Overview

Her Character Has Been Shaped and Tempered by Both Adversity and Triumph...

If Virginia could have chosen to accept or discard all the changes that came her way, she gladly would have let most of them pass right by herself and her family. She loved her life--living on the farm with her beloved Jonathan and their children, not far from her parents and her grandparents. But a change that is tearing at her heart is the gradual but steady physical decline in Grandma Marty and Grandpa Clark. She cannot imagine their familiar farm home without their welcoming smiles and their words of wisdom that arise from of decades of life experiences and a solid faith in God.

And their lovely daughter Mindy, who has blessed their home ever since her mother left the tiny child with them, has been encouraged and guided to pray for that mother all these years. Was God answering that prayer, or was the worst nightmare any family could face now upon them?

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In Quiet Strength, Oke began the story of Virginia and Jonathan's married life. Picking up a few years later, Oke finds that the couple having been blessed with three healthy children and a foster daughter, Mindy, the child of Virginia's friend Jenny. As Virginia and Jonathan move through their daily lives, secure in their love for each other and in God's love for them, the family faces some difficult decisions. Jenny returns, gravely ill, and demands custody of Mindy. And, if that weren't enough, Marty and Clark Davis, Virginia's grandparents, are unable to live alone on the farm, and no one wants the responsibility of forcing them to move into town. Although Oke offers no real sense of difficulty for the couple, she wraps up this series in truly happily-ever-after form with a pleasant book fans will adore.

    wow!

    I couldn't put the book down because it was so heart-wrenching. Janette Oke seems to have a knack for pulling you into the story -- through the good and the bad. The story is wonderfully written. I would highly recommend this book to anyone, even if they do not believe in the Christian faith, because this book tells the story in such a way that anyone would enjoy it.

    Oke is still the best!

    Oke is at her best again with this book continuing the Prairie series. The book is full of all the charm of days gone by, that all Oke's book has. The series just gets better. I sure hope there is another book that follows.
