This is my fourth or fifth read/listen to this series (over the last 30ish years)! I just adore these books from Janette Oke and have done since my teens. This is a great introduction to Elizabeth and how she adapts to this new life!

The only thing enjoyable about this book was the narration, I kept waiting for the moment Jake thinks he will be blamed for the banks missing money to see what happened but it never came- I must have missed that bit?? Can't be bothered to see what happens in the next book! Which is disappointing as I really enjoy the narrator.

When Cimarron ranch patriarch Chance Boden is caught in an avalanche, the quick actions of hired hand Heath Kincaid save him. Badly injured, Chance demands that his will be read and its conditions be enforced immediately. Without anyone else to serve as a witness, Heath is pressed into reading the will. If Justin, Sadie, and Cole Boden don't live and work at home for the entire year, the ranch will go to their low-down cousin, Mike.

I have read a few of Mary Conneally's books now. Wasn't sure if I would like the book as it started but once it got going I found it enjoyable, a little bit of tension along with humour , the kind of book I love to listen too!

Assuming the Lord wants her to practice medicine in a remote African outpost, Astrid Bjorklund enrolls in a missionary training school. She prays her former sweetheart will one day understand. But when a family crisis calls her home, Astrid hears of a deadly measles outbreak on a nearby Indian reservation. Feeling inexplicably constrained to help, she wonders if God might be leading her to a “mission field” that’s much closer than she imagined.
