5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful story told by Mrs. Oke 9 janvier 2013

This is very well written. I loved every passing page. I read it so fast though and went right on to the next and read that one as fast. These are great books with a strong Biblical Salvation message and great story telling qualities. She is well versed on Canadian towns, cities, provinces and wildernesses. Her knowledge of the Canadian Indians is splendid and well worth the read. I love the characterization of Wynn and his new wife. I love the fact that there is not a whiff of sex or bad language. How refreshing to get away from the titillating nonsense of SO many books written today. They seem to be written for shock value and not with the true values and with the sense of a well-written fiction novel. I highly recommend these books....all six.

I am really enjoying this series and seeing how Elizabeth gets through her experiences. I am not sure if I could handle all that she needs to. This was a great read on relationships -- especially those girlfriend releationships -- it makes me realize how important my own girlfriend friendships are. I am looking forward to reading part three of this series in When Breaks The Dawn.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 "Pulling Together as a Team in the Wilderness" 29 juillet 2014
Par Plume45 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
In this 2nd book of the Christian series set in Canada, the story continues as Elizabeth prepares for a big wedding with Wynn--her Royal Mountie fiancé. Busy and excited her brother's family is surprised to learn that Wynn has been posted much earlier than planned, so the wedding will have to be rushed and on a modest scale. Both families meet; the service is concluded and the honeymooners take a few days off before heading to the distant wilderness in the North Country. Their first argument involves a pair of man's trousers and boots which Wynn wisely insists she wear--to successfully negotiate a dangerous mountain trail. This is one of the first lessons she must learn: to sacrifice her modesty and feminine vanity in the name of safety. Lessons learned with tears and prayer--trusting in God's benevolent judgment and in Wynn's experienced wisdom.

After arduous travel by barge and wagon, thrown in with uncouth river men and trappers, Elizabeth finally reaches a distant outpost called the Beaver River settlement--where she finds few white people. Crushed not to have a white woman with whom to bond she makes their cabin into a home. As a Mountie Wynn must serve several functions: arbiter of justice, doctor and quartermaster for medical and other supplies--even innkeeper for the sick or homeless. Frustrated by her lack of knowledge of the Indian tongue Elizabeth must communicate using gestures with a few native words scattered in. She offers tea, sewing lessons and eventually Bible studies in her cabin, but her dream is to establish a school for the Indian children. Many disasters befall the little settlement, all of which result in the community pulling together for their mutual survival. Will "Mrs. Sergeant" prove a true pioneer's wife, able to earn praise from her indispensable husband?

Oke's story is interspersed with many references to the Bible and Elizabeth's need to seek guidance and comfort through prayer--always trusting the Lord to a provide loving answers in His own time. Only once does she lose her temper but it is justified--to cure an embittered spinster of her selfishness. Although I enjoyed this sequel to WHEN CALLS THE HEART--watching Elizabeth as she matures--I have two mild criticisms with this story:

1) Wynn is too perfect a husband; he never makes a mistake in his judgment. The author stresses the concept that the man is the Head of the household and should be dutifully obeyed. How lucky Elizabeth is to realize that she has been granted a perfect specimen for her husband.

2) A more serious consideration is the blatant fact that a once proud and self-sufficient tribe is reduced to dependency on the White Man for tinned goods, medical skills and frontier justice. Their social structure includes no medicine man, chief or even Elders to dispense tribal justice. These Native Americans are depicted more like dependent children than the proud adults they once were. Otherwise an enjoyable read about a heroine we have come to love.

When Comes the Spring is the 2nd book in the Canadian West Series by Janette Oke. I loved this story! I found it more interesting than the first in the series, although I liked that story as well. The second book has so much more going on throughout it. I loved the beginning where Elizabeth learns to submit to her husband about wearing pants to climb the mountain. As a woman who does not wear pants, I felt her pain! But, her husband was right! She could not have climbed that mountain successfully in a skirt. Mostly, though, she learned to trust Wynn. He was only trying to protect her and that is a basic theme of the Bible. Protection comes when we obey authority. First, I loved that they trusted in God. I love the way the author helped Nimmie find Jesus and the Bible Studies. I am amazed at the hardships that this prim and proper lady from the East conquers. I felt for her! I lived on a farm and I know just how hard times can get if you don't have water. I experienced some of these hardships but not as difficult as Elizabeth had it. I'm in love with her "Mountie". What a dream man. His love for Elizabeth exemplifies God's love for the church. I thoroughly enjoyed Elizabeth's struggles to "talk" to the Indians through sign language and a word here and there. Her friendship with Nimmie, the English speaking Indian friend opened her heart to other people and their cultures. Excellent book and well-written as all of Oke's books are. Enjoy!
