Thanks for sharing — it blessed my heart to know there were others in my age group watching these movies. It is a good pioneer story. It's quite impressive, considering I am living in a tropical country which doesn't experience all 4 seasons. When will you ship my order? It was very sweet and well-paced. She heads home with her son to be near her parents and to return to teaching. The family doesn't labor on the Sabbath. There were a couple of other elements in Love Comes Softly that really drew me in.
I found this to be a nice palate-cleansing book as I read quite a bit of heavy material. He did not have a clue what being a Christian meant!. I enjoyed the short descriptions from each movie, too. Now, it seems like very mild romance. Anyway, I won't go into the book because the mass amounts of ratings but highly recommend this beautiful story.
That drove me crazy and instead of adding to the story, it took away from it. It still This is such a Christian classic. Clark lives his faith every single day. I can't say I'm a huge fan of Oke's writing style. Marty and Clark accept their situation and do their best not to make each other or little Missie any more miserable than they have to be.
The book is thinner than books I usually read, but it captures me just the same. I got interested in this book after seeing the hallmark hall of fame movie, They have done the first 8 books into movies and I loved them. For that reason alone, I am so grateful that I decided to re-read this book. Having enjoyed the Hallmark movies, I actually had good hopes for these books. The only catch the preacher leaves tomorrow they will have to married today just a few hours after she laid her husband to rest. Her search was one of an honest heart. Which is about a young boy who is trying to find himself with is unordinary family.
Sometimes it sneaks up on you, slowly and steadily, while you work toward common goals with someone else. It amazes me how hard-working and courageous these people were. The story was fine, and I liked the ending. He is the first she wants to know about the new state of her soul, expressed in a simple clasp of the hand and a look of wonder and joy. It was very sweet and well-paced. I decided to put it here because it makes the most sense character-wise since all the movies that follow this have Belinda in them. But I don't wear my religion quite as aggressively.
During these times, I wish that a little more background information had been given about Marty so that I could better understand her reluctance to be beholden to a man, her being suspicious about Clark's kindness, and her inability to perform some of the simplest household tasks. The author did a wonderful job of palpably expressing Marty's grief over the loss of her first husband. And in that one the skip the first half of the book. In many ways, this book and series are the background for rating all Christian fiction I read. But her resolution is tested when she falls in love with Drew Simpson, an attractive New York lawyer who expects a traditional wife and family back East. Visits from their families, including their grandchildren, are their delight.
Finally she was able to stop, all the confusion and anger drained from her. His father was Aaron, who died, making Marty a widow, who then married Clark. Anyway they eventually get him away from the family. Marty's story is not predictable. As part of a wagon train heading west across beautiful, desolate country, their trek begins.
Directors of the films included and. And the plot as a whole was very simplistic with day-to-day details that make the whole thing very cumbersome. If you want sappy romance, don't read this. We will have to wait and see! I was pleased that that relationship that developed in this book was not over-the-top romantic and the Christian aspects of the novel are gentle, not aggressive for any readers who may not be of the same faith. Not on life, or the West, or each other, or their faith. I wanted to hit myself over the head with the book a few times because of it.
That's what God ordained marriage for, whether feelings of 'love' are there or not. Marty was a great female lead, but she was also a character who had to slowly grow on me. Also it ended with Belinda getting married. This is much better than the movie. This story reminds me of the Little House books and was a beautiful story of how loss can be overcome and how much people depended on each other in the early days in the prairies.

The last two books came much later and focus on the children in the series rather than the main characters of the first four books. Travel back to simpler, more wholesome times with Love Comes Softly. Clark was always caring, thoughtful and understanding, especially after he found out that Marty was expecting. I had quite an experience with this book. It is something I would have never picked up on my own, so I have a fellow Book Club friend to thank for the recommendation.
