Janette Oke is one of my favourite authors at the moment, and is a “bestselling Christain author of over 70 books, 32 of which have been translated into fourteen languages. Her books have sold over 22 million copies.”
The most recent book I have read by her is: It is part of a 3 book series, and am looking forward to reading the others.
Janette Oke has dreamed for years of retelling a story in a biblical time frame from a female protagonist’s perspective, and Davis Bunn is elated to be working with her again on this sweeping saga of the dramatic events surrounding the birth of Christianity…- via https://www.bookdepository.com
Another one of her series I’ve read recently is the “Return to Canadian West.” The TV series “When Calls the Heart” had been based off them.
“Where Courage Calls” :Her courage and her heart will be tested in ways she never expected… Beth Thatcher has spent her entire life in the safe, comfortable world of her family, her friends, and the social outings her father’s wealth provides. But Beth is about to leave it all behind…… – via https://www.bookdepository.com
I would definitely recommend them both, for around ages 14-15+.
I have also enjoyed reading numerous other books by her. (the links as to where you can purchase the books are embedded in the pictures)
Thanks for the post Clare
These look good, Clare! Might try them out…
These books look really good! I just finished season 3 of the When Calls the Heart TV series, which I love, so I’ve been considering reading the books. Do you know how similar they are?
They are! Awesome! I think I’m almost up to the end of that season, it’s so good! You should 😉 The books are very enjoyable in my opinion, and while they don’t follow the movies exactly, they’re super awesome as well. So, yes, they are fairly similar, but I would read them as not being a word for word movie script 😉 . If that makes sense?
