"A Woman Named Damaris" did not have a solid plot, and was redundant. It's a decent read, but most of the pages were full of fluff and fillers. I have no idea what it's like, but Damaris' constant thinking that men are drunks started to get to me and at times made me angry. Predictable, as all of Oke's books are, and her endings come so quickly and without elaboration. I "sorta" recommend.

I just adored this book! I read the end over and over again! I believe this to be one of her best! I've read so many of Janette Oke's books but I love this one so much!

Format: Paperback
This book is about a girl named Damaris. She grew up in a home with an alcoholic and abusive father. She finally decides to run away. Damaris joins a wagon train heading west. When she finally reaches the end of the journey, she finds herself working for three people, all who are good to her. She boards with one of them, but she finds a true friend in Miss Dover, another of her employers, who helps her find what she has been searching for : her name in the Bible. With the search for her name, she finds something more, something that Damaris desperately needs : a relationship with God. Her faith helps her through many challenges, including her adoption of three orphan children. One of the things I love about this book is the connection to the Prairie Legacy series. (*Note* look at the name Lewis to find the connection!) Janette Oke fans will love this book. Even if you've never read them, you'll still love it! So read it as soon as you can get your hands on a copy!
