Amazing Books Mar 14, 2007
I love this series along with the movies. I read this entire series in 6 weeks while being a full time student. I highly recommend purchasing these books. There are great for all ages. My mom told me to read them years ago but I didn't listen. I am so glad that I finally read them because they are awesome. So definately read the whole series, along with the Season's of the Heart and Canadian Series. I read this fast also.

Wonderful Series,Interesting,Fun AND Edifying Feb 6, 2007
I saw the movie "Love Comes Softly" before I knew there were books. I prefer the film over the book because of the interaction between Clark's daughter Missie,and Marty is hilarious,as well as touching,where in the book,Missie is just an infant when Marty and Clark get together. One case where a film is better than the book. I did enjoy the whole series of books,however. They are wholesome,exciting and edifying,which I cannot say for the "Amish-Themed" books by Beverely Lewis,which seems to deliberately portray the Amish in a very bad light.Too much focus on negative characters in her books. Jannette Oke's books will uplift the reader.
I read the best book EVER Jan 23, 2007
I read this book in three days. It was so good, i could not put it down. This book shows the trials and problems that the pioneer women had to go through just to start over. It also taught me that love isn't just fireworks and butterflies, sometimes you can't even tell when it's there.
