Summary

In this book, the third in the Prairie Legacy series, Virginia dreams that having a home of her own will surely satisfy the longings of her heart.

Through the years, Virginia Simpson had learned that Grandma Marty's wisdom was right. When God allows something to be taken from you, He replaces it with something better. The long-awaited return of Jonathan and their renewed courtship, with a wedding soon to follow, are proof of God's loving ways. But the inner strength that God has been forming in Virginia's life through trials and disappointments is far from complete.

Critic reviews

"Oke's fans will relish the directness and simplicity of the novel, and they will enjoy watching as sensitivity, intelligence, and faith gradually shape Virginia into a young woman who gives generously to others and overcomes the disappointments life brings her way." ( Booklist)

Great Book Series!

Virginia must learn to navigate marriage as a newlywed. Things aren’t the romantic fairytale that she had imagined and she has to figure out the ins and outs of married life while taking care of a live in grandmother, a surprise commitment from her wayward friend Jenny, her growing family and a new home with all the struggles that come with that. Through her hurt, anger, and resentment, God changes her heart to make her see things through His eyes and test her faith and dependence on Him and his faithfulness.
