Format: Paperback
Belinda is featured in this seventh book of the series. Her brother, Dr. Luke has trained her well and she is working full time as his nurse. Her job takes a twist when a wealthy, elderly socialite suffers a stroke on the train and must be taken off and cared for in their small town. After the critical period, Belinda then becomes a private duty nurse in their small town.
Meanwhile, she has seen her 2 best friends and nieces Melissa and Amy Jo marry and move out west. Nursing has consumed so much of her time that she has hardly realized that life is passing and she does becomes aware of TWO possible suitors at the same, exact time - Jackson has returned as a Doctor and joins Luke's practice. Rand is an up and coming builder who has plans for a home for Belinda and himself. An offer to accompany the rich old woman to her home in Boston removes Belinda from the predicament of 2 suitors and no real love on her part.
Not only does she accompany, but she stays on at the Boston mansion of her employer. Never has she seen or even dreamed of such finery but she does learn to adjust. "Aunt Virgie" thinks of Belinda more as a daughter than a nurse which causes no small stir among the other household help. Matters are complicated even more when the old woman's grandson Peter comes to America for a visit. Will a friendship or romance develop between the two young people? Aunt Virginia hopes so, to keep her beloved Peter nearby.
Belinda travels abroad with her employer, and even though she is experiencing once in a lifetime events, she is empty and dissatisfied inside. Has she traded her peace of mind in a tiny prairie town for a life of luxury and discontentment?
I am excited to begin book eight in this series, Love Finds a Home.

The continuing saga of Clark and Marty finds Belinda, their youngest child, traveling to faraway Boston as a private nurse. Her new life is much different from the one in the West, but Belinda adapts and enjoys her new life. Janette Oke has written this series so well that you feel that you are there and a part of the Davis family. This book is as rewarding as the six before it. Happy Reading!

I think this was one of the very best in the series. I loved seeing Belinda all grown up and taking her place along her brother's side as his nurse. I felt for her as she struggled with so many situations and decisions in her life and can't wait to finish up with the next book.

Breathtaking continuation of a great series!! June 14 2008
By Stacie A. Whitty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I would recommend this book wholeheartedly. One word of advice though if you have decided to read the book after seeing the series on the Hallmark Channel,like I did, it might take a little bit to figure out where you are until you get a little further into it. Just keep reading you will come to a point in the book that will make the reading seem to match up where the series left off. I would suggest having book 8 and the Prairie Legacy series on hand because once you start reading you will not want to put the books down. If you are wondering if you should start with book 1 rather than starting with book 7 I would suggest that only because they are a great read and they grab your attention making you feel like you are actually there living each situation with the characters.

I listened to this book as an audiobook, so my experience may be a bit different than others. After having listened to the previous six books on tape as well, this one was about the same to me. Maybe it's the reader or maybe it's just that this series of books, while all different in their own ways, are also all very similar.

Maybe it's the reader or maybe it's just that this series of books, while all different in their own ways, are also all very similar.

This story was about Belinda. She is now a young lady and doing young lady things; meeting potential beaus and thinking of them as just friends, being a nurse for Luke, and clinging to her mama like Ellie did, thinking that Marty cannot live without her. Well, Belinda does end up breaking free of her small town, the beaus she does not want, and moving out east with a woman she is nursing.

Good story and I enjoyed hearing about the differences Belinda experiences from her small town life, which she has never met, to the big city life.

Wisdom provided in every J. Oke book. Truly inspirational. April 25 2014

With only one more book left to read in the series I have found that the "Love Comes Softly" series in book form far out performers it in movie form.
