Reviews - What do customers think about When Comes the Spring (Canadian West #2)?
entertaining Aug 11, 2006
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.
Survival and the bitter cold May 7, 2004
I sort of liked the book "When Comes The Spring." It had a bit of adventure, if any at all. It's a quiet book mostly, a bit dull too. My favorite character is Elizabeth Thatcher. She is the main character in the book. I think she's funny when it comes to hurting animals. Funny like over-reactive funny, not laugh out loud, joking funny. I wouldn't recomend this book, but I wouldn't not recomend this book either. It's a type of book that you'd have to read for yourself and get your own opinion.
The Book of Suffering and Survival Apr 26, 2004
The book "When Comes The Spring" is an okay book. I would most likely give it a four on a scale of one to ten, ten being it's the best book ever.It's a book that has a tad of mystery, but very little if any at all. I would say it's a quiet book really, no real excitement. My favorite character would have to be Elizabeth Thatcher, or Beth for short. Beth is the main character in the story. I like her best because she loves animals, and is funny when it comes to hurting animals. Well a little funny, funny like over-reactive funny. I wouldn't exactly recomend this book, but I wouldn't not recomend this book either. You will understand when, and if, you read the book.
Not as good as the first book May 18, 2002
The first part of this book, in which Elizabeth and Wynn prepare for the wedding, actually get married, take their honeymoon, and travel to Wynn's station out in the wilderness, is all pretty good and interesting. Once Janette Oke gets Elizabeth settled out there, however, the book lost its appeal for me for two reasons. First, the author obviously relied quite a bit on "Mrs. Mike" to supply her with incidents. Second, whatever she couldn't take from "Mrs. Mike," she made up for with stereotypes and unbelievability. I recommend that you read "Mrs. Mike" instead of this book once you get to the point where Elizabeth and Wynn get settled in the wilderness.
Delightfull Jan 16, 2000
Another one of her grand old books. However I do believe the auto version of this book has about the sweetist voices I've have ever had the pleasure of listing to. Just wish the theme song to Dudly Doright wouldn't have entered my head everytime she mentioned Canadian Mounted Police. Hope you all do better, because it's well worth it.
