It has been ages since I read any books written by Janette Oke, and reading her Canadian West series was like a trip back to my teenage years. I used to peruse the library shelves regularly to see what was there that I hadn’t read yet. Somehow, this series never made it to their shelves. 🙁 It wasn’t until there was a TV show made based on book 1 (When Calls the Heart) that I realized I hadn’t read anything from this series.

I read this series in one fell swoop as I wanted so much to know what happened next with Elizabeth and Wynn. Out of all 6, I must say that book 1 and book 4 (When Hope Springs New) were worthy of 5 stars. Book 1 was so endearing with its slower pace of life and the beginnings of a new relationship. Book 4 was a difficult read, but so well written. I ached for Elizabeth and the hardships she faced. She longed for a child, but if she only knew what she was about to experience, the timing of children coming into their lives was worth the wait. Being a Mountie’s wife was never painted in rose-colored glasses, and I truly wondered if she was going to survive. Their postings became more primitive, and at times, I wondered how they would live until their next meal.

Book 4 was definitely finished as an ending to the original series, but there were two additional books written that focused on their children, Henry and Christine. To be honest, I did not love those as much, although the writing is much better (more descriptive, less telling, more showing). Book 6 seemed to end rather abruptly, and I didn’t enjoy Christine’s character much at all.

All in all, this series gets a well-deserved 4 stars. For those thinking that they’ll find the tv series in these pages, prepare yourself for something different, yet entirely worth reading. ( )
