Item description for A Woman Named Damaris (Women of the West #4) by Janette Oke...

Will she ever discover the story behind her unusual name?

Fifteen-year-old Damaris can no longer stay on her family's farm and endure her father's drunken rages. With the help of her heartbroken mother, Damaris makes her escape, taking along two family treasures: her grandmother's lacy golden brooch and her grandfather's watch.

These items and her name are the only legacy she has from her past. Her mother once told her that "Damaris" came from the Bible and had a special meaning. But growing up without ever seeing a Bible, Damaris doesn't know what that meaning is.

Far from home and feeling so alone, she wonders if the Bible can help her find out who she is and what the future might hold for her.

Publishers Description
Damaris has escaped her father's drunken abuse, but can't seem to escape her loneliness. Is her biblical name hold the key to her future?

Reviews - What do customers think about A Woman Named Damaris (Women of the West #4)?

Could not put it down!!!  Dec 31, 2009
I really enjoyed reading this book. It sat in a closet in my mother's house, and everytime I come to visit I start to read it, but soon forget about it as my visits are never long enough. This time when I came home for the holidays I decided I was going to read it, and once I really started, I could not put it down. I enjpyed the story line very much. I felt as if I was right there in the story with her. I only wish that it didn't seem to rush the ending. It left me wanting a sequel. I want to know what happens with their new family and what the mother said in her letter back to Damaris. If there is a sequel and I just don't know about it, someone fill me in.
heart wrenching  Sep 20, 2007
I can't beleive how this story touched my heart, it was out of this world, Oke did it again
OOOOOhhhhh, SO GOOD  May 14, 2007
I loved this book! After reading the Prairie Legacy series and realizing that the Damaris that shows up there is the one and the same, I just couldn't rest until I got this book and got her "back story". Well, I was not disappointed. Yet another triumph for Mrs. Oke!
Easy and Enjoyable Read  Mar 30, 2007
If you like Christian Romance novels, you will probably like this book. I actually didn't want to like this book, but as I read it, I just couldn't help myself. It was both enjoyable and interesting. As a teenager Damaris escapes an abusive alcoholic father and travels west with a wagon train. After an exhausting trip, she finally is able to settle in a small town. She finds several part time jobs and even a couple of good friends.

After she establishes a routine in her new life, the romance aspect of the novel is introduced. I found it to be a bit boring and predictable, but I don't think that the romance is supposed to be the main focus. I think Damaris' struggle to overcome her abusive past is the main focus, with the Bible playing a pivotal role in both the novel and Damaris' struggle to overcome. Towards the end of the novel, the story manages to focus on Christ and forgiveness without being, for the most part, too preachy. Overall, this novel is a quick, easy read which won't disappoint readers fond of this genre.
