The Book✯✯✯A sweet, charming, Wild West story spanning 4 generations of pioneers in Montana.
This book was like cuddling up under a blanket in the dead of winter to watch Hallmark channel movies about the West. In fact, the Hallmark Movies (and the books that inspired them) of the Love Comes Softly series entered my mind often while I was reading.
The family was sweet to follow, and their adoration for God and continual prayers is something I aspire to also do. I live in Wyoming where it is traditional and mostly Christian, so this series following generations that live a harsh life with dedication to God and the ability to stay in one area hits close to home. We have cars (promise). We have indoor plumbing, A/C, central heat, and Walmart. But the land is harsh. Winds continually get to 80 mph, the winter is bitter cold (think -20*) and long, and the summer is blistering (100*)--though our summers are not as difficult as the desert states'. Welcome to the West. And it made it easy to picture the exact setting of a little frontier town in Montana.
It isn't for everyone, but it is clean and sweet. It has very little action because it is just about life as a pioneer woman. And it is incredibly predictable. But sometimes we all need a break from the hustle and bustle and this 3-in-1 provides the sanctuary to take a breath.
