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.
