    A wonderful read, a story of love and much more

    If it's possible to imagine pictures like those of John P. Falter and Norman Rockwell in words, with a bit of Charles Sheldon with a small history lesson on the Anabaptist struggles in Russia in the early 1900's, all wrapped up in a love story, or rather several love stories, you would have in mind Meadowvale: A Novel. Mr. Chesterton charts the progress of the life of a marriage between a transplanted Oxford-trained English teacher of no particular faith and a Prairie-raised nurse who had left the Mennonite church but was slowly coming back. The development of their love and marriage, amidst the characters of small-town Saskatchewan in the last three decades or so, is the backdrop for their exploration of a faith-based life. The novel explores in a gentle way some of the big concerns of life, cancer and disease, families in distress, homosexuality, divorce and death, and the reader is perched at the shoulders of Tom and Kelly and their extended families as they find strength and comfort in their faith. It's not all happiness and harmonious resolutions (what life really is?), but it is a powerful story that I couldn't put down.

    A wonderful story of love and life.

    This is a wonderful story of a deep and abiding love. Through all of life's ups and downs, Tom and Kelly's love for one another, as well as for Jesus, endures. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a book about how Christian faith can carry you through the toughest times. It is not mawkish, nor is it in your face Christianity. The religious theme is like a soothing background to the main theme of family love and life.
