This is my favorite Janette Oke series just for the sheer difference in writing style and plot.
I am a Christian, and I enjoy Janette Oke's books dearly. They are so wonderfully written--such wonderfully story lines, great details, great plots, and great faith in God.
I have read many of her novels, but I must say this one was my favorite. Something about this wonderful story made me just couldn't put it down! I found myself wanted to read it until I finished.
The story is wonderful, with Elizabeth's heart for teaching and her courage to moving to the west, and I love that is a love story at the same time. And her faith in God is so wonderful as well...
It's so neat cause when I read Janette's books, I don't just read a great story, but I learn something at the same time---great principles to apply to life - every time
If you want to read a great story (with no worries if younger readers want to read it) I truly recommend this story!
I loved it!!!!!!!! And you will too.
But, having just finished reading this for the second time, I find my tastes have changed considerable and I'm pickier than I used to be with what I read. I would give it 3.5 stars.
The beginning of the story starts out very slow. It's easy to see from very early in the first chapter that Elizabeth will be moving West. The first ten chapters or so summarize a great deal, making it extremely difficult to get immersed in the book. It reads more like a letter to a friend (I did this, and then this, and then this.)
About two-thirds of the way through the book it starts to read more like real time. There's more dialogue and more introspection on Elizabeth's part.
I was sorely disappointed that the romance barely sparked in any way until very, very late in the book. I would have loved to see more depth in Elizabeth's reflection of her feelings--something more than "I loved him, I hated him, I pined for him."
This book is a prime example telling versus showing. Much of the story is relayed in a "tell" way which really prevents the reader from feeling connected to the characters or a part of the story. I thought Janette Oke's collaboration with Davis Bunn (the Songs of Acadia Series) does a much better job of showing versus telling.
We enjoyed this movie very much. The scenery, the costuming, the details were wonderfully rich. The acting was superb. The music was appropriate and good. We liked everything about this movie from beginning to end. Except. One. Thing. I forgot that this book was the first in a series. Therefore, when we got to the very end, it ended. Abruptly. Without Closure. Ugh! My kids complained.
Will we watch the television series when it comes out? No, at least not unless it comes out on video someday. We don't have television access. We just watch selected movies.
Would I still recommend the movie? Yes, it's really good. I loved the interplay of the characters. Two story lines are being told at the same time.
