Reviews - What do customers think about A Searching Heart (A Prairie Legacy, Book 2)?

Excellent  Mar 16, 2006
I loved the book could not put it down. I was pleased that the author decided to take this family forward.
Janette Oke  Mar 1, 2006
I have read many Janette Oke books over the last 4 years. I find that though they have interesting plots and characters the writing doesn't seem to bring the full potential out of the story. My own personal taste leans towards very real to life stories. I don't always find that in Janet Oke's books. I find that they are too warm and fuzzy for me. If you like those kind of stories or just want a book you don't really have to concentrate on I would recommend Janet Oke. If not I would suggest someone like Torey Hayden or Francine Rivers.
GREAT READ  Oct 24, 2005
I was so glad to find that in the end of this book. Virgina finds love. I always think of this book when it rains.
Virginia Simpson grows up...  Feb 2, 2004
This second book in Prairie Legacy is a continuation of the life of Virginia, granddaughter of Clark and Marty and daughter of Belinda and Drew.... of the Love Comes Softly series. Virginia is becoming an adult and her plans for college, marriage and friendship with Jenny are all challenged in this book, another great one by Janette Oke. The end leaves one reaching for book 3 of this series.
A great book!  Dec 15, 2001
I highly recommend this book. It is really wonderful!
