    1. One of the best reads I've had in a long time. The characters are very vibrant, Bob Inman makes the town come alive, and with each page, I became more enthralled. I liked this book so much that I went and bought a copy of my own and intend to read it again, something that I very rarely do. I cannot recommend it enough for someone who wants a good-hearted yet thoughtful read.

    2. Story of Tibbetts family in World War II South. Jake, a newspaperman, observes his family and neighbors in thie tale of Southern rural life.

    3. Good story about a small town Southern newspaper editor and the travails his family faced. It occurts during WWII. A streak of mental illness seems to follow the family as we learn about 5 generations. Recommended. Heartfelt family tale.

    4. Home Fires Burning: A Novel was a book that I'd had for years and never read, but I wanted a book to read in between Book Club books so I chose this. There were times that I skimmed because the writing wasn't developing the story fast enough for me. I kept reading because I wanted to see how it ended. I liked that all the characters were dynamic and were participatory, but it was sometimes difficult to figure out which character was being described until I read on for quite a bit. One section th [...]

    5. " 'Ah' Jake Tibbetts thought, 'we are all pilgrim souls here, all ragged wayfarers, stopping to huddle against the cold and dark around what we call our home fires. Does a man indeed learn anything? Only that his home is his own heart. And there he must abide.' " Wow. After reading all the reviews, and having read Robert Inman's "Old Dogs and Children", I thought I knew what to expect. I was disappointed in this book at first. The story seemed to drag in the beginning; lots of characters, a litt [...]

    6. One of my favorite all-time books. The first "southern" book I read outside of a literature class. My grandmother had a signed hardback (not sure from where) and passed it along to me when I was home one weekend on a visit from Delaware. I was so hungry for the people: the voices, the humor, feeling of community.

    7. Home Fires Burning is my favorite book by Robert Inman. I loved reading about the interactions of the irascible grandfather, who was a character of a character!! and his family. I laughed out loud at some of the scenes that Inman created.

    8. Historical fiction, but more about human nature and the challenges of being part of a family and community than about WWII. I enjoyed the story.
