Reviews - What do customers think about Like Gold Refined (A Prairie Legacy, Book 4)?
Second Best Book of all the Prairie West & Love Comes Softly books! Jan 25, 2010
This book was by far one of my favorites. The only book with the Davis family I like better than this one would have to be Love Comes Softly, strictly because it lays the base for the next 3 generations. I really enjoyed it, but was sad to see ' a certain character ' die. I was also disappointed that we didn't get to meet one of the members of one of the families ( couldn't say which one, it would ruin the book, just skip to the last page if you're curious.. ) Over all, I give this book a *****/***** review!
When faced with very distressing issues.... Mar 31, 2009
Any reader will find some good in this remarkable, thought-provoking book. However, all readers who have faced the heart-rending issues in dealing with aging parents / grandparents should read this novel. Also, every reader who has experienced the anxiety, trials & tribulations in a child custody case should carefully peruse the pages of this novel. This is definitely a 5-star book!
Good ending! Nov 26, 2008
This was a great ending to this series. I really enjoyed the prairie series as a whole as well!
Full circle Aug 22, 2007
I fell in love with Clark and Marty in the traggic but sweet Love Comes Softly movie, so I had to order the series, eight books in all. The plot thickened with each child born to Marty and Clark. I connected with Marty the wife, Marty the mother, and Marty the grandmother. Then when Belinda [Marty's baby girl] gave her inheritance away and went back home without one thing to assist her aging Mom and Dad, I was appauled. I just finished Like Refined Gold, the last novel in the saga of Marty and Clark's family, The Prairie Legacy, starring Virginia, their granddaughter, Belinda's daughter. I love the rock solid faith portrayed in this inspirational fiction and how true to life Janette Oke portrays the hearts of wives, daughters, and grandmothers. You don't want to miss Marty's granddaughter, Virginia, Belinda's daughter, and her search for Mr. Right,and the toughest battle of "true motherhood". I treasure all twelve of these novels.
