Overview

Beyond the Gathering Storm by Janette Oke, Marguerite Gavin

Two Love Stories in One From Bestselling Author Janette Oke!

Whether you've read one Janette Oke story, or you've read them all, Beyond the Gathering Storm is sure to touch your heart. Returning to her beloved Canadian West, Oke has written another novel of tenderness and romance in which lives of character and courage are tested in the wilds of an untamed land.

This time, though, there are two love stories instead of just one as she introduces Christine and Henry, adopted brother and sister who are about to leave home. Raised on the secluded frontier in the loving care of their adoptive parents, Elizabeth and Wynn, the two young adults set out on their own and soon face the challenge of their lives.

Henry, a Canadian Mountie like his father, struggles between the call of duty...and the call of his heart. Christine, meanwhile, attempts to make her own way in the city. There she meets a rich man's son and must choose between God's will and her own.

Will these two compassionate hearts find the love for which they yearn or are they at risk of being broken?

I enjoyed this book very much. However, since I've read every other book in the series I wasn't expecting so many loose ends. This book begins with the adult lives of Wynn and Elizabeth's adopted children. The book previous to this one left off with Henry coming to live with the couple. We have no details of Christine's arrival. We also do not know what happend to their beloved Husky Kip. We only read of a new family dog. This was disappointing because it is an otherwise wonderful series.

Beautiful moving story of how a young mountie lives with the heartache of telling a widow with a small child her husband has died before moving away. She becomes hardened and some years later moves to where he is. See how things change a little at a time with God's help.

Definitly deserves 5 stars. Once you're finished you will have to read the sequel (When Tomorrow Comes). Great Story, great ending, yet leads you directly into the next book!!

Wynn and Elizabeth Delaney's two adopted children are now grown, Henry serving as a Mountie, and Christine starting her adult life in the workforce. Both are forced to relocate miles away from the parents they love and the family life they miss. This book parallels the lives of these two young people. For Henry, the memory of an earlier encounter with a young widow haunts him day and night...until he runs into her again in a most unusual circumstance. The girl re-enters his life under an alias. In spite of her constantly ignoring him, Henry is consumed with protecting her and becoming a father figure to her 5 yr. old son, Danny. Christine, 18, is taking her first job and while living in one room at a boarding house receives an offer from her wealthy boss. He wants her to come live in his expensive, large home in exchange for cooking his dinners. She declines, but in the process meets her boss's son, Boyd. Boyd is a spoiled, wild, lazy, drinking, university student with a completely different set of values from Christine's. They eventually do become engaged, which holds the reader on pins and needles. This book deals with family issues of the day, apparently just before a great war is to start. It takes place in Canada, and seems to be set just before WWI. Family trust and values are stressed, along with the empty nest of Elizabeth and Wynn. Strengths of this book are the religious and family values carried on by both grown adopted children. I found it rather unusual for Oke to introduce for the first time, issues which deal with total control and spousal abuse, but she did so in a well-controlled way. Of extreme importance all through this book is family loyalty, family values and family devotion. Per Oke, this is another book which holds ones attention and cries for a sequel.
