Series: Gresham Chronicles
The Jewel of Gresham Green is populated by a varied cast of characters. No two are alike. The main character, Jewel, is a strong, yet kind woman who exemplifies the peace a faith-filled woman can bring. Though Blackwells characters are not particularly engaging, they are honest, showing their flaws as well as their charms. The relationships, largely familial, between the characters are believable and charming. The most touching of the books relationships is between the vicars son and his aloof wife. Their marital struggles and disappointments are touchingly honest as they reveal the importance of commitment.
Blackwell does a good job of providing the reader with many and varied plotlines within one novel. Her side characters are given generous page-time, creating the cozy, small-town feel one would expect to characterize a dairy village.
Each of The Jewels plot threads is tidily concluded at the novels close. Blackwell even throws the reader an unexpected twist, redeeming what seems an unavoidable injustice. Sadly, however, one of the novels most promising romances seems rather forced.
The Jewel of Gresham Green is commendable for the gentle way it approaches adult themes through skillful implication rather than explicit description. The Christian message in the novel is not a pointed one, but permeates the entire book through the actions and faith of its Christian characters. The theme of Gods saving power in difficult situations is particularly displayed. Christs providential ordering of events brings peace to even the most difficult of the books conflicts.
Overall, The Jewel of Gresham Green is a novel with little to criticize or extol. It is a pleasant story, with its strongest points are the variety of its characters and the quick pace with which Blackwell tells her story. She also sets a beautiful scene and defines her characters through their actions rather than lengthy descriptions. This book is a good choice for those seeking a casual and comfortable read. -- Lauren M. Peltier, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

I appreciate the gentle, nonviolent, modest style of Ms. Blackwell's writing. I felt as if I'd become a resident of Gresham and these were my friends. Thank you, Ms. Blackwell for not detailing the intimate scenes; it enhances the purity of the love relationship. The novels were very soul-satisfying.
