I've read Too Long a Stranger, the Bluebird and the Sparrow, and a Gown of Spanish Lace. All involved great characters that focused on the character and the story plot. The good clean characters sell Janette Oke's books rather than love affairs or the like. There is usually a moral to her stories that is open at the end - which left me wanting more. Pick one up soon and don't let the reading level throw you off; I am 45 and enjoyed each and every story. Good reading.
