggie and the remaining members of her family start anew in a strange place? And how will all of them hold on to their courage, strength, and faith as the war rages and Confederate and Union forces march into Pennsylvania?

    A very good read! Janet Stafford is able to bring these characters to life with historical accuracy and thorough character development. Knowing the faith most people had in this time period makes this novel ever more authentic. I am looking forward to her next book in this series of short novels I can't put down. A very good read!

    I enjoyed this book by Janet Stafford. I am not that familiar with the Civil War as it was only something that I studied in school or from reading Gone With the Wind. Maggie is a different type of person for the time. She didn't see people by the color of their skin, that didn't matter to her. When things heat up for Maggie and her "family" they have to move. Even after they move, war comes to Maggie while her husband is off covering the war. This story is about how Maggie finds the strength and I enjoyed this book by Janet Stafford.

Well written and you can see yourself as Maggie, trying her best to survive. If there is another Maggie book, I hope to find it to read. I tried finding the first book but had no luck. Thank you Janet for the book! I enjoyed it!

    I absolutely loved her first book Saint Maggie, but Janet Stafford outdid herself on Walk By Faith. It's an awesome story with a little bit of everything. Her characters are incredible, she hits on so many issues that cause controversy in today's world with a fresh eye, and the storyline is so compelling (I HAD to finish it in two days!). It's not at all preachy, but instead makes you more aware of your reactions to certain situations.

Maggie is such a strong, forthright character -especially for the time period - you can't help but love her. The elements of loyalty and friendship are wonderful. I have to recommend both Saint Maggie and Walk By Faith!
