When her graduation day arrives, she walks to the podium as the class valedictorian to the proud grins of her grandparents, Marty and Clark Davis. College beckoned, and life seemed to be well in hand.

She thought she would feel different - like an adult, with an inner knowledge that she was on the edge of the nest, ready to try her own wings.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larisha | 2/16/2014

    " Delightful... I love how Janette weaves together into this book Damaris, from one of her earlier books :). As Virginia says so wonderfully in this book...'as we Trust God with our eternal souls, so we can trust HIM with our daily lives. God knows Best!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy Behrens | 2/6/2014

    " Another good book by Janette Oke. As I said in my previous review (The Tender Years by Janette Oke), I really enjoy the comfort and pleasure of reading a book by Janette Oke. I feel as if I am following the story of people I know. The author has such a manner of developing her characters that they seem to come to life. The reader finds herself (or himself) being truly interested in the happenings in the lives of the characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin (jason&robin) | 1/29/2014

    " These audiobooks are just sweet and enjoyable to listen to. I don't have to worry about playing them while the kids are in the car. Oke tells a great story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/28/2014

    " quick read. The character Virginia resonates (with me) well, though I found myself almost envious of her faith. She's very much like her grandfather in that regard. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Annalisa | 1/23/2014

    " Virginia now getting ready to graduate is faced with the worries of going away to college. She and Jamison have continued their relationship and write while he is away at school but perhaps college is changing him. Clara who becomes ill with pregnancy presents a strain at home that delays Virginia's decision to go to college. When Mr. Adamson dies a new elderly neighbour moves in and after a while her grandson Jonathan comes into the picture and Virginia's life. Jenny still a friend has gone off to college but is as wayward as ever though a terrible car accident for Jenny brings Jenn's father (Mr. Woods) a change in his life and an acceptance of God. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristy | 1/9/2014

    " This is really a great series; I especially like the part in this one where she meets Jonathan. :D "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie Danible | 1/2/2014

    " Nice start for the younger generation but better for teens to read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 12/27/2013

    " these books are really good... definitely not as good as the first series, Love Comes Softly, but I still really like them. I was so happy to find out that there was a "sequel series!" :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynnea | 11/12/2013

    " This book was MUCH better than the previous one. I was so disappointed in the first book of the series, I wasn't sure I would continue... I am glad I did. Now on to book #3! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dani | 11/10/2013

    " I know that this is classified as a Christian romance, but it didn't seem much like a romance to me. That isn't a bad thing, though. It reminded me a little of those Howard Fast family sagas I was fond of reading when I was in high school. Gentle action, yet still compelling. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 10/21/2013

    " Dealing with change and heartbreak, a wayward friend, and new understanding of God. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 9/18/2013

    " A little slow, in parts. All in all, pretty good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Grete | 4/11/2013

    " One of the better Oke novels. God isn't pasted into her books, as God is in much Christian fiction. Oke's is an appealing, organic Christianity. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gordon | 2/28/2013

    " I am looking for some Janette Oke Audio books that I am missing: Love Comes Softly Series books 4-8. As well as Canadian West Series book 4. Can you help? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele Minor | 11/24/2012

    " This is a good book about a young girl growing up and maturing in her faith and learning that sometimes God's plans aren't our own. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carla Still | 8/26/2012

    " Another quick read in this series following the growing years of Virginia. As she enters young adulthood, I could identify more with her. Her strength and maturity in relying on God makes for an inspiring story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kari | 7/24/2011

    " I cried in the beginning byt smiled in the end. Even though this book is fictions its a great story showing how God shuts one door and opens another! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caroline | 6/13/2011
