Virginia is completely overwhelmed with the circumstances in her life. Losses loom on the horizon: elderly grandparents who can no longer stay on the family farm; Slate, who longs to leave for a home of his own; her brother Danny and his wife who leave for Kenya; and Mindy, who Virginia has raised as her own daughter but may be torn away from the ones she loves by a cold-hearted birth mother.
"That's how life is", Virginia tells Mindy. "Things just keep being... different". Virginia has always dreaded and fought change. Now, can she embrace it?
In this fourth volume of the Prairie Legacy series, best-selling author Janette Oke gently opens a window into a short period of time in the life of a close-knit family who are trying to find their way through bewildering times. In her own quiet-paced, inimitable style, she examines the role that change plays in our lives, and how we are shaped--or broken--because of it. Long-time fans of this inspirational author will find no big shocks or surprises here. Just vintage Oke. --Cindy Crosby --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
In Quiet Strength, Oke began the story of Virginia and Jonathan's married life. Picking up a few years later, Oke finds that the couple having been blessed with three healthy children and a foster daughter, Mindy, the child of Virginia's friend Jenny. As Virginia and Jonathan move through their daily lives, secure in their love for each other and in God's love for them, the family faces some difficult decisions. Jenny returns, gravely ill, and demands custody of Mindy. And, if that weren't enough, Marty and Clark Davis, Virginia's grandparents, are unable to live alone on the farm, and no one wants the responsibility of forcing them to move into town. Although Oke offers no real sense of difficulty for the couple, she wraps up this series in truly happily-ever-after form with a pleasant book fans will adore.
