✈ [PDF / Epub] ✅ One Shenandoah Winter By T. Davis Bunn ✸ – Peakpopa.info
T Davis Bunn is one amazing author He painted the most a wonderful pictures of the Shenandoah valley people s life It made me want to live in that time eventho the times were hard than we can imagine A wonderful book also about God s love for us even when we do not know about Him or want anything to do with Him. This novel is set in a small town in the Shenandoah Valley early in the 1960s The town of Hillsboro has been without a doctor for almost 3 years and the nearest hospital is at least 40 miles away over winding back roads In this community many of the residents do not have phones, they will doctor themselves until they are near death s door and often refer to a doctor as the Gatekeeper When big city Dr Nathan Reynolds arrives he feels as if he has walked into a town frozen in the past. An Eccentric Old Man Is Dying Of Cancer, And His Painfully Proud Daughter Must Ask An Embittered Doctor For Help In This Moving Story Of Sacrifice, Sorrow, And Redemption, A Quiet Town In The Shenandoah Valley And The Powerful City Of Washington DC Become The Settings For A Story Of Personal Healing And Renewed Faith Written By A Beloved And Best Selling Author, One Shenandoah Winter Is A Heart Touching Novella That Reveals The True Meaning Of Christmas This is another book I almost removed from my to read list because when I reread my review of Prayers of a Stranger I saw that I had given that book only 2 stars and had said that Bunn was an author I would not be inspired to read again I m glad I disregarded that and went ahead with this Sometimes you read a just the right book at just the right time What kept me from giving this 5 stars is that this book is very heavily Christian in some places Sometimes that worked for me, as in the following sermon of Pastor Brian, Our gathering is a divinely inspired assembly, and in our joining we declare this to be holy ground The very moment is holy We are not here by chance or choice God has created a moment of appointment with Him We call this holy encounter the Sabbath worship The intent is that here in this moment, our lives will be touched by the Word, by the Truth We therefore ask the Spirit to reach into this gathering and have an impact upon this worship, upon this moment, and upon our lives We ask to be enriched with the power to raise us above our fears, to give us a healing from our past, and bring us to eternal victory There were a few other passages where it got a little too heavy for me, thus 4 stars instead of 5 It s the story of a big city Raleigh doctor who comes to find peace, comfort, and redemption in a small rural town The cover of the hardback would lead you to believe the story takes place in the 1860 s rather than the actual time setting of the 1960 s.This book made me a little sad sometimes but, overall, it made me feel good. This is a great book with true to life characters I would love to meet them This book was copyright in 1998 but I just discovered it I m pleased Bunn wrote displaying the Lord throughout the book It is refreshing to read the Good News written so clearly You don t see that much any I appreciate the inch by inch revealing and the warm Presence throughout the story I cried many times Thank you for a great read This book had so much potential but fell short in many ways I was looking for a book to read in front of my wood burning stove that would bring feelings of comfort and warmth during this holiday season This book had the foundation for greatness poor character development was at the root of my disappointment I wish Bunn had taken half as much time developing his characters and the plot as he did to describe the Shenandoah Valley the book was set in. This Christian novella really hit the spot for me right now The author presented the beauty and majesty of nature in such a wonderful way He also represented mountain people in a very sympathetic manner that wasn t overdone I enjoyed this book and have also read other works by this author that I found positively engaging. T Davis Bunn captures well the flavor of a small mountain town and the struggle of an urban doctor carrying some emotional baggage who moves to Hillsboro What follows is a heartwarming look at human nature and the intervention of God into the lives of people It is a story of transformation You will want to laugh, cry and sigh, sometimes all at the same time Very well done book. What I just may ve loved about this little hardback book the most The illustrations Nice, soft, cozy ones in gray hues, spread throughout the pages Who says adults aren t supposed to get a kick out of books with pictures I wish far novels had them.This winter tale of a small American town in the hills in the 60s is a rather somber one, but it does have its fiery moments, along with good helpings of light and laughter Some places struck me as not being the subtlest of this author s work, as if the story were trying a little too hard And while the restful pacing of this novel is fitting, some points seemed to slip from simply resting into stalling.But the story holds all of the seasonal charm I expected it to Definitely the kind of novel to curl up and read with a hot mug of cocoa Or coffee, for those who are partial to that particular beverage. I think I would describe this book as a celebration of life and of death I enjoyed the Appalachian background and references to people who lived humbly, but with strength of character It was about accepting life, and death with grace and about finding happiness in spite of the struggle For me, Nathan s conversion to God was not the main focus of this book It was about learning to live with life s devastations and rising about them It was about accepting death when it comes It was about living well and finding the joy.
