Where Courage Calls--Janette Oke and Laurel Oke Logan

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 to accept a teaching position in the rugged foothills of western Canada. Inspired by her aunt Elizabeth, who went west to teach school several years ago, and gently encouraged by her father, Beth resolves to put her trust in God and bravely face any challenge that comes her way.
But the conditions in Coal Valley are even worse than she’d feared. A recent mining accident has left the town grieving and at the mercy of the mining company. The children have had very little prior education, and many of the locals don’t even speak English. There isn’t even a proper schoolhouse. In addition, Beth’s heart is torn between two young men–both Mounties, one a lifelong friend and the other a kind, quiet man who comes to her aid more than once.
Despite the many challenges, Beth is determined to make a difference in the rustic frontier town. But when her sister visits from the East, reminding her of all the luxuries she’s had to give up, will Beth decide to return to her privileged life as soon as the school year is over?

My Review:

I have missed reading Janette Oke books.  She is the author who got me started reading Christian Fiction.  This book was classic Janette Oke, filled with strong characters and filled with GOD's love.  Janette is one of the best at portraying how GOD is always there through her writing.  Beth is a very determined young woman.  No matter what happens to her, she tries to follow GOD's will and do what is best.  I really enjoyed this book and am glad there are some new Janette Oke books out.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
