It Is Well

Jonathan Beecher, a middle-aged widower and small-town store owner, has never asked for much. But lately, all too much is being asked of him. The bombing of Pearl Harbor plunges America into World War II and deeply fractures Jonathans own family. His eldest son, a civilian contractor, is trapped on a Japanese-occupied island in the Pacific. Jonathans feckless younger son ignores his fathers pleas to stay home and joins the army. And his bright, devoted daughter, who Jonathan hoped would go to college, elopes with a brutally abusive man instead.Jonathan has always met adversity with quiet faith, but as his emotional and financial losses accumulate, so do his doubts. In the midst of his pain, Sarah, a widow herself, emerges as a kind, compelling friend. Powerfully drawn to Sarah, Jonathan struggles to remain true to his late wife.James D. Shipmans tender, wise novel examines the paradox of human suffering: how irrevocable loss, if we are willing to let it, begets spiritual gain....

    And so I finished this one after all. Thanks, book OCD! It Is Well was my Kindle First pick from October 2016. It was shortly after this I decided I would only download one of Amazon’s free monthly offerings if it really grabbed my attention since I have a lengthy TBR list.

    Jonathan Beecher is a widower with three late teen/young adult children, a struggling business, and a romantic interest in a widow newly arrived in town. The story follows the actions and subsequent consequences of each charac

    Eh

    Well written and the history is decent, but shows racism against Germans and not just for the time period. Basically says the one German character being a jerk is typical.

    The main character blames God for their own bad decisions, not to mention the lead character seems to forget his sons as soon as his love interest responds to his apology.

    The love interest is also not the best person; she immediately screams at him after his apology without any regard to the man’s personal dilemmas (dead so

    As a free Kindle First pick, I had high hopes that this would be an enthralling historical fiction novel. I was unaware that this would partially be a faith-based romance, and therefore, did not meet my expectations in the least. Perhaps I should have read the product description more in depth. The writing was rather bland and repetitive, and the progression quite frustrating.

    I have little patience for people using the Bible as an excuse for unacceptable behavior such as domestic violence. The p

    Well written but frustrating

    I read to “get away.” I do the same in movies. Sometimes I prefer the fairy tale endings. Much like a Nicholas Sparks tearjerker, this story is determined to be realistic to a fault. I found myself hoping the author would give this poor guy a break. However, it seems that everything that could go south does. Moreover, it all seems to finally happen on one day. I was frustrated that there wasn’t at least one character that was able to just have things go right for them

    Following the lives of a family in a small town through WWII, we see aspects of life as a storekeeper, a young woman, a civilian contractor and a new army recruit.

    It wasn't particularly *bad*, but it also wasn't great. The historical facts were obviously researched and somewhat interesting, but there was no life in the story. The characters - with just a couple of minor exceptions - were cardboard cutouts. (view spoiler)

    3.5 Stars. Intriguing historical fiction.

    This story is set during World War II. It follows the members of the Beecher family. We learn about Jonathan, the father who lost his wife to cancer, and his sons Matthew and Luke and his daughter Mary. We learn that each character is not perfect that they each have their own vulnerabilities and challenges. They are after all human.

    Jonathan made a promise to his late wife on her deathbed that he would not marry again and he believes that he has to honor h

    Some of the reviews suggested this book was "too religious," which really intrigued me. So much of secular literature either ignores faith or tries to discredit it. I actually found it refreshing to see people relying on their faith in their day-to-day life. Plus, given the book's setting during World War II, faith played an authentic role in the book. I was attracted to this story on many levels, but one was because my aunt -- raised in South Georgia -- met and married a military guy who moved ...more

    Rating: 4.0/5.0

    The story follows the members of the Beecher family, Jonathan (a father who lost his wife to cancer), his two sons (Mathew & Luke) and daughter (Mary). The story is set during world war 2 times. Historically I find it to be very accurate. Through the whole book we follow each one of these characters, we see their vulnerabilities and worries. The characters are very well written and unique, you will not see any perfect character here, like us they are very human and have their
