My grandma gave me the last book in this series and I had to read the others. It was a really good rainy-day read.

4.0 out of 5 stars The third book in the "Seasons of the Heart" series April 11 2009
By Valerie - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The long-awaited Graduation Day is fastly approaching for Josh and his friends. Soon they'll be done with school and they'll leave the little schoolhouse behind forever. Josh's friends all have big plans for their lives, many are going on to college, and his best friend Willie is headed to Bible College in preparation for mission work. But Josh still doesn't have an answer when people ask him what his plans are. He's considered several things, but hasn't felt God leading him towards anything in particular yet.

Graduation day comes and goes, and while his friends all set out to fulfill their plans and dreams, the still undecided and restless Josh is left behind in his hometown. Noticing that his Grandpa and Uncle Charlie aren't getting around as well as they used to, Josh decides to go home to the farm to help with the planting and harvesting for the year. Finally at peace, Josh feels this is where he should be while he waits for God's guidance for further plans in his life.

I don't want to say any more for fear of giving too much of the storyline away. Quite a few events take place in this book, it covers several years of Josh's life. A new family member is born, old friends come to visit (with some shocking news!), and Grandpa comes up with a crazy idea that could change everything at the farm. Through it all, Josh tries to trust God and seek His will for his life.

I would say this book is probably my favorite in the series. As Josh has matured, the books have as well. I really enjoyed it, and it seemed that I could really relate to Josh and some of his struggles. This series continues to be one that would be great for all ages!

I am so in love with Janette Oke's books. So hard to put down. This book, Winter is Not Forever, let's me experience how harsh some winters can be. And being from the South, I so enjoyed her description of the snow and cold. How cozy the kitchen was, warm and friendly with loved ones, coffee brewing on the stove. I just sat right down in a chair with them. I could see each face and personality in this story. But, most of all, how she taught that we must let go of things that hinder his work in us so that we can grow and love as we are loved. I love all of her books and you will to. Brew a cup of coffee first or cup of tea. Enjoy!

Janette Oak is one of my favorite authors. She truly has a gift in bringing the characters to life from the pages of her book. You will fall in love with these characters. This story was good but in parts was a little drawn out .
