Love's Long Journey  Sep 8, 2006
I tried to read this book three times and gave up after a few chapters. Then I decided I was going to read it from cover to cover, and I was delighted to find that the book picks up momentum as it goes along. It's like the first few chapters your'e pushing uphill, and all of a sudden you arive at the top and . . . WHEEEEE!!!!!!! A wholesome, well written novel about a young couple starting a new life together in the West. Realistic - not a fairy tale - but a joy to read. If I had a complaint, it would be the polarization between the Christians and the non religious charactors. Missy is always feeling sorry for the lost people and thinking about how cold and hard their hearts are, and how they have problems. I am a Christian, and I feel it is important to share my faith with others, but it should be remembered that all people are created in a unique and special way - believers and unbelievers. There are very few people who are so sick they are just one lump of pain and problems. Also, I thought it was slightly annoying how Missy constantly sympathized with the trivial difficulties of her neighbors on the wagon train when she had just as bad or worse problems herself. Seems a bit like a saviour complex, to me. Having thus said, I enjoyed this book and would highly reccomend it to fans of Inspirational and historical fiction.
Movie confused me..........still liked it   Mar 25, 2006
I started reading the books after i watched all 3 movies. The book was very different then the book. I cant say i was disappointed. I enjoyed reading this version. This book was about Missie's journey to the west, and what she went through to get there. How hard it must of been. I still recomend this book. Just dont go into it thinking it is like the movies.
Doormat heroine... So so  Dec 29, 2005
Missie looooooooves Willie and will do anything for him including giving up her family, traveling in a covered wagon, and going west to live and work on a Ranch, something she has no interest in at all. Willie looooves Missie and subjects her to a harrowing dream west, the pitfalls of traveling in a covered wagon, isolation, and living in a sodhouse for two years while he selfishly pursues his dream of becoming a rancher.

Ech. I enjoyed the first two books in this series but the romance between Missie and Willie just did not enthrall me like Marty/Clark romance. Perhaps because I never liked Willie LeHaye in the first two books, and to suddenly find him the 'hero' in book three grated. Or perhaps, I hated how Missie (playing the true romance novel heroine), never seems to assert her needs and wants with her husband, constantly 'sacrificing' so Willie can pursue 'his dream.' I could've enjoyed this novel much more if Missie wanted to Ranch as much as Willie... But this was not the case. Missie hates the idea of moving west and ranching the first 3/4 of the book.

I guess I prefer my romance novels to focus more on the partnership between two people and less on the selfish desires of one person (Willie). I also felt the author went a bit overboard with repeating the Isaiah verse at every possible opportunity. Okay we get it already.

3 stars. Would be better if Missie asserted herself more, and Willie was more sensitive to her needs.
Oke did it again.  Oct 23, 2005
This is one of my favorite books out of the series. I love the adventure and romance that this book brings with it. I laughed and I cried but mostly I cried. I love this story and think that everyone should read it.
Love's Comes Softly Series  Oct 9, 2005
Simply written, from a Christian point of view, consequently contains no contradictions , just homilies about the goodness of those who believe, and the so called poverty of spirit of those who don't. I found her writing subtly condescending (like most Christian writers), lacking in muscularity and tension, but unfortunately uncluttered with any ideas of complexity and truth. Old fashioned.
