Love Comes Softly

by Janette Oke

For our older young ladies, we are offering the Janette Oke Love Comes Softly series. In the first book, Love Comes Softly, the story is set in the harsh reality of homesteading. A young widow is forced into a marriage of convenience, but finds salvation and love and the sovereignty of God over her life. While there is danger in indiscriminately allowing our daughters to read romances, I have to admit that I’m a bit of a romantic myself and my thinking echoes that of Agur, the author of Proverbs 30:18-20...It is too wonderful to contemplate the beauty and wonder of the way of a man with a maid. With that in mind, I wanted to find books that celebrate romance without trivializing it. This series of books does exactly that. These aren’t love stories in the traditional sense. Rather, they show, through a historical fictional setting (westward movement, homesteading, etc.) that love involves sacrifice, submission, and faith. The Christian women portrayed in this series struggle with the disappointment of shattered dreams (involving the harsh realities of prairie life) and the beauty of the gospel walked out as they submit their lives, dreams, and future to God. Heart-changing truths are masterfully woven into these stories. You won’t find love scenes with kissing and flirting. You will find young women of faith being tested in the fires of life, and taking steps of faith to honor the men God has placed in their lives - and reaping untold blessing as a result.
