Product Details


Product Description

From Library Journal

Christian fiction powerhouse Oke (Another Homecoming, Bethany, 1997) gives a slight, familiar story some emotional depth in this novella about love and the mysterious plans of God. Widow Cynthia Longley loves her father dearly, but the widower has far too much time on his hands. To give him something to do other than hang around her house, Cynthia hatches a plot with bachelor P.C. Weston, a fellow church member. Their idea is to fix up Cynthia's father with P.C.'s mother. Anyone who can't see the outcome of this has never read a romance novel. However, Oke brings it to life with a charm and a gentle grace that are all her own. Recommended.

By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The Matchmakers is a wonderful book in classic Janette Oke style. It is short enough to finish in an evening, which you will want to do once you start reading! The last chapter will leave a smile on your face and satisfaction in your heart!

Janette Oke is back. This book is one of the sweetest, poignant stories I've read in a while. It shows the ironies of life in a good light. A story that brings back tender moments, and the surprise of love just happening. A must read! Two thumbs up!
