Marty and Clem set out for the pioneer West full of hopes and dreams They would stake a claim of their own on the new frontier and build a home for themselves and their familyBut just after they'd arrived and Clem had chosen the perfect setting for their new home an accident took his lifeleaving Marty alone and pregnant Then on the day of his f Well that ended up being better than I thought Overall I really enjoyed the story It was very sweet and well paced I can't say I'm a huge fan of Oke's writing style Please nobody hit me It's very stripped down and doesn't really delve much into the characters emotions Very prosey I prefer something with a little life to it And the dialogue I wanted to hit myself over the head with the book a few times because of it Each character has a very thick backwoods accent and whether that was realistic or not it really drew me out of the story I had to reread a bit of dialogue two or three times just to know what the character was saying While I often times like the authentic feel accented dialogue gives a character I think it was too much in this case I couldn't focus on the story because of it That was probably my main beef with this book The characters were very lovable and sweet and the story was intriguing and interestingAll in all this was kind of a meh book for me I may or may not read in the series

Love Comes Softly Love Comes Softly #1Uneral Clark Davis came alongand asked Marty to marry himMarty was infuriated but with no money no shelter and a baby on the way what choice did she have Besides Clark said he only wanted her to be a mama to his baby girl Missie If Marty was still unhappy come spring he would pay for her ticket back EastDetermined not to be a burden to Clark an This is such a Christian classic The writer in me wonders why I love it so much when Janette Oke writes an older style that breaks so many modern rules But I truly do love this book It’s like eating comfort food Revisiting it now was a delight I love the Biblical themes that Oke weaves through her stories the realistic characters the true to life events without being melodramatic and the old fashioned feel I remembered the Gospel message in this book being one of my favorites It still is Marty’s spiritual journey is gradual and so tenderly crafted Very realistic I also appreciate that while she uestioned how life could be so hard yet God is Love she didn’t become angry against God or bitter Her search was one of an honest heartYes it is a romance but it’s a romance between a married couple which I find sweet When I first read this book in my teens the romance was a little too much for me perhaps I should note that this was probably the first book I read with any romance to speak of Now it seems like very mild romance Not until the end does Marty begin to have emotional feelings and it is done in a very chaste manner Unlike many modern books written this one doesn’t at all go too far; other marriage of convenience books tend to mention being married “ than in name only” and that whole topic is pretty much avoided Clark and Marty are two grieving souls who need help from each other Really I find it beautifully doneIn short I still like this book I had feared that because of everything I learned in writing it would destroy my enjoyment of the story I was able to shrug them off and love the story for what it is

Love Comes Softly kindle ↠ ↠ Marty and Clem set out for the pioneer West full of hopes and dreams They would stake a claim of their own on the new frontier and build a home for themselves and their familyBut just after they'd arrived and Clem had chosen the perfect setting for their new home an accident took his lifeleaving Marty alone and pregnanD intending only to earn her keep Marty threw herself into her new role of Mama But she had never been anyone's mama before and she didn't even know how to keep a house If only she could do right by this lonely man and his daughter just long enough to earn her train fare back homeNow Marty must learn wholeness and love through patience and fait I used to watch the Hallmark movie version of Oke’s bestselling book over and over again and I was interested in reading the original book However as I came to find out the movie version is vastly different and much better The characters in Oke’s book appear to be very one dimensional Marty refuses to be a bad wife and Clark is stoic and cold in their marriage of convenience And the plot as a whole was very simplistic with day to day details that make the whole thing very cumbersome The story feels rushed as the narration skips over months and other important details and the description of the setting makes it seem like Oke has no idea when Oregon winters occur Love Comes Softly is very shallow and I’m still not exactly sure how Marty came to love Clark and visa versa
