Secure in God's guidance, Virginia rushes into marriage with Jonathan. But right away, they forgo a honeymoon so that Jonathan can build their house on his horse ranch. Even after they move to the ranch, the amount of time Jonathan must spend training the horses dissatisfies Virginia. When her best friend abandons her child, Jonathan and Virginia open their arms and their hearts. In the process, Virginia learns that love shared is returned many times over. Virginia's childish tantrums are an annoying counterpoint to a simple story, but Oke fans will want it.

In the third book of the Prairie Legacy series, Virginia Simpson's courtship with an old beau is rekindled and the couple marries. The early days of marriage prove difficult. As Jonathan builds their home and starts his business, the newlyweds have little time for one another, and when Jonathan's grandmother moves in, Virginia mourns the lack of privacy. Things are further complicated when the couple takes in the child of an old friend who is an alcoholic. The little girl has many emotional problems, but Virginia and Jonathan come to love her as their own. When their own child is born, they consider themselves the parents of two daughters. Oke's fans will relish the directness and simplicity of the novel, and they will enjoy watching as sensitivity, intelligence, and faith gradually shape Virginia into a young woman who gives generously to others and overcomes the disappointments life brings her way.
