ePub Seasons of the Heart/Four Complete Novels in One Book ePub

by Janette Oke

4.5 rating for the whole volume.

I don't read book blurbs when I don't have to, and I had no intention of looking at any blurb or other beforehand to know what Seasons of the Heart was about. Janette Oke's name and the fact that I've known for years that the series existed was enough.

I was in for three noteworthy surprises from the first novel: the story is told in the first person, which isn't common for Oke's novels; second, the protagonist is an adolescent boy, Joshua, which isn't common for Oke's novels; and third, Josh's perspective, along with the well-intentioned but not-the-best-idea scheming of his grandpa and uncle, actually had me laughing aloud, something I'm not used to doing with Oke's novels. I mean, sure, I've enjoyed light moments she's handled with a light hand before, but some of the stuff here is just downright hilarious.

I liked seeing the dynamics of the different kind of family Joshua has, and though the tone of the writing gradually changes through the series as Joshua grows, it's well worth it to follow his story right on into his adulthood.

Simple novels of faith and love and learning through trials (and prairie life and the like) are what I count on this author for, and I've not been disappointed. There's genius in telling uncomplicated but engaging stories that just get the job done.
