In My Father’s House by Bodie Thoene
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I pulled this one off of a bookshelf when recommending more reading for a recently converted Christian. I decided to keep this one out and reread it because I didn’t remember anything important about it.
Now I am only critical of one thing. Why do a prologue with the Battle of Britain in 1940 when the timeline of the book is World War 1 and the immediate time following? The book was well written and kept me raging, laughing, and crying at turns throughout. How people can be so hateful and divided and claiming to love a loving God that would never tolerate such behavior? Everything in this book is a correct historical reference, the characters are of course fictional but were developed to illustrate the interactions in society for different ethnicities, nationalities, religions, and other cultural anomalies. The neighborhoods of New York are echoed across the country, and even today some 100 years later there is still intolerance of people of color, especially in the southern United States.
