Publisher's Description

Inspiring Conclusion to a Popular Series with a TV tie-in

When Beth Thatcher returns to Coal Valley, she has much to be excited about. She anticipates Jarrick's proposal of marriage and perhaps a spring wedding. The mine is expanding, and there are more schoolchildren than ever.

But the town's rapid growth brings many challenges. A second teacher is assigned, and Beth finds herself going head-to-head with a very different philosophy of education--one that dismisses religion and rejects God. Fearful for the children who sit under the influence of Robert Harris Hughes, Beth struggles to know how to respond.

At the same time, Beth wonders if Jarrick is considering a position at her father's company simply for her sake. Should she admit her feelings on the matter? Or keep silent and allow Jarrick to make up his own mind?

    This review was written for #3: Where Hope Prevails.
    I have greatly enjoyed this series and was excited to see another sequel! After a long visit with her wealthy family Beth Thatcher excitedly returns to rural Coal Valley, the place that has stolen her heart and to her beloved teaching job with the miners children. She loves the simplicity, never missing the prosperous life she grew up with. She is in for a surprise! Nothing looks the same! Not only has the small town grown, but the beautiful trees have all been cut down to make way for more homes. She feels sick and hates the hideous stumps that dot the land.

    If that isnt bad enough, she has found they have hired another teacher to help with the increased number of children. Being accustomed to being in control and having the school to herself, Becky is upset to say the least. But that isnt the worst of it. She also learns she will not be able to stay at her beloved Mollys boarding house, the woman that is like a mother to her. There isnt room plus somehow there is the assumption that she and her Mountie boyfriend, Jarrick, are going to be married! She must stay in the upstairs apartment the Grants used to inhabit. The family brings back so many bad memories. Their abusive attitudes, the husbands arrest and the wifes attempted suicide there. The quarters are cramped, dingy, and cold! She has no idea how to cook or care for a household, plus she has never stayed alone! Poor Becky

    Some sequels begin to fizzle out as they are added but this one did not. The plot is full of surprises and wonderful characters. Becky has always been one to jump to conclusions and think the worst of people and situations. God works on her in a big way to wait on Him and learn to trust His choices for her. She grows in leaps and bounds in her spiritual maturity and abilities. I hope there is another sequel after this one!

    I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers.

    This review was written for #3: Where Hope Prevails.
    Where Hope Prevails is the third book in the Return to the Canadian West trilogy by Janette Oke with her daughter, Laurel Oke Logan. This series is a companion series to Hallmark channels When Calls the Heart show, which I have become a fan of over this past year. To see this advertised on the back cover of the book as being a companion caught my interest, but I found it very hard to follow. Ive seen the first and second seasons of When Calls the Heart and the first two episodes of season three, and this is the first book that Ive read from this trilogyor by this author, period, although Ive enjoyed dozens of screen adaptations of her works. At first, the book seemed to be picking up right with the beginning of the third season. However, as I continued reading, I came across at least five characters whom I did not recognize, and found that the plot differed slightly, as well as having missing characters from the TV show. This made it really confusing for me, being familiar with the show, so if you are a faithful Heartie, I would not recommend starting off with this book. Perhaps if you read the whole trilogy instead of just the last book.🙂 Which brings up another good thing to mention: This book does not stand alone. You have to be very familiar with the storyline and characters, and even then it may not make sense.

    For those of you unfamiliar with the When Calls the Heart phenomenon, Ill try and sum up the series here for youbut I would not recommend starting with this book, just working your way up to it. Elizabeth Thatcher is from a rich family in Eastern Canada, and she decides to move out west and become a school teacher in a little town called Coal Valley (later renamed Hope Valley). It is there that she meets the Mountie Jack (Or Jarrick, as hes called in this book by Elizabethwhos called Beth in the book) Thornton, who she eventually falls in love with, and in the beginning of this book, becomes engaged to. Throughout this book Elizabeth continues to face trials in Hope Valley, with her family, and with a new schoolteacher who becomes her competition.

    This would still probably be a good read if you have read the first two books in the series and havent seen the Hallmark show, but I would not recommend mixing the two mediums. It makes for one muddled story.

    Thank you so much to Bethany House publishers for providing me with a copy of this book to read and review. All opinions are my own and were not required to be positive.

    This review was written for #3: Where Hope Prevails.
    Beth returns to Coal Valley planning for a year of teaching and a wedding in the spring. But she doesnt expect the many changes that have happened while she has been gone all summer. The town has expanded, many trees cut down, and a second teacher hired to accommodate all the new childrena man who does not hold the same beliefs in God and who has moved into her previous home, forcing her to relocate.

