{{Looking for Day 5 of Teen Week? Click Here to see an updated review!}}

 About this book:

  “Christine is recovering from a broken heart and finds solace in helping her adored brother Henry settle into married life. The "call of the North" tugs at her, making one young man's interest in her doubly attractive--but also filling her with uncertainty. Is Christine willing to give up her dreams of living in the North and let God help her choose a lifelong love?”

Series: Book #6 of the “Canadian West” series.

My personal Rating- 
Mrs. Janette Oke, I love how clean your books are, but I don’t understand this one at all.
What was That?! Did it serious just end like that?!
Okay, I’m calm now. Somewhat. First off, I’m still having a hard time picturing Elizabeth & Wynn old. It’s just plain weird.
Secondly, why did every guy that met Christine fall in love with her and become a romantic thing? Three guys! 3! I think that’s a record. And the best one wasn’t even the winner! She never talked to him again! Whaaaat?! Not cool, Chrissy, not cool. He was willing to wait for you and was so sweet about it! *sigh* I can’t really say more for fear of spoilers, but oh! I was not happy with the ending! The first four of the series was much better and I wish there wasn’t these last two…they really mess up the series. :(

See y’all on Monday with a new review! :)

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
