Book Description

1 July 2006 House of Winslow (Book 38)
Disappointed in his dream of becoming an artist in France, Tyler Winslow plans to return to America, a bitter failure. But first he stops to visit a former acquaintance, a lovely woman named Jolie Vernay. Suddenly the Germans attack France, and Tyler has only one chance to leave. But Jolie begs him to help her take three Jewish orphans to England. Reluctantly, he agrees. With danger lurking everywhere and more children to save, Tyler learns to be a man of courage—and a man of God. (House of Winslow Book 38)

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasing entry in long running series 11 Aug 2006
By Christina Lockstein - Published on Amazon.com
Hesitant Hero by Gilbert Morris is the next book in the House of Winslow series. In this installment, artist Tyler Winslow leaves for Paris to learn his art at the beginning of World War II. He soon falls in love with the beautiful doctor Jolie Varney and is caught up in a plan to sneak three Jewish children from the country before the Nazis can find them. This book is so much better than the previous entry in the series. The writing is much smoother, and the characters far more believable. The romance grows realistically, and the action is easy to follow. While the race across France to the coast is a little similar to a previous Winslow book, the story is still a good one. The book is sure to please fans of the HOW series and new readers as well. I look forward to the next book in the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another keeper 19 Jan 2007
By Julie - Published on Amazon.com
The House of Winslow has had some fascinating stories. Though they've spent quite some time in the WWII era, it's still a good story. There are some slow sections, but learning about Tyler's failures and eventual triumphs is still neat. Jolie's interesting too, though I think they already used that name in a previous book, (it's still a cool name).

So what do we have? We have some orphans, a handsome Winslow, and a French doctor-chick who're running all over France....what could go wrong?

The Hesitant Hero by Gilbert Morris continues into World War II. What member of the family will we meet next?
Tyler Winslow is the son of missionary parents and is anxious to begin his painting career. He starts school but gets distracted by a beautiful woman named Caroline. She is wealthy and feels that Tyler should be available whenever she wants him. These distractions cause Tyler to flunk out of college. One night he winds up in the ER and meets Jolie Vernay a medical student. This chance meeting brings on changes for Tyler. Will he be able to pursue his painting further? Tyler winds up in France struggling to continue with his painting. His path gives him the opportunity to meet up with Jolie again. She asks Tyler for help with a problem. Will he be able to think beyond himself and help Jolie? Or will the events leading up to World War II change his prospective?
My Thoughts:
I absolutely love the House of Winslow series. I also love the novels that focus on War in history. They create interesting stories to share with the current generation. The events focus on what happened leading up to World War II. The author asks an important question. Can God change our path by putting us through certain trials?
He does a great job of coming up with character driven conflict. Tyler Winslow can he learn that others are more important than himself? Jolie Vernay can she learn to accept the flaws in others and open her heart? Then there are the children Yolande, Damien, and Rochelle will they have the faith to make it?

Tyler Winslow had a desire to be artists but not the discipline to fulfill that dream. But like all when the Lord got a hold of him what a change. The struggles of being in France at its take over by Hitler and a young women with moral strength was the instruments that God used to get his attention.

I started collecting this series in 2009 after finding them in a second hand store. The fact that I now have all 35 is totally amazing. Thanks Amazon!
