    Awesome story

    Loved this! From the perspective of a sweet boy, this book told the story of strong family bonds that made the hardships of every day old-time farm life easier, where God was first, morality and responsibilities were expected, and "community" was how you survived. Funny, sad, romantic...and faith throughout! Review by CherishD

    Kind of boring

    I have read many books by this author and have enjoyed all of them. This one was somewhat boring. It was a nice story but I m glad it was free.

    entertaining

    A true Janette Oke book. My only complaint is the use of what some think of is the vernacular of the times.

    Another Winner

    I really enjoyed this book told by a sweet, curious
    boy who has had more than a fair share of heartbreak in his young life. Josh figures it might be easier to let his heart harden and blame God for all that goes wrong in life. But through the love of family and a wonderful new "mentor" in town, he learns a better way. Faith in God works miracles

    The characters are all wonderful. I especially enjoyed Gramps and the uncomplicated, unselfish love he shares with everyone who crosses his life.

    Another great book.

    Janette Oke is one of my favorite authors. There is nothing she has written that I don't love. This is another great one.

    This is the first book that I have read by this author and it is

    This is the first book that I have read by this author and it is truly wonderful! It takes you back to when times may have been harder, but they seemed so much less complicated. The characters are so closely knit and it warmed my heart to actually feel their love for one another page-by-page. Just the right amount of laughter and tears. A terrific read from start to finish!

    Great book ---Highly recommend jmm44

    Sure it's a Christian story --but it NEVER gets preachy and has a great story line of an early farming community in maybe the late 1800's! You'll really like it!!!"
