Product Description

From the Back Cover

SPRING'S GENTLE PROMISE

I can't believe it. Grandpa and Uncle Charlie signed all the official papers and now the farm is mine--really and legally mine. Joshua Chadwick Jones they read, clear as can be. I couldn't be more thrilled. I mean, what other fella my age has a farm all his own, title clear and paid for? If the crop fetches a good price, I might even be able to buy one of them new Ford motorcars!

And then there's this other thing going on inside me. I've been feelin' a desire for a family of my own. I still don't know how they finagled it, but Grandpa and Uncle Charlie got two gals my age livin' at our house--Mary, our housekeeper and cook, and Matilda, the schoolteacher. I've always thought of the girls as friends, but something in my heart is changing a bit. Is one of them the gal God has in mind for me? --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
Out of all the 4 books in the Seasons of the heart Series by Janette Oke, I can guarantee that Spring's Gentle Promise holds the PROMISE of an awesome book. I have traveled along with Joshua Jones, the main character of the story, throughout his whole life. Through tragedy and disappointment to happiness and joy. In this last book Josh goes through some really hard times. From the love of his life falling for his best friend, to the death of his best friend. But with the bad comes the good and Josh finds himself a beautiful wife, a loving family and a future as a prosperous farmer. I guess it is like they always say, life is never boring for some because just when his dreams are developing Josh and his new family are struck with a devastating blow, a drought that nearly puts them on the streets. All they can do is trust in God to get them through. In conclusion, I would just like to say that you must read this book! Heck! Read the whole series, they are all fantastic books! Get ready to laugh and cry and pick up this heart warming adventure!

Spring's Gentle Promise. When I hear that phrase I immediatley think of an awesome book that I read. The book is the final book in a series of four books about a boy named Joshua Jones growing into a young man. I loved this book so much because I got to experience the many trials he goes through and the important decisions he makes throughout his life keep me in the can't-put-it-down-mode until the end of the story. Josh finally finds out his purpose in life and even gets a wife. However, when a huge drought comesto stay for years his dreams slip from his fingers. All he can do is to look for odd jobs, ways to sell his things, and pray. I also loved the authors very dexcriptive writing. It painted very vivid pictures in my mind of Josh's life. I loved to see how he courted his wife. I am obviously very romantic. So if you love excitement and romance, pick up this book and enjoy!

I was amazed by the simplicity of this book, yet truly warmed by the sincerity. Oke writes about everyday life without too much nonsense in her story. I enjoyed the characters from page one and could not let go of the book until I was finished. If there is a fifth book to Seasons of the Heart, I would buy it in an instant. Kudos to Janette Oke for capturing everyday life in its complexities and simplicities all at once.
