I picked up this book on a whim as I entered the bookstore about 5 years ago. The cover is what drew me to it, but when I read the story, I was so drawn into it, that I read the book in a mere 2 days. Now that I have time to read, I've read it all over again, and I still love it! It is such an amazing story about a girl struggling with forming who she is and who she wants to become -- a coming of age story. In this book, you follow her through a rollercoaster of emotions that ultimately leaves you inspired to think about your own life. If you like this book, you will definitely LOVE the rest of the series. I know I did.

I loved this book! Virginia is a character I can most certainly relate to. Being a girl her age, I have experienced a similar journey. I've had problems with friends and jealousy, and I know, like Virginia learns, that everything happens just as it should in God's time.

Being a girl Virginia's age, this book has really spoken to me. I can really relate to Virginia. As I read the rest of the series, I felt that it was really speaking to me as well. I also enjoyed reading about Marty and Clark (the Love Comes Softly characters) again too. This book (and the series) is great for any age! I totally recamend it! 8 D

This book is about Virginia Simpson who is thirteen, her freind Jenny is a girl who puts alot of presure on Virginia. Virginia has to learn not to give in, but sometimes she does and she gets in trouble. It was realy good I read all four books. I loved it because she is my age and I can totally relate.

The Tender Years is a very good for kids to read but first they need to read the love saga series which is sooo much better though. These books really get you into the mind of how the pioneers lived.

I gave this book to my daughter and my niece. Both were going though trying times in school and always needing the question of "Why do I always have to be the good one?" answered. It helped a great deal. Janette Oke said everything that I wanted them to know.

I couldnt get very far in the book because there were so many different names and relationships being explained before any plot was established that it wasnt making sense. I generally like thus authors books but not this one
