Janette Oke continues the story of Marty and Clark from her "Love Comes Softly" series with this book focusing on their granddaughter Virginia. Just entering her teen years, Virginia is finding life in her household a bit stifling. Although she dearly loves her family, she is anxious to grow up and often finds the family rules and religious beliefs are getting in the way of her fun. When Virginia becomes friends with a lively, outgoing girl named Jenny, she suddenly finds herself questioning her need to obey her parents when she could be enjoying herself with her friends. Unfortunately, Jenny's headstrong behavior soon has tragic consequences.
I was enthralled after only reading the cover of this one. Hearing that this was Belinda's daughter from the Love Comes Softly series had me excited instantly.
And this book lived up to my hopes. A friend gifted this to me, and it was such a pleasant surprise. I read it when I first got it, and then dug it back out when I received the 2nd and 3rd this year.
