Janet Oke is one of my favorite authors and I throughly enjoyed her biography. It was as good a read as her books. I found it very interesting and was suprised at the candid things she shared and what she faced in her life. A great book!

In 1979 her writing exploded onto a barely tapped Christian fiction market. Her simple stories, based on the lives of early prairie settlers, opened the door for fiction to an audience who had not yet discovered the joys and the "take-away value" of a well-told story. With sales of her novels now exceeding eleven million copies, she has surpassed the label of "bestselling" and has earned the title of "best loved."
In Janette Oke: A Heart For the Prairie, readers will discover that Janette fits none of the celebrity stereotypes. The daughter of a Canadian prairie farmer, the wife of a warmhearted pastor and educator, the mother of four grown children, and a grandmother who delights in her grandchildren-she is an ordinary woman with an extraordinary talent.
Any reader of Janette Oke will be delighted with this "insider's view" of her life by her daughter, Laurel Oke Logan.

I really enjoyed reading about Janette Oke's family and her growing up years. This book really goes into the genealogy of her family, so if you're into that, you will really love reading it. Regardless, the book is well-written and kept me interested throughout. Laurel Oke Logan shares some very touching and even tragicly sad moments in their families' lives. If you've read Janette Oke's books for years, you should read this book.

A beautiful gift book. Janette turned herself over to God and asked him to guide her writing as he would have her do.
