Bestselling author of Too Long a Stranger and Julia’s Last Hope, Janette Oke is loved for her inspirational novels. In Once upon a Summer, Oke weaves the tender tale of twelve-year-old Joshua who has been raised by his eighteen-year-old aunt and their grandparents. He has grown accustomed to their close-knit family, but that is all about to change when Joshua’s aunt considers marriage. Johnny Heller touchingly narrates the trials of faith this family must face.

    " This is another great series that I love to read! "

    " I did enjoy this book. The main themes were faith in God, family and community, finding fullfillment and joy in men's/women's roles, along with the love and value of hard work, and the beauty of the earth and what each season brings for us. Harvest time was Josh's favorite season. It reiterated for me that God allows some things to happen for our own growth, that we may blossom like the petunias that have been exposed to rain, sun, and bees for their own growth and good. Anyone who believes in God struggles at some time with the questions and anger that Josh struggles with when life brings hardship and it is inspiring to walk the journey with him. "

    " I have been reading a lot of novels lately that have women/young women as the main character, but the central character in this book is a 10 year old boy. Nice change of pace, very enjoyable to read, and a good message (but what other kind of message could there be with Janette Oke as the author?). I definitely recommend this book. "

    " Book on CD. Typical Janetter Oke. The story telling was okay, and I liked it better than some of her other books. At times I felt a bit spoon fed with the story and the lessons, and the characters could have been more developed, but overall a good clean read. "
