Product Description

From Library Journal

Oke (The Tender Years, LJ 9/1/97) continues the story of the grandchildren of the characters that appeared in her highly popular "Love Comes Softly" series. Virginia Simpson is about to graduate from high school and continue her education at college when a family crisis derails her plans. Virginia soon discovers that the rest of the world is moving on without her. Her best friend, Jenny, discovers the freedom of college, and Virginia's boyfriend begins to grow away from God and then away from Virginia. As usual for Oke, this is a tender and touching novel. However, it is also surprisingly slow and lacks enough plot to make it one of Oke's best. Of course, the author's many fans won't mind this one bit, so libraries will still need to purchase this lesser work of one of Christian fiction's great writers.

From the Back Cover

The Yearning Deep Inside Her--to Go Somewhere, Discover Something, Be a Part of the World About Her in a New Way--Would Not Go Away. But What Would Satisfy It?

In The Tender Years, Virginia Simpson managed to struggle through adolescence and was looking forward to stepping into adulthood. 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. And then circumstances began swirling around her, making her rethink her plans and reevaluate her priorities.

If She Only Knew What the Future Held? --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars It is better than The Tender Years!!!! Sept. 6 1998
By A Customer
I have read alot of series book and it seems that the sequels never live up to the first. Most authors could have put everything in one book. But not this one. I could not believe that this book was better than the first. It kept moving and there was not a slow part anywhere. Virginia was a bright and mature young girl in The Tender Years. She has blossomed into a bright mature young woman. She is learning that everything has a purpose and God will take care of everything.. I recommend this book highly. It was soo good now I cant wait until #3 comes out. I hope I dont have to wait tooo long......My neice and I are anxiously waiting.. WAY TO GO JANETTE OKE..You have created another masterpiece

4.0 out of 5 stars Virginia Simpson grows up... Feb. 1 2004
This second book in Prairie Legacy is a continuation of the life of Virginia, granddaughter of Clark and Marty and daughter of Belinda and Drew.... of the Love Comes Softly series. Virginia is becoming an adult and her plans for college, marriage and friendship with Jenny are all challenged in this book, another great one by Janette Oke. The end leaves one reaching for book 3 of this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great book Aug. 8 1999
By A Customer
I probably enjoyed this book more than the last one. This one really shows a young woman determined to do the right thing no matter what happens, but it also gives you the feeling that Virginia struggled with all of her decisions when life didn't seem to be working out the way she hoped. I can't wait to read the next one.

This book was one of Oke's best. It seems that often in Christian fiction the end is obvious. In this book you have no idea what will happen until it does. Virginia is faced with many situations and people but you don't know how she will react until you turn the page. GREAT BOOK!

5.0 out of 5 stars I can relate to this book Dec 5 1999
This book is about a girl who gets out of school and must decide what to do with her life. I will graduate next year and am faced with the same decision. I liked the way she made God the center of her life. This is a good Christian book that I would recommend to anyone!
