4.0 out of 5 stars A worthwhile read - very interesting 6 Oct 2001
By A Customer
This book is very good, a descriptive account of Janette Oke's life through the years. I enjoyed meeting her family and friends, and especially the anecdotes of tricks her siblings and she played on people. I could see where many of her ideas for books came from, some of the characters in her books she took straight out of her life. If you like Janette Oke books, you will like this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Inspiration 17 Dec 2000
By Donald L. Meseraull - Published on Amazon.com
I was thoroughly inspired by reading this book. It seemed to me to be a little slow developing at the beginning, due to a fairly complex family history. Even this should be interesting to people who like history from the perspective of people who lived it. It is well organized, and provides a good description of the environment that nurtured this God-inspired writer. Janette Oke's life experiences are so easy to identify with, and her dependence on God so well portrayed that it is an inspiration to me. It is also fascinating to learn how one of my favorite writers arrived at her mission in life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simply Told 29 Oct 2006
By Julie Norman - Published on Amazon.com
The story of Janette Oke's life told through snatches of stories. This book is packed with little stories and references to events in Janette's life. It reads almost as a family history or a remembrance book. Illustrated with a few pictures in the middle, it gives a good overview. The book is simply told, as most of her fictional books are. I only wish there had been more information about her as a writer.
