Review for Love Comes Softly
Author: Janette Oke
Date of Review: 09/30/03
Reviewed by: Kim

Reviewer Comments: Nineteen-year-old Marty Claridge crosses the prairie with her husband to pursue a new life out West. But tragedy claims his life and shatters her dreams. Marty is left with their wagon full of belongings, nowhere to live, a baby on the way, and no wagon train headed East before winter. Strangers pity the young pregnant widow and hold a funeral for her beloved. After the service—despite the poor timing and the fact they don’t know each other—Clark Davis proposes a marriage of convenience to Marty. She needs shelter and safety; he needs a mother for his little girl, Missie. Unable to survive on her own, Marty accepts Clark’s proposal assured by his promises to send her home in the spring.

Humor and poignancy characterize Marty and Clark’s adjustments to life together. Marty’s determination prevails despite her numerous misadventures while learning to care for Missie and manage a home on the prairie. Clark responds to her foibles with kindness. He also provides the balm for Marty’s heartache and turmoil. He models his faith by reading the Bible, taking his family to church, and treating Marty with tenderness and respect. Throughout the ensuing months, Marty comes to know both Clark and his God.

Their struggles and triumphs slowly bond Marty, Clark and Missie into a family. Winter turns to spring, and Marty must decide where home really is.

Janette Oke brought new life to Christian fiction in the seventies. Now, another generation of readers will welcome this reissue of Janette Oke’s 1979 inspirational classic. Future releases will continue the moving saga of the Davis family.
