I was looking through some of my books and came across my favorite ‘teen’ author: Janette Oke. The Love Comes Softly series is set during the pioneer days. Fifteen years ago I found myself reading through the books in a couple of months and starting it all over again. If you haven’t met Marty, I think you are missing out. She is a strong, courageous woman who started out in life with great pain, and as the years went by…well, I wouldn’t want to spoil it for you if you haven’t read her series yet. The series is delightful, and very good for young teens, as well as women of all ages. Marty’s influence towards her trust in God is what kept bringing me to read her series again and again.
