The second book in the Canadian West series by Janette Oke, Wynn and Elizabeth experience life in the north among Indians, trappers, and harsh winters. The book brings to life what life in the early 1900's Mountie world was like. The author keeps you on you wondering what will happen next in the lives of her characters. Life was hard in northern Canada. For a city girl to learn the ways of a frontierswoman was hard, but Elizabeth endured. You must read this series if you are interested in historical fiction that has a basis of God's love!

Book 2 in the series. Good story as we see how the couple gets involved in the lives of their neighbors.

This was book 2 in the series and you really need to read book one first, because book 2 starts right up where the first book leaves off. This story finds Elizabeth beginning her life with Wynn, but where they are sent by the North West Mounted Police leaves alot to be desired. Elizabeth must learn how to live simply where no other white women live and to learn to handle the long and cruel winters. Can their love for each other endure through the harsh conditions, the loneliness and the daily hardships of life?I enjoyed reading of Elizabeth's life, and really came to appreciate her new friend Mrs. McLain. When she comes to understand how all the Bible stories she has been reading are true, it was just a precious and well written moment. I always appreciate it when the author explains the gospel plan in her books. Looking forward to book 3.

This author has such a unique story telling ability. I always feel like I am there in the story watching it unfold. Just love her writing style. Very engrossing just being in the day to day story. Love this book and series. The love comes softly series is my favorite but this one is a very close second.

reaaly enjoy the authors work. I had a hard time putting the book one and now this book two down. Cannot wait to get the third book of the series. The book is very well written and the story flows very well. I had a hard time putting the book down and could not wait until I could start reading it again. This is a story line I will again.

The story seemed written like a journal. I kept hoping something exciting would happen. I did enjoy reading it though. Was not a can't put it down which is not bad once in awhile. I'm not sure if I want to pay for the next in the series

I loved this book, the ones before it and the ones after it. I couldn't put them down. They are great reading for any age as they are Bible based books.
