I sort of liked the book "When Comes The Spring." It had a bit of adventure, if any at all. It's a quiet book mostly, a bit dull too.
My favorite character is Elizabeth Thatcher. She is the main character in the book. I think she's funny when it comes to hurting animals. Funny like over-reactive funny, not laugh out loud, joking funny.
I wouldn't recomend this book, but I wouldn't not recomend this book either. It's a type of book that you'd have to read for yourself and get your own opinion.

The book "When Comes The Spring" is an okay book. I would most likely give it a four on a scale of one to ten, ten being it's the best book ever.It's a book that has a tad of mystery, but very little if any at all. I would say it's a quiet book really, no real excitement.
My favorite character would have to be Elizabeth Thatcher, or Beth for short. Beth is the main character in the story. I like her best because she loves animals, and is funny when it comes to hurting animals. Well a little funny, funny like over-reactive funny.
I wouldn't exactly recomend this book, but I wouldn't not recomend this book either. You will understand when, and if, you read the book.

The first part of this book, in which Elizabeth and Wynn prepare for the wedding, actually get married, take their honeymoon, and travel to Wynn's station out in the wilderness, is all pretty good and interesting. Once Janette Oke gets Elizabeth settled out there, however, the book lost its appeal for me for two reasons. First, the author obviously relied quite a bit on "Mrs. Mike" to supply her with incidents. Second, whatever she couldn't take from "Mrs. Mike," she made up for with stereotypes and unbelievability. I recommend that you read "Mrs. Mike" instead of this book once you get to the point where Elizabeth and Wynn get settled in the wilderness.

"Superb!" Oct. 27 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Following their wedding Wynn and Elizabeth Delaney head north to Wynn's posting with the Royal North West Mounted Police in Beaver Creek. The change is not easy for Elizabeth, a school teacher from Toronto, but your heart will be warmed by her faith in God and her commitment to her husband event through the tough times. You will become entwined in her life as she steps out of her comfort zone to make friends with the Indians and show God's love to the people of the community. Janette Oke has done a suburb job of portraying history in a way that will have you virtually living it!

Wonderful story told by Mrs. Oke Jan. 8 2013
By L. Baker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is very well written. I loved every passing page. I read it so fast though and went right on to the next and read that one as fast. These are great books with a strong Biblical Salvation message and great story telling qualities. She is well versed on Canadian towns, cities, provinces and wildernesses. Her knowledge of the Canadian Indians is splendid and well worth the read. I love the characterization of Wynn and his new wife. I love the fact that there is not a whiff of sex or bad language. How refreshing to get away from the titillating nonsense of SO many books written today. They seem to be written for shock value and not with the true values and with the sense of a well-written fiction novel. I highly recommend these books....all six.

entertaining Aug. 11 2006
By ShelleyL - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am really enjoying this series and seeing how Elizabeth gets through her experiences. I am not sure if I could handle all that she needs to. This was a great read on relationships -- especially those girlfriend releationships -- it makes me realize how important my own girlfriend friendships are. I am looking forward to reading part three of this series in When Breaks The Dawn.

Canadian Frontier CONQUERED Oct. 23 2012
By Dawn Kurtz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
When Comes the Spring is the 2nd book in the Canadian West Series by Janette Oke. I loved this story! I found it more interesting than the first in the series, although I liked that story as well. The second book has so much more going on throughout it. I loved the beginning where Elizabeth learns to submit to her husband about wearing pants to climb the mountain. As a woman who does not wear pants, I felt her pain! But, her husband was right! She could not have climbed that mountain successfully in a skirt. Mostly, though, she learned to trust Wynn. He was only trying to protect her and that is a basic theme of the Bible. Protection comes when we obey authority. First, I loved that they trusted in God. I love the way the author helped Nimmie find Jesus and the Bible Studies. I am amazed at the hardships that this prim and proper lady from the East conquers. I felt for her! I lived on a farm and I know just how hard times can get if you don't have water. I experienced some of these hardships but not as difficult as Elizabeth had it. I'm in love with her "Mountie". What a dream man. His love for Elizabeth exemplifies God's love for the church. I thoroughly enjoyed Elizabeth's struggles to "talk" to the Indians through sign language and a word here and there. Her friendship with Nimmie, the English speaking Indian friend opened her heart to other people and their cultures. Excellent book and well-written as all of Oke's books are. Enjoy!

This second book of the Canadian west series really showed how Beth grew from educated miss to loving companion. Excellent.
