Om forfatteren

Janette Oke (pronounced "oak") was born in Champion, Alberta, Canada, during the depression years.

She and Edward married in 1957 and went on to serve churches in Calgary and Edmonton, Canada, and vis mere Indiana. Oke published her first book, Love Comes Softly, in 1979. The book experienced immediate success because works of fiction were a virtually unknown genre in the Christian publishing industry. Oke has gone on to publish some 36 romance novels, earning her the 1992 President's Award from the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association. She is the author of the "Love Comes Softly" and the "Prairie Legacy" series of books. Oke enjoys a large reading audience primarily comprised of teenagers, homemakers and working women. She recently started writing for young children. (Bowker Author Biography) vis mindre

Kort biografi
Janette was born during the depression years to a Canadian prairie farmer and his wife, and she remembers her childhood as full of love and laughter and family love. After graduating from Mountain View Bible College in Canada where she met her husband, Edward, they pastored churches in Canada and the U.S., and they raised their family of four children, including twin boys, in both countries. Edward eventually became president of Mountain View Bible College and recently established a coalition of colleges that became Rocky Mountain Bible College.

In recent years, Janette and her siblings lovingly restored their parents' prairie farm home, and it now serves as a gift shop and museum of prairie life. Please see below for a special invitation to the Oke Writing Museum and The Steeves' Historical House. She and her husband live nearby in Alberta, Canada, where they are active in their local church. Visits from their families, including their grandchildren, are their delight.

In the spirit of summer reading programs counting a significant number of pages read as one book, I'm officially marking myself done with this. I slogged through well over a hundred pages (the last chapter number I confidently remember is 19), and I don't think I even got to the story's main conflict. It was a good book to read at bedtime. Girl lives in wilderness. Wilderness is nice. Wilderness can be hard, but always nice.
