Summary

An excerpt from the book: "In the dimness of the early morning I could see field after neighborhood field as I let my gaze wander around me. First there was ours, I supposed I would always think of the farm as ours, Grandpa's, Uncle Charlie's, and mine, though in truth it really was just mine now. Guess that was one of the reasons I was whistling. Just yesterday Grandpa and Uncle Charlie had signed all the official papers to make the farm mine, really and legally mine. Joshua Chadwick Jones they read, clear as could be. The full impact had yet to hit me. But I was excited. Really excited. I mean, what other fella my age had a farm his own, title clear and paid for?"

"I sobered down a bit. It was a big responsibility. I mean, I was the one who had to make the farm bring forth now. Had to support Grandpa and Uncle Charlie and myself....And adding to the challenge was a desire for a family of my own..."

Heart warming

I really enjoyed this book! it was pretty unpredictable. The ending brought tears to my eyes, such a great life lesson to learn to trust the Lord and rejoice in Him even when things don't go acording to our plans

God is good

Beautiful story Jeanette. Thank you for thinking up these books of yours. I wasn't much for reading until I read one of your books. Love them all. Now I get to listen to them while I knit, crochet, garden and travel. God bless and keep you!

Sweet, as usual for Janette Oke!

I loved this series of 4 books. They are good Christian stories of family, love, & God’s goodness. The narrator is so good & doesn’t disappoint.

Love Oke's stories

I am pleased with all of Oke's books, and enjoy the narrator - except for the occasional vocal fry.
