These books are great! I have read 6 out of this series and hope to start book 7 this weekend. Book 5 had me crying my eyes out when Ellie helped Nandry come to terms with Clarks leg. The way the Davis family looks to God for help in everyday living not just in crisis is very cool. I myself am somewhat like how Marty was when she first met Clark. Just seeing how they grow spiritually through the years and can always see something good no matter what. I wish I was that forgiving and understanding. These books have made me look at my own life and relize I have alot of spiritual growing to do and it also let me go into a world that the values and love of a family can get you through almost anything. I wish our fast paced society would stop and look at simple things as the Davis's did. I tell everyone I know that reads to pick up this series, it will always be a lifetime favorite of mine. Must have in your collection.

The "Love Comes Softly" series is a magnificent series that allows you to embark on both a amazing and uplifting story.
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 read this series about a year ago and I still talk about it! At first,it was was kind of hard for me to get into it because of the way the characters talked. After a while,it just grows on you and you don't even notice...that is how good the story is. This series is wonderful if you want to read a wonderful love story with great spiritual lessons. This series made me stop and think about what God has done for me and how I can thank Him through everyday little things. I am one of those people who if you are constantly preaching in my face I get nothing out of it,but this was great! Mrs.Oke knows how to deliver a wonderful message without "stepping on toes" if you know what I'm saying. Through this series you grow up with these characters and become so attached to them that when you finish you are almost sad! After I read this I started reading more of her series and they are just as great!!! I HIGHLY recommend this series and author!

This series has started me reading again. I never thought I would read three books in one week, but I did. I felt as if I was the major character in the story. In my mind I would visualize the farm or ranch. I could see the characters. The author does a terrific job in making the characters come alive. These books takes a person back to the pioneer days and how America became the America today. I couldn't put them down. (Although, I haven't read number 2 book because it is not in my church library.) I plan on reading it and all the other books by Janette Oke.

Four stars for the basic stories, but I must admit it was because I so loved the movies made based on the books that I was compelled to read the books. However, I did not get far into the books before realizing I couldn't stomach the hillbilly dialog! I am SO glad they didn't do this in the movies, but made the actors talk pretty normal, even for pioneers. Part of the charm in the movies was Marty teaching Missy to read and correcting her grammer and bringing so many books with her in the wagon, etc. The people in the book sound like they have no education at all and it was very hard to read, so hard that I gave up reading the books. But I cannot recommend the movies highly enough!

I love this series along with the movies. I read this entire series in 6 weeks while being a full time student. I highly recommend purchasing these books. There are great for all ages. My mom told me to read them years ago but I didn't listen. I am so glad that I finally read them because they are awesome. So definately read the whole series, along with the Season's of the Heart and Canadian Series. I read this fast also.
