Product Description

Emily Evans has a hard time getting herself to class on time, much less figuring out God's will for her life. Then, to her surprise, she feels that God is calling her into full-time Christian service. She expects the Lord will also provide her with a companion to share her life and ministry, but Emily does not want to marry any of the available young men. She squares her shoulders and decides she will accept the task of opening a new church in a pioneer community--alone.

Publisher's Description

She feels God nudging her toward ministry, but what options are there for a young single woman?

Emily Evans has a hard time getting herself to class on time, much less figuring out God's will for her life. Then, to her surprise, she feels that God is calling her into full-time Christian service. She expects the Lord will also provide her with a companion to share her life and ministry, but Emily does not want to marry any of the available young men. She squares her shoulders and decides she will accept the task of opening a new church in a pioneer community--alone.

When Emily arrives at her new assignment, she is disappointed to find the church building in disrepair. After many days of hard work fixing it up, she announces her first service and is once again disappointed, this time in the size of her congregation. Is her faith strong enough to stand against the local doubters and myriad challenges that will test her calling?

    I don't agree with women teaching the Bible unless it's to other women and children -- not men. But putting that aside, the book was an easy read, but mostly predictable in its outcome.

Q: Age Range What is the intended age range for this book, as well as the rest of the Women of the West series? Are they for teens or adults? I've seen some of them repackaged as Janette Oke's Classics for girls, so I wasn't sure if these were intended for a younger audience. Thank you!

A:

The Women of the West series are adult novels. A number of them were repackaged as “Classics for Girls”, those versions are abridged for a younger audience with the same storyline.
