Format: Paperback
Married and willing to follow her husband's dream, Missie says goodbye to her beloved family and home and sets out on the long journey West. There is no definite geographic setting named in the series, but they come on a "Big River" which seems to be the point of no return. Hardships, friendships, birth and death are a part of the wagon train trip. Expecting a baby, Missie learns she will be left at a town, alone, while Willie goes on to his beloved land. She thinks she cannot bear it. What awaits her is even more shocking. Her home? Surely this is not the beloved dream? Missie learns what real loneliness and isolation can feel like. However, she slowly realizes she has grown to love their mountains and cattle land, and that real love survives, friends and new family is gained and "home" can be found wherever there are people who depend on their faith, each other and their God. Ma and Pa have given the newlywed travelers some special verses in Isaiah, and this plays a big part in this third book of the series.

This book is just as good as any other Janette Oke book I've read. You get so involved in the novel that you will think about characters all throughout the day. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I will continue to read all in the series. I recomend all of Oke's books to any reader looking for a good romance.

This seires is really boring to me. There's hardly any climax. Nothing interesting at all.
But some people do like it, I have to emphasize this point. It's just not of my taste.

Great Series For All Ages July 13 2005
By Jen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I received book 1 and 2 (Love Comes Softly and Love's Enduring Promise) as a Christmas gift from my good friend. After reading them back to back, I decided to wait a few months before picking up the next book, Love's Long Journey. I was not dissapointed. I love Janette Oke's style of writing. It's simple, yet it draws you in to the story, making you feel like you are right there with the characters. I laugh out loud and I shed a few tears.

With Love's Long Journey, we find Missy and Willie heading west to start a new life. With faith, love and endurance, they make a new home for themselves. We hardly hear from Missy's parents, who are the main characters in books 1 and 2, but I didn't mind that at all because this story was not about them.

I believe this series is good for all ages: it's easy to read, clean, adventurous, happy, sad, and everything in between. I'm impatiently waiting for the next book, Love's Abiding Joy.

Movie confused me..........still liked it March 25 2006
By Cyndi Stahl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I started reading the books after i watched all 3 movies. The book was very different then the book. I cant say i was disappointed. I enjoyed reading this version. This book was about Missie's journey to the west, and what she went through to get there. How hard it must of been. I still recomend this book. Just dont go into it thinking it is like the movies.

The Adult Little House Moves Jan. 24 2008
By Heidi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read 3 books by Janette Oke over the last 2 weeks. They are really easy, escape literature. If you liked Little House On the Prairie when you were growing up these are the adult versions. I discovered them via the movies. I really like to read the book before I see the movie and when I saw an advertisement about these movies I felt I should read the books. I have enjoyed them quite a bit. The chapters are short so I can get one in on breaks between my work around the house.

Love's Long Journey has Missie going west with her husband to the untamed prairie. Will she ever get over her homesickness? Will they make it on the wagon train? Will the ranch prosper? This one is every bit as exciting as the 1st one.

These are Christian Literature. One of the things I enjoyed the most about them is that they really seem to reflect how hard life was then. The work was endless and the tools were hard to come by. These people really did have to do for themselves and make do the best they could.
