    Big Men s Boots is a piece of historical fiction set in Wales in 1904, at a time of great social and political upheaval It is based on true newspaper reports from the era Wales has been know as The Land of Revivals since around the 3rd Century.The story is about the Welsh Revival 1904 1905 To explain fully what a Revival is I shall quote from the book A Revival is a Supernatural phenomenon that occurs when God pours out his Spirit the Holy Spirit on a people, group or country, miraculous Big Men s Boots is a piece of historical fiction set in Wales in 1904, at a time of great social and political upheaval It is based on true newspaper reports from the era Wales has been know as The Land of Revivals since around the 3rd Century.The story is about the Welsh Revival 1904 1905 To explain fully what a Revival is I shall quote from the book A Revival is a Supernatural phenomenon that occurs when God pours out his Spirit the Holy Spirit on a people, group or country, miraculously healing and transforming them, this phenomenon often spreads through the nation and across the world This story revolves around a family group who live in North Wales in a slate mining community Owen is a young boy gifted with second sight, his older brother Huw works in the slate quarry, his father is a Baptist Minister and his mother is a supporter of the women in the community The book opens with the funeral of Owen s young friend Stephen who died on the mountains after a fall when the two lads were out Owen loves the mountains he finds them spiritually uplifting, but he is suffering in his grief at the loss of his friend.There has been a long strike at the mines and miners who have gone back to work for the sake of their families are being labelled Blacklegs and there is a lot of bad feeling towards these strike breakers Owen s parents try to bring the community back together by encouraging forgiveness Chapel meetings are a large part of this community and Jacob tries to get the men to turn back to the word of God.There is much talk of a Revival to save the people and turn them from the evil which filters in There have been many Revivals before and the talk is about a new one coming soon Local women Anna is a prophetic and she announced the Revival will come from the South It becomes the full focus of many of the people, they believe it will be their saviour like the coming of Jesus Critiques call it a social hysteria.Owen is visited by an Angel and in December he is given an earthly assignment by a golden being He does struggle with the decisions he must make, but he also has the love and support of his family The belief in the Revival is so strong that the power the people have when they gather together is enormous As the Revival takes over there are miracles of healing and men and women convert from their old bad ways to a new enlightened life.This isn t an easy read, it is filled with religion and Biblical references The writing style has many long paragraphs covering several pages which left me wishing forbreaks to make the reading experience less intense The building of the Revival is very good, with the scene well set You can understand the fears those outside of Wales had for this strength and power that the people created An interesting read about a subject I knew nothing about when I began the book

    This is a lovely little book full of style and history I think the reason this book works so well is because it comes from a historical, social and cultural side rather than a wholly religious side It obviously is a theme that runs throughout the book and is the main topic but it doesn t feel too overwhelming because so many other themes are interwoven throughout The book on the whole is set in North Wales during the 1904 revival, and using a small slate quarrying village as the backdrop the This is a lovely little book full of style and history I think the reason this book works so well is because it comes from a historical, social and cultural side rather than a wholly religious side It obviously is a theme that runs throughout the book and is the main topic but it doesn t feel too overwhelming because so many other themes are interwoven throughout The book on the whole is set in North Wales during the 1904 revival, and using a small slate quarrying village as the backdrop the book weaves a tale of poverty and hardship but is constantly uplifted by the community spirit and the characters faith in their religion This contrasted with the political unrest at the time that is sympathetically managed helps make a interesting tale It is a moving story and is both believable and incredibly engaging I found myself feelinginvolved and intrigued by the book and learning about the rifts that were emerging during this time period The story centres on the Evan s family who have Christian beliefs and despite their father being a Baptist pastor he conveys the same doubts that surround the Christian faith and are discussed today making it feelreal and honest about Christianity and religion as a whole.The descriptions of the rugged Welsh landscapes are beautifully described and the language used throughout really helps to transport the reader to the little village The characters are well built up especially Owen who is an incredibly sensitive and sweet character and his family are built with effervescent character profiles that continue to evolve as the book continues The plot moves with the perfect amount of pace and although not a huge amount of action, in contrast to some fiction books, it didn t bog down in too much description helping to move the narrative along In terms of negatives for me some of thewild visions that Owen had made me question how believable the story was and how much was fact and fiction in terms of the characters belief in religion, but being a lover of historical fiction it is also a positive showing how submerged I was in the novel and the characters.Overall I would really recommend this wonderfully written book and a very well researched novel The style is beautifully written and although I personally know very little about this time in history I feel like I was opened up to something rather magical Even if you re not interested in a story that tells a religious story it is worth a read for the style of writing alone I have another book in the pipeline to read from this author, and after reading this I really can t wait Wonderful I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review

    What drew me to start reading Big Men s Boots was the setting of the Welsh revival in 1904 05 What could beexciting on its face than a historic outpour of the Holy Spirit According to Barroso, Wales was primed for change English landowners clashed with common Welshmen on every front Labor unions were taking up arms Welsh Nonconformists chafed against Anglicans, who spoke another language and seemed to have all of the power Would rising up against the English businessmen bring equality What drew me to start reading Big Men s Boots was the setting of the Welsh revival in 1904 05 What could beexciting on its face than a historic outpour of the Holy Spirit According to Barroso, Wales was primed for change English landowners clashed with common Welshmen on every front Labor unions were taking up arms Welsh Nonconformists chafed against Anglicans, who spoke another language and seemed to have all of the power Would rising up against the English businessmen bring equality and justice to the Welsh, or would it drive all jobs out of the country The story begins with three men praying over the body of a young man who had passed away three days prior They hold nothing back in urging God to act, even calling the boy to rise in Christ s name, believing their earnest faith will produce the miracle they require Outside the window, the boy s friend Owen Evans, 13, also prays The whole community must reckon with their grief and what they believe as social trouble begins to brew Owen s growing faith and what appears to be a prophetic gift frame up the rest of the story.I want to praise this book and recommend it without reservation That s what I want to do with every book But I have to be honest and say I didn t finish reading it Because I didn t finish it, I delayed reviewing it until now It feels overly long Historical novels have their own pace as do readers Perhaps you would enjoy itthan I did Original post here

    So far the surprise read of 2015 Despite my initial trepidation this turned out to be a very good read indeed Very well written and as a non believer despite the use of quotes from the bible not nearly as preachy as I had feared The author actually does an exemplary job in painting a picture of a family and indeed a community bolstered by their faith, a faith that though deep is not beyond being questioned as we see through the eyes of the narrator, fourteen year old preacher s son, Owen So far the surprise read of 2015 Despite my initial trepidation this turned out to be a very good read indeed Very well written and as a non believer despite the use of quotes from the bible not nearly as preachy as I had feared The author actually does an exemplary job in painting a picture of a family and indeed a community bolstered by their faith, a faith that though deep is not beyond being questioned as we see through the eyes of the narrator, fourteen year old preacher s son, Owen.Such wonderfully and sympathetically drawn characters A landscape beautifully portrayed A period in time and place perfectly captured It is perhaps these just as much as the historical, social and political aspect of the story that appealed to me in a way I truly wasn t expecting The first book in a trilogy, I eagerly await the next instalments.Copyright Tracy Terry Pen and Paper.Disclaimer Received for review from the publishers, no financial compensation was asked for nor given
