The book is a great read for those of us who devoure books. I would also suggest this book to any young elementary 3,4,5, and 6 grade girl. The book is something that can be read in a day.

Very compelling and can't put down. Needs to have a few more books that follow the family. You want to find out what happens to the family.

Janette Oke is best known for her Love Comes Softly Series (which is good), but this book is my favorite of hers.

This book is so charming! Second to Janette Oke's; "Gown of Spanish Lace," this is my favorite prairie book.

I remember reading Janette Oke's books years ago and I loved them. This is book 3 in a series and I read it out of context. No matter, it still holds its own. If you get a chance to pick up a book by Oke, you will enjoy it.

It had all turned out to be so strange, so ironic. Angela Peterson's family had moved west because her mother had not been well and the doctor said the cooler, clear air of the region might be easier on her lungs. Her father sold the farm and loaded everything they could take with them in three wagons. They found new land and a new life, setting about to build another farm.

Her mother's health did improve at least for a while. Then a winter cold put her back in bed and it became clear she had only months to live. Angela was just fourteen at the time, and in those intervening months her mother tried to prepare her for the responsibility of raising three young siblings. But no one dreamed that something would happen to their father.

For Angela, now seventeen, and her older brother Thomas, the profound events that reshaped their family also changed their lives. Angela does her best to care for the children, but still wonders if she is providing everything they need like her mother did. And as the children grow, the questions and challenges intensify, at times even feel overwhelming. Preparing them for life seems to require something more.

She did not know a bigger challenge was yet to come.
