Book Review: Love's Unending Legacy (1984)

Love's Unending Legacy. Janette Oke. 1984. Bethany House. 239 pages.

Love's Unending Legacy is the fifth book in Janette Oke's Love Comes Softly series. In this one, Clark and Marty return home after a very long visit with Missie and Willie. It takes a few weeks--if not months--to adjust back into their "normal" routines. Especially for Marty! For she discovers that she is pregnant. She's embarrassed by this pregnancy because she has quite a few grandchildren already. Her daughter-in-law, Clare's wife, is also expecting; they'll be due around the same time! Adding to her "shame" is the fact that Arnie will be getting very soon! While this pregnancy is the focus of the first half of the novel, the second half focuses more on Ellie. It is time for Ellie to fall in love, get married, and start a family of her own! But who is the right man for Ellie?!

I enjoyed this one. I had forgotten a few things about it since it has been quite a while since I last read it. But for the most part, it was just as pleasant as I remembered it. I do enjoy Ellie and Lane!
