Summary

Summary

Elizabeth Thatcher had set out from Toronto for Calgary to teach pioneer children in a country school. But meeting Wynn Delaney changed all that. After their wedding, the couple headed north to a remote Indian village where Wynn, a member of the Royal North West Mounted Police, had been posted. Now they have survived a harsh first year in the far Northwest. Elizabeth and Wynn face new challenges, make new friends, start a new school and are presented with a new posting. Will their love for each other, hope for the future, and their faith in God carry them through a crushing disappointment?


Author Notes

Janette Oke (pronounced "oak") was born in Champion, Alberta, Canada, during the depression years. She graduated from Mountain View Bible College in Didsbury, Alberta where she met her husband, Edward. She and Edward married in 1957 and went on to serve churches in Calgary and Edmonton, Canada, and Indiana.

Oke published her first book, Love Comes Softly, in 1979. The book experienced immediate success because works of fiction were a virtually unknown genre in the Christian publishing industry. Oke has gone on to publish some 36 romance novels, earning her the 1992 President's Award from the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association. She is the author of the "Love Comes Softly" and the "Prairie Legacy" series of books.

Oke enjoys a large reading audience primarily comprised of teenagers, homemakers and working women. She recently started writing for young children.
