Her character has been shaped and tempered by both adversity and triumph...
If Virginia could have chosen to accept or discard all the changes that came her way, she gladly would have let most of them pass right by herself and her family. She loved her life--living on the farm with her beloved Jonathan and their children, not far from her parents and her grandparents. But a change that is tearing at her heart is the gradual but steady physical decline in Grandma Marty and Grandpa Clark. She cannot imagine their familiar farm home without their welcoming smiles and their words of wisdom that arise from of decades of life experiences and a solid faith in God.
And their lovely daughter Mindy, who has blessed their home ever since her mother left the tiny child with them, has been encouraged and guided to pray for that mother all these years. Was God answering that prayer, or was the worst nightmare any family could face now upon them?
Returning to the legacy of Marty and Clark Davis from the Love Comes Softly series, Janette Oke has again fashioned a touching frontier series for fans of all ages. Picking up twenty years after Belinda's story from Love Finds a Home, A Prairie Legacy series follows Marty and Clark's grandchildren as they grow in faith and maturity. Heartwarming, and as familiar as a smiling face, Janette Oke's writing introduces a whole new generation of characters for both a new generation of readers and dedicated fans alike
Virginia is completely overwhelmed with the circumstances in her life. Her elderly grandparents can no longer stay on the family farm, and her nephew Slate longs to leave for a home of his own. Her brother and his wife leave for Kenya; and Mindy, whom Virginia has raised as her own daughter, may be torn away by a cold-hearted birth mother.
