Book Review: Love's Long Journey (1982)

Love's Long Journey. Janette Oke. 1982. Bethany House. 240 pages.

Love's Long Journey has always been one of my favorites in this series. I love the romance between Missie and Willie, and I found their wagon train journey west interesting. Both Missie and Willie are missing the families they are leaving behind. Both know that they may never see their families again, and that even keeping touch through letters may be difficult. But Missie loves her husband so much that she believes in her husband's dreams fully. Missie also has a secret. She's pregnant. She doesn't want her parents to know--they'd worry. She doesn't want her husband to know too soon either, he'd worry too. But it's a secret that can't be kept for long, and it will change their plans! Willie is determined to leave Missie behind in a town with a doctor despite her protests. It would be too risky to have it in their new home, there wouldn't even be neighbors nearby to help, not even a midwife. But Missie, well, she's not thrilled that her husband is going to leave her behind for a few months and go ahead west to prepare a place for her and the baby...

I really love this book.
