Into the Wild

Read Love Comes Softly (Love Comes Softly, #1) Online Free - Marty and Clem set out for the pioneer West full of hopes and dreams. They would stake a claim of their own on the new frontier, and build a home for themselves and their family.

But just after they'd arrived and Clem had chosen the perfect setting for their new home, an accident took his life...leaving Marty alone and pregnant. Then, on the day of his funeral, Clark Davis came along...and asked Marty to marry him!

Marty was infuriated -- but with no money, no shelter, and a baby on the way, what choice did she have? Besides, Clark said he only wanted her to be a mama to his baby girl, Missie. If Marty was still unhappy come spring, he would pay for her ticket back East.

Determined not to be a burden to Clark, and intending only to earn her keep. Marty threw herself into her new role of "Mama." But she had never been anyone's mama before, and she didn't even know how to keep a house! If only she could do right by this lonely man and his daughter just long enough to earn her train fare back home...

Now, Marty must learn wholeness and love through patience and faith

I love this entire series of books. Janette Oke is such a wonderful author. The characters have flaws, but they always, always try to do the right thing. The stories are sweet, real, and always teach a valuable lesson. If you're looking for a "feel good" Christian romance that doesn't contain any e...

Well, that ended up being better than I thought. Overall, I really enjoyed the story. It was very sweet and well-paced. I can't say I'm a huge fan of Oke's writing style. (Please nobody hit me.) It's very stripped down, and doesn't really delve much into the characters emotions. Very prosey. I pr...

I used to watch the Hallmark movie version of Oke’s bestselling book over and over again, and I was interested in reading the original book. However, as I came to find out, the movie version is vastly different and much better. The characters in Oke’s book appear to be very one-dimensional -- Mar...

Reviewed for THC Reviews I first read Love Comes Softly when I was only about 15 or 16 years old, and if memory serves, it was my very first romance novel. It seems I must have picked well, because not only is it an appropriate story for younger readers content-wise, but it has stood up to the tes...

This is such a Christian classic. The writer in me wonders why I love it so much, when Janette Oke writes an older style that breaks so many modern rules. But I truly do love this book. It’s like eating comfort food. Revisiting it now was a delight. I love the Biblical themes that Oke weaves thro...

If you dislike stories that tell instead of show, don't read this. If lots of "hick" accents annoy you, don't read this. If you want sappy romance, don't read this. If possible historical inaccuracies bother you, don't read this. If you prefer books where you live with the characters instead of watch...

Sial... Ok, belajar dr cerita HQ, chicklite, teenlite, dan sebangsanya, saia tidak terlalu berharap pada novel-novel romance. Bahkan, kalau disodorkan dua buah buku, satu komik Nubè, satu novel romance, tanpa pikir panjang saya akan memilih komik Nubè. Jadi, kalaupun memang ada novel romance di t...

This is among my top favorite books! Why? ~ Pioneer courage. A young woman goes West with her new husband, suffers his death, and goes on. Not in the modern way of most books(Pregnant widow goes to town! Gets job with local blacksmith! Teaches town that women can shoe horses too! Oh, please...), b...
