Basically this book begins when Marty (the main character of the first five books) looses her husband of just one year on a wagon train west. Left alone and by herself, Marty is approached by Clark who, just one day after her husband died, asks her to marry him. Marty is amazed that someone could be so insensitive but also realizes that she needs a place to stay until she can return to her family in the spring. Yet, Marty also needs to stay somewhere because she is going to have her first child in about seven monthes. Clark also needs a woman to watch his daughter who lost her mother just two months beforehand. An agreement is made between the two that Marty will be feed while she watches Clark's daughter, Missie (more formally Melissa).
The rest of the first book tells the story of Marty, coming from a non-christian family, learning about Christ and His message. This is a magnificent book with flawed characters and an interesting setting.
Books 2-8 are a continuation of Love Comes Softly and are quite unlike the usual sequel. Wheither you decide to embark on the adventure of these books or not, probably one thing you can learn is that love, forgiveness, and acceptance take time but they are certainly worth it.
I especially loved the first series of LOVE COMES SOFTLY. A story about a young couple traveling east with a wagon train and her husband is killed addidentally.
There is a man with the wagon train that lost his wife through death months before. He realizes he need someone to care for his small child. After helping bury the young woman's husband, he goes to her wagon and tells her about his problem of needing a mother for his young child and that it appears to him that she needs a man's help with her wagon. He says a minister would be coming through the next day and how they could get married and help each other.
She realizes she can not make it alone and agrees to the marriage.
He promises her that she will have her own living quarters and he will not be a problem to her.
She falls in love with his child immediately, but it takes the whole book before she realizes she has fallen in love with him.
Janette Oke always shows a strong family bond. A reader can learn and receive strength from her books and that is what makes her an excellent writer.
