I sometimes enjoy a good Christian romance novel, especially if it also happens to be historical. Janette oke is and always has been considered a very gifted author. I believe her books have won many awards, and rightly so. Her writings make me feel like I am actually there. Her characters are so well developed. I am a teacher, so I could be a bit biased, (smile) but the setting of out west, teaching in one of our great country's earliest schools, is a wide, open door for adventure and humor. This series is one I recommended to my teenage daughter as well, as she thoroughly enjoyed them, too! Canadian West is one wonderful series, and it does a fantastic job following our character.
Currently 5/5 Stars.

I enjoyed the Canadian West series. I think Janet Oak is a fine author and I would recommend her books to anyone who enjoys a good Christian love story.
This is book 1 of 4 and I loved all of them! Their is also a sequel Beyond the Gathering Storm that is just as good. Ms. Oke is a wonder. How she writes so many books and makes each one so special is beyond me.
