"When Comes the Spring" by Janette Oke

About this book:

  “After a year of teaching in a one-room schoolhouse on the western frontier, Elizabeth plans her wedding to Wynn Delaney, a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. As they begin their new life together at his isolated outpost in the far north, Elizabeth is unprepared for the loneliness she feels and the rigors of life without any of the conveniences she's accustomed to. Her deep love for Wynn and her faith in God seem like all she has. But will that be enough?”

My personal Rating- 
In my opinion, “When Comes the Spring” wasn’t as good as “When Calls the Heart”, but I still enjoyed it, though it was different. Elizabeth and Wynn’s marriage is very sweet and it was very, very clean!

See y’all on Monday with a new review!
