Product Description

From the Back Cover

The Heartwarming Return to the Legacy of Marty and Clark Davis From the LOVE COMES SOFTLY series
Twenty years have passed since youngest daughter Belinda's story in Love Finds a Home. Marty and Clark's spiritual heritage has been lovingly passed on to their children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren. And now beloved granddaughter Virginia faces the test of her young life. Caught in that difficult period between childhood and adulthood, feeling that she doesn't really fit anywhere, Virginia struggles against what she considers to be unreasonable restrictions and expectations.
A lively new girl arrives at school, and Jenny seems to represent everything that Virginia is longing for--her looks, her daring, her alluring freedom from constraints. But then comes the day neither girl will ever forget.

"The Tender Years" was an excellent book! Being a teenager myself,I can relate to Oke's character ,Virginia. I loved the first books before "The Tender Years" and am looking foward to reading more of Janette Oke's continuing sagas. Her books are such wonderful Christian books and I enjoy them all!!!!!!!!!!

This is a very good book, and like all the others, this one was delightful. Pick up any one of her books, and you'll agree. Her books are appropriate for all ages, even the romances, which are nothing like the raunchy ones nowadays!!!!!

"The Tender Years" is a wonderful book. I read it this past fall, and absolutely loved it! I had already read the Love Comes Softly series and was wondering what had happened to everybody! When I heard Janette Oke was coming out with the Prairie Legacy books, I couldn't believe it! I was very surprised at how young Virginia was (13), but also very happy. I'm a teenager too, so I could relate to alot of things in the book. I loved the way she learned to trust God (as we all need to.) All I can really say is... READ IT!! Thank you, Janette Oke! Happy Reading!!

I enjoyed this book, easy read, tells of the need to accept Christ and the difference that can make to one's life. An enjoyable story, BUT many typos. The fault being question marks in the midd? le of a word. Such as Grand? mother. This made for difficult read? ing.

Rett is the main character in this story, along with Jenny. One is accused of theft, the other is an angry girl. And so, the story continues for the folks we all met in the Love books.
