My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8

Number of pages: 329

My overall opinion: Janette Oke was one of my favorite authors many years ago when I first started reading Christian romance, and she has remained an author whose books I enjoy. So when the opportunity to review this one came up, I jumped at it! While Goodreads categorizes this book as 7th in the Canadian West series (and I copied that), it could be read as a stand-alone and it could serve as a lovely beginning to a new series. That being said, I enjoyed seeing (or at least hearing about) characters from some of Janette’s earlier series. The end leaves it open for a sequel, most certainly! The story in this particular book is almost predictable, but a few surprises make sure that it’s not quite. A good read! Contrary to what you may think, it’s not primarily a romance, though it has some romance within. It’s easy to enjoy. Heartwarming!
