Another awesome book by Janette Oke about a young family in the 1930's and some of the challenges faced especially after they care for the daughter of one of the wife's friends. It also tells about the concern and care of elderly grandparents as they age. A must read!!
A story of quiet strength, forged and tested in the crucible of life...a good read as always with Janette Oke...
Many issues that we face in life, such as aging parents. Loving a child that was given to you to love and nourish and now the birth mother wants to take back. A very touching story and how God works in our lives to work things out for us when we can't.
Wonderful, wonderful read
(from the back)
If Virginia could have chosen to accept or dicard all the changes that came her way, she gladly would have let most of them pass right by herself and her family. She loves her life-living on the farm with her parnets and her grandparents. But a change that is tearing at her herat is the gradual but steady physical decline in Grandma Marty and Grandpa Clarke. She cannot imagine their familiar farm home without their welcoming smiles and their words of wisdom that arise from decades of life experiences and a solid faith in God.
And their lovely daughter Mindy, who has blessed their home ever since her mother left the tiny child with them, has been encouraged and guided to pray for that mother all these years. Is God answering that prayer, or it the worst nightmare any family could face now upon them?
Truly a gem! Didn't want to put it down. Janette Oke has woven a wonderful story through her Prarie Series books. She captivates the reader with the story of Virginia's unselfish living and heartbreaking trials leaving us suspended until the very end. Faith, courage, heartache, unselfishness etc., allowing the reader to feel the true life struggles and joy endured by this Christian family. I highly recommend this series.
This book is about Virginia and her family dealing with the reappearance of Mindy's birth mother and what results it entails.
