Twenty years have passed since youngest daughter Belinda’s story in Love Finds a Home. Marty and Clark’s spiritual heritage has been lovingly passed on to their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. And now beloved granddaughter Virginia faces the greatest test of her young life. Caught in that difficult period between childhood and adulthood, feeling that she really doesn’t fit anywhere, Virginia struggles against what she considers to be unreasonable restrictions and expectations. Her parents are too strict, her sister is too bossy, and God seems too far away.

Then a new girl arrives at school, a big-city girl ready to stir things up in the small prairie town. Jenny seems to represent everything that Virginia is longing for—her looks, her daring, and her alluring freedom from constraints. Breaking the rules and instigating gossip become special thrills for the girls. But then comes the day neither girl will ever forget.

This is a final series featuring the beloved characters from Love Comes Softly.

    " I found this to be a simple and good read. I thought it would be better for teenagers than adults, but if you want to read the rest of the series you should start here. "

    " I had never read any of her work. A friend gave me this book and I thought it was a good time to read and see if I would be interested in checking out anymore of Oke's books. It was a nice book with a nice story, but I think I would have gotten more out of it in my teens or early 20's. The story line is great for a young girl who is dealing with peer pressure, finding herself and realizing as much as we try to be friends with some people, it just isn't always meant to be. My friend gave me another book by her as well. I plan to read it to to see if the writing is any different. "
