A Gown of Spanish Lace

From The Back Cover  

Ariana loves her life-her parents, her little town, her job as the town's schoolteacher, her students. But one evening after classes are done and she prepares to hurry home before a blizzard hits, her whole life changes in an instant.

The two rough-looking men who abduct her and take her far from home and family make no response to her frantic questions- "Why me? What are you going to do? Where are you taking me?" Held hostage in a camp of bandits, Ariana's emotions swing between terror and boredom as days stretch into weeks.

And then the boss's son appears in the doorway of her cabin. Does this mean she will never see her mother and father again, the two who so lovingly adopted her as an infant and raised her as their own? Will she ever wear the wedding dress so carefully saved for her-her one link with her birth parents, now long dead?

This book is so good. It was the first book that I read by Janette Oke and it is also my favorite by her. There were lots of twists to the story and it kept me guessing the whole way through. This is a must read!

I give this book 10 out of 10 R's


  1. Wow! This sounds like a great book. I haven't read many books by Janette Oke, but this one is going on my 'wanna read' list. ;D Have you read "Another Homecoming" by Janette Oke? I'm reading it right now. :)


  2. This is one of my favorite books. You should definitely read it sometime, I think you would enjoy it. No, I haven't read "Another Homecoming" but we do have it, so I'll have to read it sometime. Are you enjoying it so far?

  3. Yes, I am! I haven't been able to spend as much time in it yet, as I'd like to. But I hope to finish it this weekend. :)
