Where Courage Calls

We are introduced to Beth Thatcher in "Where Courage Calls".  Beth has lived her whole life in a safe place and has been well-provided for by her family.  She wanted for nothing.

A teaching opportunity arises in Coal Valley.  Coal Valley is a mining town where most of the men died in a mining accident.  The women and children left behind are grieving and struggle daily for their daily needs.  Beth finds ways to not only teach the children in the town, but to reach beyond herself and find ways to help the people in the town.   One thing is very apparent, Beth has a huge heart.

Beth also finds herself in deep thought about two different men.  One she has known her whole life, the other she met in her new journey.  They are both very respectable men.  What will Beth decide?

This is the first book that I have read authored by both Janette Oke and Laurel Oke Logan.  I found the tone of the book brought back the same warm feeling that accompanied Janette Oke's earlier books.  If you are a fan of Janette Oke... don't miss this great book.

I received this book complimentary from Bethany House Publishers.  This review is strictly my own opinions and views.  I was not paid for this review.

  1. Hi Lindsay,

    My name is Jeremiah, from LIFE SENTENCE Publishing in Abbotsford Wisconsin. We have a small base of bloggers who review books for us, and after a few months of tweaking how our blog tours are run, we’re now ready to take it to the next level.

    If you’re interested in joining our blog tours, we’ll send you a monthly email featuring our upcoming blog tours (see sample: If you like any or all of the titles, you simply request the books via a signup form on our website (

    You’ll receive the book in a week or less, read it (of course : ), write your blog post about the book, and add a link to the book’s blog tour page.

    Note: We do occasional fun things such as coffee gift card giveaways to keep everyone caffeinated and to drive traffic to our blog tour pages.
