Janette Oke never fails to deliver. This book is a "soothing," read and, at least for me, is a blessing. You won't want to put this book down.

This is the first Janette Oke book that I have read. I really liked it. Especially the details of the everyday life in that time period. What a wonderful, easy and feel good read.

One of the Women of The West series, actually the first and it's sets the tone for all of them. This series is not connected to it's other books, other than it's another great Christian romance by Janette Oke set in the Old West!

She feels God nudging her toward ministry, but what options are there for a young single woman?

Emily Evans has a hard time getting herself to class on time, much less figuring out God's will for her life. Then, to her surprise, she feels that God is calling her into full-time Christian service. She expects the Lord will also provide her with a companion to share her life and ministry, but Emily does not want to marry any of the available young men. She squares her shoulders and decides she will accept the task of opening a new church in a pioneer community--alone.

When Emily arrives at her new assignment, she is disappointed to find the church building in disrepair. After many days of hard work fixing it up, she announces her first service and is once again disappointed, this time in the size of her congregation. Is her faith strong enough to stand against the local doubters and myriad challenges that will test her calling?
