Book Description

Nov. 1 2002
If Virginia could have chosen to accept or discard all the changes that came her way, she gladly would have let most of them pass right by. She loves her life on the farm with her husband and children, not far from her parents and her grandparents, but some of her family's declining health is tearing at her heart. And their lovely daughter Mindy, who has blessed their home ever since her mother left the tiny child with them, has been encouraged and guided to pray for that mother all these years. Is God answering that prayer, or is the worst nightmare any family could face now upon them? Virginia is not sure she has the strength to truly become like gold refined.

Product Description

From Amazon

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.

From Library Journal

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.

I enjoy reading all Janette Oke's books. They are so good for the soul. It makes me feel just good Inside. She doesn't have a problem putting God in and for today's world it's a must.

Her books gives us hope, we fall in Love with the characters and we just want to continue to read and never stop.

This is a must for people who need hope. I've finished reading this series and started another one.

Bravo Janette ! Thanks

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Companion to the Series May 24 2003
By Brandi
Many fans of Janette Oke have asked her to bring back Clark and Marty Davis and she does so in this series. This series is about their granddaughter Virginia, Belinda's daughter.

Virginia lives on a farm with her husband, Jonathan, and their children. Jonathan works with his brother breeding and raising horses. Lots of changes happen for Virginia in a few short years.
Their daughter, Mindy, was left with them by her mother when she was very young. Mindy knows about her "real" mother because she still has some memories of her. But since she has lived with Virginia and Jonathan she's called them mother and father because they are the only real family she's known.

Mindy hopes her mother will soon come to Christ. She prays for her as often as possible.

Mindy's mother comes for a visit and requests something that Jonathan and Virginia won't agree to.
I really liked this book! I like the Love Comes Softly series better so far but maybe I need to finish this series before I compare them. But I do suggest this series, it does a great job of continuing the story of the Davis Family.

5.0 out of 5 stars CHERISH THIS BOOK!! Sept. 15 2001
If I could rate this book higher I would!! Janette Oke has long been a favorite author of mine. I have read most all of her books with her "Love Comes Softly" series my all-time favorite. I was thrilled to see her begin a new series with the granddaughter of Clark and Marty. But when I read the first book several years ago, I was less than enthused. Recently I saw this had become "The Praire Legacy" series, so I re-read Book 1 and continued with the series. Once again, these books are heartwarming and should be cherished forever. In "Like Gold Refined" we see Virginia as a young wife and mother coping with life changes ... not always easy. Along with the ups and downs of everyday life comes a bitter and hard-fought custody battle over Mindy, the daughter of Virginia's childhood friend Jenny. Mindy has lived with Virginia and Jonathon since she was a toddler when Jenny leaves her with the young couple. I was gripped by the story and was inspired not only by Virginia's faith through these circumstances but moreso with little Mindy's strong faith to bring her wayward Mama Jenny to the Lord. I experienced so many emotions, from laughing,crying, comfort and anguish. I rejoiced at the conclusion. It is my hope that Janette Oke will continue on with Mindy's story (possibly a new series of books). Thank you for blessing our lives with the story of Clark and Marty and their many offspring.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Read April 30 2001
As soon as I started to read this book I couldn't put it down. It was wonderful. It was a bit sad at times though especially as you get to the end. I also recomend reading the first three in this series if you haven't read them yet.
