I love books like little house on the prairie, grandma attic series, and some of the love finds you series but i was looking for more books like these but for young women 18-23 that are christian novels that are super clean (no edgy novels please)something with adventure, pioneers and a little romance any ideas would be great!

I loved the "Women of the West" series that Janette Oke wrote. They are each standalone books but all fit in the pioneer-type, adventure, and inevitably romantic genre. "A Gown of Spanish Lace" was my favorite :D
I grew up reading the Little house books and the Grandma's attic series over and over again and I loved these books as I got older (Well, I'm currently 21)

I have never read them but I've heard a lot of good things about Oke's "Love comes Softly" series. (and there are related series that follow this allowing lots of great reading!)

I have never been a fan of the Janette Oke books. Not because they aren't great stories. They really are. It's been a long time since I read one, and my perspective might be different now, but I remember being driven nuts by how she wrote, presumably, the way people talked then (or she thought they did) and the grammar was bad and the spelling and pronunciation was bad. It was intentional, to make it realistic, but it drove me crazy. Still, they are great stories and I might fell differently about them now. Another series that greeneyes22 might like to look into is Lorraine Snelling's "Blessings" series. It's about two Norwegian couples who come to America in the mid 1800's and settle in the Dakotas. There are six books in the first series, three in the second, and several more in the third. It follows the family through the original generation and into the marriages and children of their children. It's hugely popular and all of it is available on Kindle. The first book is a little sad, and she puts plenty of realism in it, showing how hard it was for those who first came to this country from Europe, but I think the entire series is addictive!