    Where Hope Prevails is the third and final book in the Return to the Canadian West series by Janette Oke and Laurel Oke Logan. It is a sweet story of growth for Beth, her fianc, and the many people in her beloved town. Much of the story focuses on Beth as she comes to terms with the changes happening in Coal Valley, especially with the other teacher who she consistently tries to thwart rather than showing him Gods love. The story is rich in historical detail, growing relationships, and sometimes-funny misunderstandings. Beth faces some of her insecurities and learns a little more of what it will mean to be a wife, including facing overbearing in-laws and talking to her partner in a way that is truthful and respectful. Through Beths relationship with the other teacher, she struggled with trusting him to teach the children the truth though she believed in God and Creation and he believed in Atheism and Evolution. The most memorable parts of the story truly did focus on the growth of the different characters, and it was very well done.

    I enjoyed this book immensely and recommend it to those who love sweet, historical romance.

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    This review was written for #3: Where Hope Prevails.
    If you follow Janette Oke you are no stranger to wonderful stories that capture our hearts and beg to be read again and again. Where Hope Prevails is just such a story. Fans of the Hallmark series When Calls the Heart will delight in this companion tale of Elizabeth Thacker and her dashing Mountie Jack Thornton. Where Hope Prevails, book 3 in Return to The Canadian West is a collaboration with Lauren Oke Logan.

    Our story begins as Elizabeth returns to her beloved Coal Valley to find some unsettling changes. While she was visiting her family over the summer, many new families have settled in Coal Valley causing is a housing shortage. Her room at Miss Molly's has been rented to someone else. She will be living alone for the first time in her life in a small apartment.

    More families meant more students. As she pondered how to teach so many extra pupils she discovered that an additional teacher was hired. Not just any teacher but Mr. Robert Harris Hughes. A man with two last names whose beliefs are vastly different than Beth's with teaching style including a modern philosophical method delivered in a superior manner. She is determined that his modern philosophical ideas will not suit her Coal Valley students. Hang onto your seats as sparks fly with pure entertainment between Elizabeth and Mr. Harris Hughes.

    Adding all these new things to the mix, she is still waiting for Jack (Jarrick) to propose. He is notably absent in Coal Valley as his work takes him along to other small towns in the area. It is just one more adjustment to make. All in all she has not had the desired return she longed for when she got off the train in her beloved Coal Valley.

    Where Hope Prevails (Return to the Canadian West Book #3) by [Oke, Janette, Logan, Laurel Oke]This is a story about change and how one young woman faces all the new and very uncertain things in her life. As she faces each change she is reminded of her hopes, dreams and her faith. In true Janette Oke fashion, we are given some life lessons. Elizabeth learns that she can't control everything in her life. She would like to have everything in its place. People don't always embrace life the same way we would like them to. All in all, there is good in everyone, even those with whom we disagree. How much better it is when we learn to discern their good qualities and give loyalty where it is deserved. If you read just one of the books in this series, I recommend that you chose Where Hope Prevails. Elizabeth Thacker is a wonderful heroine and in this book particularly she grows in wisdom and faith.

    This review was written for #3: Where Hope Prevails.
    Janette Oke is one of my favorite authors, so I was excited when I had a chance to review one of her newest books, Where Hope Prevails. Also, I've been following the series on Hallmark, so I was excited to get into the book series as well.

    I have to say that I usually love a book - especially one from this author - more than a television show, but this time I found the opposite to be true. I actually found myself getting quite annoyed with the main character, Beth, who seemed to be above everyone else at all times and extremely judgmental. She also seems to be a coward, unable to face situations head-on.

    I have to say that this portrayal of a girl who had come so far from city life did not quite match up to what I expected her to be. Even in regards to her fiance, she didn't have the courage to just speak up and share her feelings. This seemed to go against the idea of a brave girl who, despite her family's objections, was willing to brave a new, unfamiliar world.

    As far as Christian charity is concerned, Beth seems to be completely lacking, believing that someone with beliefs different from hers doesn't deserve her time or respect.

    Beth and Jarrick's engagement also paints Beth in a bad light, showing a very shallow side of her that cares about having all the frills and bows that she could afford in the city. The ending shows a better side of her, but it was rather irritating throughout the story.

    I also found several pieces of the puzzle to seem half-answered. For instance, is Julie really spending all of her time on special soaps and lotions? It seems that there could have been more there - especially since Julie doesn't really seem to be doing anything with it on a regular basis. And what have Beth and Jarrick decided to do about his job?

    While it was a pleasant enough read, I was rather disappointed in the plot for this book - especially since I love the series on Hallmark.
