Personally, I don't care for the way Janette Oke used the first-person style of writing, with a man as her main character. Her man just doesn't seem like a real man, mainly because he acts and thinks along the same lines as Janette's women do in her other books. Overall, it was a mistake for her to use a guy to tell the story- I think the books would have been vastly better if Janette had used a girl's perspective.
Aside from that complaint-
This story begins with the childhood of the "narrator", and goes through the boy's growing-up years on the farm. Everything is peaceful and happy. Little incidents occur here and there- his grandfather comes to live with them, he gets his first dog, etc. Finally, he becomes a man. One night he overhears the men downstairs discussing the fact that he needs to get married. He decides that yes, he should get married, so bang! he goes out and does it. Then the books tell about his married life (I liked his wife, by the way.) During his married life they go through the Depression and he winds up on a road crew far from home. All of a sudden, at the very end, everything is resolved and he gets to go home.
Generally this story is pretty good, but I've read many books by Janette Oke that are much better. Like I said, I think what messed up this series was trying to use the guy's perspective. It just isn't quite right.

I Enjoyed reading about Josh as he grew from boy to man and all the joys n sorrows to follow his journey. Makes one reflect on what we have now vs what they had then.

One of my favorites growing up. Nov. 30 2005
By Jeffrey Lowers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Originally my mom introduced me to this series because she thought I would enjoy it because it was from a guys perspective. Well she was right. I cant even count how many times I read through each of the books. I could always imagine being right there with him as he told his story. Eventually I was given this book collecting all four novels and again read through it over and over again. This being the only Janette Oke series I have read I cant really base it off of the other ones. But for me it was a great way to spend a rainy day or just any other time I felt like picking up a book.

I am an avid fan of Janette Oke, and have read every thing she has published. This is indeed a wonderful series, with descriptive scenes and true romance. If you haven't tried this one--give it a chance-it is a beautiful story.

A friend introduced me to this series by Janette Oke, telling me if I enjoyed Little House on the Prairie I would like this Series - was she ever right!!! This was wonderful, even better than Little House!!! I truly appreciate the inspiration that comes across in these books. If you enjoyed this you will also like Jan Karon's - Mitford Series & Marjorie Holmes: Two From Galilee, Three From Galilee & The Messiah.

By L. Carol - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This series of love stories is not just that. There a lot of love but there is also some action and a real story line. You will laugh and cry and smile a lot. If you like a books with romance but no foul language and words of sexual exploit then this is the kind of book for you. Janette Oke is a great author of books from the early years. This is not just one book but 4 books in one. So if you like to read love stories please purchase this book.

Great for young and old Dec 29 2012
By JaclynB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a great collection of books! It follows a young boy, which is great since most books are about girls, through all of his growing up years and then into adulthood. It is very relatable to anyone. I first read these books when I was 12 and loved them, and now 15 years later loved it all over again. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. It is also a good deal since you get 4 books (around 700 pages) for such a great price.
