"The city had changed much since then, but I had changed more. The young, stylish schoolteacher from the East no longer existed. In her place was an older, wiser and, I hoped, more sensitive woman."

Elizabeth and her Canadian Mountie husband, Wynn, are nearing their first wedding anniversary. They've been making a life for themselves at Beaver River, a village in the far Northwest, but they'll face a devastating disappointment in When Breaks the Dawn by author Janette Oke.

This novel felt like classic Janette Oke to me: homey but challenging frontier life, simply depicted. I've respect for Elizabeth's approach to the new teaching position (and even the motherly role) she gets to fill. Although she strives to educate and nurture the native children in her charge, she's not out to "make them white," so to speak, but instead she seeks to understand the village people's culture more.

Some of my favorite parts are when Elizabeth looks outside of herself and empathizes with other people's concerns, particularly her husband's. As with the previous novels in the series, I still feel that Elizabeth cries too often for her tears to stay interesting, but she's not a weak heroine. I got to realize right along with her how much she's changed, and following the course and distinct shift of her homesickness may be what I liked best about this read.

My enjoyable mission to finish the Canadian West series continues. On to Book Four. ( )

The third book in the Canadian West series. I'm getting tired of this series now, but out of curiosity I might read a few more. ( )

I am really enjoying this series. Each book gets better. Wynn and Elizabeth Delaney are my favorite characters. ( )

This book (3rd in the series) picks up literally the same day that book 2 finishes. I am enjoying reading this series, but liked books 1 & 2 better than 3. It continues the story of Elizabeth and Wynn facing hardships, but enduring. Elizabeth is able to start a school, begins to deepen her friendships and get to know the people better, but struggles with their inability to have children. Then Wynn is presented with a new posting at another village. Can God carry them through their deep struggles?
I think the story of this book can be summarized very well by a few sentences taken from the author in this book. Elizabeth's thoughts: "I knew that in orer to have peace with God one must meet His conditions. The first thing I had to do was to confess my sin. In this case it was my bitterness and resentment. I was angry with God. . . "
"What I did know was that God was in charge of my life. He was my sovereign God. He knew what was good for me, and I needed to understand that in His great love for me, He would comfort and sustain me. . . . " ( )
