Format: Paperback
With the advent of trains, Marty and Clark finally take a vacation to visit Missie, Willie and their two little boys. Missie's beautiful stone home is already built and Willie's cattle business is doing well. The long awaited reunion is spoiled early in the trip by a horrible, unforeseen accident that threatens the family's faith, endurance and even a life. Without a doctor-- it seems a main character will die.
The two week vacation turns out very differently, but in the meantime, Clark has made a huge difference in the lives of the ranchhands and local town and area. One learns to love Cookie, Scottie and Lane in this book.
The book was a good look at the dynamics of early American Godly family life, and I am anxious to start book 5. Thank you Janette Oke.

This is my second favorite book in the Love Comes Softly Series. Janette Oke does a marvelous job of making you visualize all of the events in the story, I laughed, cried, and pictured myself right there in the thick of the West.
As usual, she did not disappoint.

These books by Janette Oke are all deserving of 5 stars. Very reminiscent of the Little House books, except they are Christian books and all have a message from Him.

Janette Oke is a great author. This was a very touching book. I cried when Clark lost his leg. I felt like it was my family. I couldn't wait to read the next book.

Long Awaited Reunion Dec 13 2005
By book lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was great. I was so happy to read Clark and Marty were going to visit Missie and Willie. What an ordeal the trip must have been. The visit, I could picture it in my head. Fabulous writing. I enjoyed this book as much as the first.

Recommened to anyone reading this series. I really hope this goes on film.

Great Book but nothing like the movie Dec 16 2006
By LDA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The person who only rated it one star is not being fair. The books were written long before the movies ever came out and they are nothing alike. Both are good in their own rights. I think the entire series is easy and delightful reading. I enjoy most of Janetter Oke's series. The Candian West is also very good.

Marty's Wardrobe July 3 2008
By Rebekah A. Lane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It had been a while since I read a book, so I decided to try reading Love's Abiding Joy since I had already read the first three books in the series. Well, I'm on chapter eight, and may decide to go ahead and finish it, but it's not been as good as I hoped. It begins with the author assuring the reader that Marty still feels as young at fourty-two as she did at thirty -- and Clark is still cute with grey hair. Trust Hollywood and a shallow American mind to make us concerned that the people we read about be young and good looking. It would seem to me that people back then would age sooner due to hard lives; but if they are interesting characters, who cares? Most of what I've read so far has to do with the outward. Marty's dresses. Marty's hat. What Marty eats. Marty staying neat and tidy . . . Not that I am uninterested in the way people lived in that time period, but in a Christian book -- or even a good secular book -- I do not find a character who is mostly concerned with outward things to be very inspiring.
