    When Breaks the Dawn is the third novel in Janette Oke s Canadian West series I found that this book was much improved over the second in the series and just as good as the first.This installment starts out exactly where the second book left it, at the trader s and his wife s return to the settlement with much needed supplies Unlike the other books however, this one covers several years instead of just one year.Elizabeth has largely adjusted to living life in the frigid North and with her frie When Breaks the Dawn is the third novel in Janette Oke s Canadian West series I found that this book was much improved over the second in the series and just as good as the first.This installment starts out exactly where the second book left it, at the trader s and his wife s return to the settlement with much needed supplies Unlike the other books however, this one covers several years instead of just one year.Elizabeth has largely adjusted to living life in the frigid North and with her friend Nimmie starts a school for the children of the settlement While it does not catch on quickly she finds a few willing students to learn all she has to teach One of these in particular, a little girl named Susie, actually lives with Elizabeth and Wynn for awhile and gives them a taste on what it is like to have children.Susie wouldn t be the only child they would take care of in the book however They also adopt a baby from a man who s wife has died and spend a whole year with him, learning to love them as their own Sadly, this does not last for very long.In this book as well is a slight description of an action scene Wynn must go out in the cold to track down a bootlegger and murderer While we are not introduced to the scene firsthand, he relives it for Elizabeth when he arrives back home I was actually surprised to find this in the novel as most of the books by Oke I have read have very little conflict between person and person rather than person and elements.As far as plotlines go there isn t really a set plotline for this novel Itjust chronicles their life over about 3 4 years and how they survive If I were to say the book had anything resembling a plot line, I wouldsay it had a theme Elizabeth s infertility A big part of the book is written about Elizabeth s feelings and actions at being unable to conceive a child It was written with a lot of emotion and having never experienced those issues myself as of yet I can t say whether they were accurate descriptions of the emotions involving infertility, but they seemed genuine to me.I found a lot of things improved in this book over the second one in the series For starters, Elizabeth becomes her strong independent self again There is no simpering and acting like a child whose husband has to guide her in every step Also, Oke tones down the preachiness and instead reverts to her Christian values as they were in the first book, lead by example, not by sermon.Oke s writing as always is very homey and clear Her books are pleasant with nothing that would be considered offensive This book, like the others in the series, is written from Elizabeth s perspective.Oke s characters are very believable in this book She tries to give the reader a glimpse at the struggle for Elizabeth between the Indian and English languages and shows her attempts at translation She also makes her characters have faults rather than be perfect at all times Since it is a Christian novel, the characters themselves actually reflect on their own sins.Overall I did enjoy this book It wasn t as good of a plot line as the first but it definitely improved on the second book As a reader I enjoyed it and it s one of those books where if you don t want to, you don t have to think too hard about the message, you can just read for enjoyment.When Breaks The DawnCopyright 1986223 pagesComment Comment

    I used to read Janette Oke a lot when I was younger so I decided to pick up this book in a moment of nostalgia In a nutshell, this book is about the trial and tribulations of Elizabeth and Wynn while they endure the hardships of the rugged west You don t have to have read the first two books in the series but it might be helpful Some characters are mentioned in passing that will be unfamiliar if you haven t read the previous two books but it doesn t affect the present storyline much Some boo I used to read Janette Oke a lot when I was younger so I decided to pick up this book in a moment of nostalgia In a nutshell, this book is about the trial and tribulations of Elizabeth and Wynn while they endure the hardships of the rugged west You don t have to have read the first two books in the series but it might be helpful Some characters are mentioned in passing that will be unfamiliar if you haven t read the previous two books but it doesn t affect the present storyline much Some books are a historical fiction with religious overtones this particular book is a Christian novel that is historical fiction if the difference makes sense It s a simple quick read and you find yourself really caring about the characters all of them There is heartache and sorrow along with joy and triumph There is one small thing that really bugged me though Elizabeth really struggled and she made mistakes but it frustrated me a bit that Wynn was so good Wynn made all the right decisions and was the pillar for Elizabeth to lean on He didn t argue, yell, or do anything crazy He had the appropriate emotions at the appropriate times He always remembered to trust in God and pray It wasn t just a matter of a perfect imperfect characters but it almost came across as the man knows best, which rubbed me the wrong way This didn t ruin the book for me in anyway and it was still a good book, but I m not sure if I will finish the series because my irritation would only grow.Any detail will give something away so I will keep from spoiling this for someone else

    I liked the first book, but the next two were too God in my face, and there was absolutely no romance mentioned I mean really, I m no prude, but even God wants people to have kids At least talk about it a bit It s such a white elephant in the room how it is so ignored until so late in this series.

    Now settled in the remote village with her Mountie husband, Elizabeth s life is still full of changes Her friends need help, she wants to start a school, and she desperately wants to start a family The emotional turmoil and pain some of these cause may hit close to home for some, but the author doesn t dwell on sadness for too long and Elizabeth s faith in God always brings hope.

    Elizabeth and Wynn make the most of their life in the Northern territories while trying to build a family and create new memories together When trouble comes their way, Elizabeth and Wynn are reminded that exciting things may still lay ahead, over the very next hill While retaining the beloved characters of the original book in the series, book three does not hold the same spark as the original.

    This was a really slow readthe 215 pages covered about 4 years Little bit here, little bit there Elizabeth was kind of annoying and whiny and it was just kind of a depressing read I ll read the rest of the series to see how it ends Tell me it gets better

    This was Book 3 of a series of 4 I won t be reading Book 4 In this book, the Bible verses increased, as the story, itself, became boring.
