In this third book in the Prairie Legacy Series, Virginia dreams that having a home of her own will surely satisfy the longings of her heart. But when the storms in her life test the depths of her heart and faith, where will she turn?

Through the years, Virginia Simpson had learned that Grandma Marty’s wisdom was right. When God allows something to be taken from you, He replaces it with something better. The long-awaited return of Jonathan and their renewed courtship, with a wedding soon to follow, are proof of God’s loving ways. But the inner strength that God has been forming in Virginia’s life through trials and disappointments is far from complete.

Married life isn’t quite what Virginia expected, and when an old friend presents a surprising choice for the couple, Virginia must decide from whom to draw her strength.

    " This may be my favorite Janette Oke book so far. At worst it's a close second. I actually liked it better than Loves Comes Softly and that whole series. I don't often reread books, but I am tempted with this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Candy Oosthuizen | 2/3/2011

    " Very predictable story about love and faith. Some would find it boring I guess. It sort of made me think about my faith. It's easy to give advice to people who are going through difficult times in their lives but what are you doing when bad things happen in yours? "
