About the Author

Robert Funderburke's life is steeped in the south. Born by coal oil lantern light in a tin-roofed farmhouse outside Liberty, Mississippi, he has spent nearly his entire life in one environ of the South or another.

After receiving a B.A. in Sociology from Louisiana State University, Funderburke worked for the Louisiana Welfare Department across river from his home of Baton Rouge. Navigating a land of old antebellum homes, slave cabins, sugar cane plantations, swamps, and bayous he became intimately familiar with the landscape that would later fill his works of fiction. He spent another year working across the river from New Orleans as well.

Most of his work with the state was in probation and parole midnight arrest runs, scuffling with men intent on not heading to jail, participating in investigations. This work proved the foundation for his Dylan St. John character and has been fodder for the authentic mysteries enjoyed by many.

A protégé of Gilbert Morris, Funderburke continues his ministry of Christian Fiction in Louisiana where he lives with his wife, Helen, and their daughter.

Such a delight. While reading this book, so many familiar places in Baton Rouge, LA were mentioned, reminding me of my childhood growing up in Baton Rouge. I felt this book was about a typical family growing together and apart, taking place after World War II, with daily life struggles of a relationship and raising children. It really involves you in each individual's life and you feel as though you really know each individual. Note: this book is the first in a series of four books with the life story of these individuals growing and developing over the years

Lane and Catherine are married sweethearts with a family. When WWII ends, they attempt to start life in a small town, only to get an offer of big city life. With their move to Baton Rouge, LA and Cajun country, temptation is too great, and Lane makes some unwise choices which threaten his career, his marriage and his life. The author does a fairly good job of turning around this hard working, hard playing ex-GI who is now a practicing attorney and father to 4 kids.
A great beginning to a Christian fiction. series

Am not fond of male Christian authors and this verified my view. Couldn't even finish it. I had checked out the first three in this series from the library. I was glad that I hadn't purchased them. Would have tossed them. Males and females do have different thought processes and that might be why I did not enjoy this book. This writer, and several other male Christian authors, seem to emphasize the female body. By page 77, I was getting pretty concerned that almost every time that the wife was the speaker, a certain part of the female body was mentioned. Maybe I run in different circles, but... When the affair started, I had to quit reading. Aren't we supposed to flee lustful thinking? The details mentioned were too explicit for Christian fiction. I didn't see much difference between this book and Bridges of Madison County. Didn't finish that one either. Am more fond of good fiction with a little LOVE thrown in...not lust. Having a master's degree in Library Science and an undergraduate in Elementary might make me more sensitive to too much detail but so be it. I have critiqued quite a few books. Books published under the guise of Christian fiction should be different. Affairs would have to be mentioned but not the sordid details. Never again will I pick up this author even if he is from Baton Rouge.
