4.0 out of 5 stars Best Oke book ever!, April 10 2000
By 
This review is from: A Gown of Spanish Lace (Paperback)
It's hard to believe this was Janette Oke's *first* story plot, but it remained unwritten (alive only in her head) for so many years! At first, this one is different from many other "Women of the West" books. Usually the first scene from a book in this series depicts a little girl, and we chronicle her life from childhood to womanhood. Not so with this one--after two chapters of character and setting introduction, this story starts right in on plot, and both main characters are adults from the beginning. I loved the little twists and turns as Ariana and Laramie got to know each other (under extremely unusual circumstances!), and I loved the surprise ending. Laramie is an especially vivid character who is easily understood and sympathized with. And of course, Ariana is next to perfect! Oke's light, easy writing style does the storyline perfect justice. This has got to be the finest installment of the series!

This review is from: A Gown of Spanish Lace (Paperback)
I read this book about two years ago and it was so well written and exciting that i can still remember every little detail that happened. Janette Oke is my favorite author and i have read many of her books. This book is a MUST READ! It is a touching story that i will never forget and you won't either.

This review is from: A Gown of Spanish Lace (Paperback)
At fisrt I didn't like A Gown of Spanish Lace because it kept switching back and fourth to different settings and it made me confused. As I kept reading it got more and more interesting. One night when I was reading,it made so interested that I couldn't stop reading. I would recommend this book to one of my friends that likes to read alot becauseit challenged me as I was reading. (also because a friend recommended it to me.)
