Just as it appears that our beloved Elizabeth is beginning to really fit in and enjoy her Indian village, Wyn receives notice that he’s been reassigned to a new village, more primitive than the last. Uprooted from her dear friend, Nimmie, and the little shack she has called home for the past two years, Elizabeth is determined to make her new shack a home and reach out the Indian women in friendship once again. There is much adventure awaiting their life in their new village including planting crops, devastating fires, and having to start over once again. Through it all, Elizabeth and Wyn, struggle to remain close to one another and to their God. This was another exceptional novel from Janette Oke. I was proud to call myself a Canadian as I read about these early pioneers who struggled to tame a wild and rugged land. It is with a huge, satisfied smile on my face that I set this last novel down and turn to another series.
