Book Review: Dana’s Valley by Janette Oke

Even though this is not a new book, or a book by an indie author, this story made such an impact on me I want to share it. (And it’s a great thing to add to your Christmas list!!! :) )


Dana’s Valley is my second favorite book of Janette Oke’s beside the Love Comes Softly series.  This is the only book I have read that made me cry pretty much all the way through.  It really gave me a glimpse into  what life is like when a loved one has cancer.



From the back cover:

Erin Walsh thinks her family is as close to perfect as it can be. When one grim diagnosis is all it takes to shake her family to the core, she wonders if they can ever go back to they way they were. Erin’s attempts to go about life as usual feel empty and as each member of her family seems to struggle alone, she is about ready to give up on God. However, Erin has yet to learn that God will never give up on her.


This book was recommended to me by a friend, and I was more than happy to receive it as a gift. You can’t go wrong with this amazing story! But have a box of tissues nearby!
