Janette Oke's legacy reaches far beyond the four-dozen novels she has written, the awards she has won, or even the publishing trends her writing success has influenced. It is best represented by the thousands of letters she receives from readers around the world whose hearts and minds have been profoundly affected by her stories. And all this began with her signature story, Love Comes Softly.
Now this beloved classic is about to find its way to the small screen in a Hallmark motion picture directed by Michael Landon, Jr. To celebrate this honor and recognize this million-seller for its impact on Christian fiction, Bethany House is repackaging Love Comes Softly for both devoted fans and an entire new generation of readers ready to fall in love with Marty and Clark.
Tragic circumstances brought Marty and Clark Davis together in a "marriage of convenience" on the frontier prairies of the mid 1800s. Often left alone to learn first-hand lessons of pain and heartache, Marty soon finds her new husband's quiet, supportive love to be exactly the healing touch she needs.
A message of hope and joy and a celebration of family strength through the hardest of circumstances, this is a novel that continues to change lives.
