Penelope's Book of the Month-October 2020


Faith is Not Silent


Author: Billie Fulton


Inside the Prologue: An old cemetery lies in the middle of a hayfield on our farm in Missouri. For a century and half, seven souls have lain forgotten in silence. ……… We never could have foreseen the chain of events that occurred that day when our ten-year-old grandson asked the simplest of questions that began our journey to discover the hearts of seven people.


 My sister asked me to read Faith is not Silent.  The first three chapters set up the scene for the captivating story to come. The discovery of seven keys, a search of the attic, and a journal take you inside the intriguing world of Frances Neal-Catts-Crawford. Seven-year-old Frances makes her first entry on February 8, 1799 and in April 1890, at the age of ninety-eight, she writes for the final time. In between the time span is a peek inside of a real family who lived through a long span of good and troubled times in history. Actual diary entries along with facts of the time, make this story real.


You will be inspired by the strong faith of a woman who thanked God everyday even when it was a hard one. I will not soon forget Frances and her family. You won't either.
