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.
