It was a good book, I thought, but I had a hard time getting past the constant stuttering in the dialogue. EG: "I--I--wish"; or "but it--it--may be" and so on. It became too choppy for me and I began to subconciously focus on that in the dialogue instead of what the characters were saying.

"Too Long a Stranger" was a so-so book. I enjoyed "Roses For Mama," by Oke, much more. The plot seemed more relevant of today's family situations - I found that ironic. It seems Janette Oke didn't know if she wanted to focus on Sarah or Rebecca. It shifted main characters all of a sudden, with no hint of it. I couldn't feel for the characters - I don't think Oke developed them well, they had no dimension. It felt like Seth was thrown in the story to help the ending along. I didn't understand why Sarah would finally give into hiring help, when for more than 10 years she was against it - it didn't make sense. The ending came very fast and abruptly, without a sense of closure - an Epilogue would have been helpful. I do not recommend.

This is one of the best Janette Oke books I have read. However, as usual, everything was wrapped up nice and tidy in the last chapter. I often wonder if Ms. Oke is running out of paper as she writes the last chapters of her books. Or maybe her editor allots her only so many pages (303 in this case) and she has to rush the ending. I would like to see her write a book on what happens to the characters after conversion and reconciliation. Or maybe give the woman some more pages!

This is a wonderfully written Christian book! I love Janette Oke's book, and have just started reading them! I think they are very encouraging and wonderful! I think this is one of the best!

The characters in this book as well as the story line in itself seem very real, the book is very touching. From the mother in the story we learn strength and perserverance, and from the daughter we learn about humility as well as determination. Even a mother and daughter can come from very different viewpoints, and in this book, Janette Oke shows us that those differences are not insurmountable, and can actually make a relationship stronger.
