With the advent of trains, Marty and Clark finally take a vacation to visit Missie, Willie and their two little boys. Missie's beautiful stone home is already built and Willie's cattle business is doing well. The long awaited reunion is spoiled early in the trip by a horrible, unforeseen accident that threatens the family's faith, endurance and even a life. Without a doctor-- it seems a main character will die.
The two week vacation turns out very differently, but in the meantime, Clark has made a huge difference in the lives of the ranchhands and local town and area. One learns to love Cookie, Scottie and Lane in this book.
The book was a good look at the dynamics of early American Godly family life, and I am anxious to start book 5. Thank you Janette Oke.

This is my second favorite book in the Love Comes Softly Series. Janette Oke does a marvelous job of making you visualize all of the events in the story, I laughed, cried, and pictured myself right there in the thick of the West.
As usual, she did not disappoint.
