Summary:

"In the dimness of the early morning I could see field after neighborhood field as I let my gaze wander around me. First there was ours-I supposed I would always think of the farm as ours-Grandpa's, Uncle Charlie's and mine, though in truth it really was just mine now. Guess that was one of the reasons I was whistling. Just yesterday Grandpa and Uncle Charlie had signed all the official papers to make the farm mine-really and legally mine. Joshua Chadwick Jones they read, clear as could be. The full impact had yet to hit me. But I was excited. Really excited. I mean, what other fella my age had a farm his own, title clear and paid for?"

"I sobered down a bit. It was a big responsibility. I mean, I was the one who had to make the farm bring forth now. Had to support Grandpa and Uncle Charlie and myself....And adding to the challenge was a desire for a family of my own...."

"You'll feel a part of this family's joys and sorrows as you read Spring's Gentle Promise. Joshua's faith in God is tested throughout the story and his commitment to trust the Lord is an inspiration."-BOOKTALK, WBHY Radio (Mobile, AL)

    This book about a mid-west family and their struggle to keep the family farm during the great dust bowl era is a bit slow. It would be great for a farmer because of all the detail about farm life but was not too exciting for a city girl.
