4.0 out of 5 stars It was very good and spiritual. 27 Dec 1998
By A Customer
This book is so good! Once you get into the book, when Elizabeth and Wynn start their new life in the North it is easy to just get caught up in it and hard to put down! The Indian characters are very interesting. The author also focuses on God and Elizabeth's spiritualility. It is very good for the soul and the heart! Overall is was a very interesting and good book. I can't wait to read the next two books in the series!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Superb!" 27 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Following their wedding Wynn and Elizabeth Delaney head north to Wynn's posting with the Royal North West Mounted Police in Beaver Creek. The change is not easy for Elizabeth, a school teacher from Toronto, but your heart will be warmed by her faith in God and her commitment to her husband event through the tough times. You will become entwined in her life as she steps out of her comfort zone to make friends with the Indians and show God's love to the people of the community. Janette Oke has done a suburb job of portraying history in a way that will have you virtually living it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful story told by Mrs. Oke 9 Jan 2013
By L. Baker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is very well written. I loved every passing page. I read it so fast though and went right on to the next and read that one as fast. These are great books with a strong Biblical Salvation message and great story telling qualities. She is well versed on Canadian towns, cities, provinces and wildernesses. Her knowledge of the Canadian Indians is splendid and well worth the read. I love the characterization of Wynn and his new wife. I love the fact that there is not a whiff of sex or bad language. How refreshing to get away from the titillating nonsense of SO many books written today. They seem to be written for shock value and not with the true values and with the sense of a well-written fiction novel. I highly recommend these books....all six.

4.0 out of 5 stars entertaining 11 Aug 2006
By ShelleyL - Published on Amazon.com
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.
