I am a big fan of Janette Oke's books. She did not disappoint me with this series of books. You can tell she was going through a difficult time in her life while writting these books. But it put even more life into them. I couldn't put any of them down. I would recomend these books to anyone. They will leave you wanting more after each one and bless your soul while you are reading them. The characters are real and friendly. They all have a wonderful love of God. Each character in the books goes through some kind of struggle in their lives, as we all do, but with the Lord's help and love they get through it even stronger than before.
The Last Book of this Series completes the story perfectly!!!!!!

I am so sorry to see this series end. It was a wonderful, heart-warming set of books with wonderful, everyday characters that will steal your heart. Inspirational and an enjoyable read!
Classic Oke! Very sweet story!
A classic enjoyable romance book.
In the dimness of the early morning I could see field after neighborhood field as I let my gaze wander around me. First there was ours I supposed I would always think of the farm as ours Grandpa's, Uncle Charlie's and mine, though in truth it really was just mine now. Guess that was one of the reasons I was whistling. Just yesterday Grandpa and Uncle Charlie had signed all the official papers to make the farm mine really and legally mine. Joshua Chadwick Jones they read, clear as could be. The full impact had yet to hit me. But I was excited. Really excited. I mean, what other fella my age had a farm his own, title clear and paid for?
I sobered down a bit. It was a big responsibility. I mean ,I was the one who had to make the farm "bring forth" now. Had to support Grandpa and Uncle Charlie and myself -.
And adding to the challenge is Josh's desire for a family of his own
Read once - excellent condition : - )
The last book in the series. This was throughout a good read but I wanted to shake the lead character, Josh, and tell him to wise up. It's an interesting look at how the depression and the dust bowl changed lives drastically.
