When Hope Springs New by Janette Oke (21)

This is a Christian novel that expounds on some of the values that we all want to hold onto in a world where values of any kind are downgraded to political correctness.

The story is about two ladies who had to leave behind their friends in Beaver River. Elizabeth and Wynn take over an even more primitive Mounted Police outpost in the Canadian Northwest.

Elizabeth finds herself once again isolated because of the local Indian women’s fear of communicating with her. The Delaney’s thought they had already faced their greatest hardships and disappointments. But this new village brings an even greater test of their faith, courage and dedication.

This is a book that most Christian women will enjoy. I loved the way the ladies fought for who they were and kept courageously marching onward to the tune of their own values without being dissuaded by others in the community who didn’t understand them.

This book is a must-read for people who love stories about deeper values.

Rating: 5 stars
