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?show more

Back cover copy

She leans forward for her first glimpse of the little mountain town that has captured her heart, but something has changed. Elizabeth Thatcher's highly anticipated return to her beloved Coal Valley after a long summer with her family back east is filled with surprises . . . and not all of them good ones, in her estimation. Maybe the worst one of all relates to her treasured students. Can she adapt and learn to cope with this enormous change? Her Mountie, Jarrick Thornton, hasn't yet proposed, but she already knows what her answer will be. His duties take him away from the valley much too often, in her view, but the two of them, with patience and understanding--and one significant misunderstanding--are learning to know each other better. The dark cloud looming on the horizon in Beth's mind, though, is filled with questions about where their future might take them. As a member of the RCMP, Jarrick is stationed wherever his superiors send him . . . but what about her teaching position in Coal Valley? Beth attempts to do her best with each obstacle she faces, but does she rightly assess each situation as it surfaces? Good intentions don't always lead to good results. . . . A companion story to Hallmark Channel's When Calls the Heart TV series "This tender story will please fans of historical fiction as well as readers looking for ruminations on difficult matters of faith, forgiveness, and commitment."--Publishers Weekly "The plot is believable with some unexpected turns throughout the book. The mother-daughter team of Janette Oke and Laurel Oke Logan is a powerhouse, each have their unique writing style but have created a cohesive and well thought out series."--RT Book Reviews "In Oke's typical biblical approach, Scripture resonates in the pages and as the young heroine wrestles with her own internal struggles and God's Word provides truth, guidance, and a calming balm. Recommended to all audiences, especially Oke fans."--CBA Christian Market "Having followed Beth and Jarrick's relationship and Beth's teaching career through the last two books, fans will be delighted by the charming narrative and satisfying ending."--Library Journalshow more
