Canadian historical fiction about Home Children.
  LoisBryan | Apr 4, 2021 |
Wait. What?!?! This ends with a cliffhanger?!?!

This lovely, heartwarming story about two reunited sisters caring for orphans in rural Western Canada in the early 1900s in ends on a cliffhanger?!?!

Yep. It sure does.

Loved this refreshing, wonderful story! The gentle storytelling, the hopeful prayers, the determination of Lillian and Grace, the sweet children, the beauty of trusting in God’s provision – loved it all!!

Five Stars!! I absolutely recommend this book! Seriously, when does book two release? I’ll try to be patient! I can’t wait for the series to continue!

Unyielding Hope is available now – visit Baker Book House or Christian Book to purchase your copy today!

While I did receive a complimentary electronic copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers through NetGalley, I purchased my own paperback, which is the version that was read for this review. Had I finished the NetGalley copy, a positive review would not have been required. All opinions expressed are completely my own. ( )

Unyielding Hope by Janette Oke and Laurel Oke Logan takes us to Brookfield, Alberta, Canada where Lillian Walsh lives with her father. Lillian deeply misses her adoptive mother who recently passed away. They are preparing to depart for Wales where Mr. Walsh will be giving a series of lectures as well as visiting his family. Mr. Dorn, a lawyer, arrives to inform Lillian that she has inheritance from her birth parents and that her baby sister, Grace is still alive. Lillian is shocked because she had been told that Grace died with her parents. Lillian postpones leaving and works with the law firm to locate Grace. The sisters have a tearful reunion that touches those in attendance. Grace is a joyful woman of deep faith and hope. Grace has begun an undertaking that will change the course of Lillian’s life. Unyielding Hope is the debut novel in When Hope Calls series. I always look forward to a novel by Janette Oke (I have been reading them since I was a teen). I know I will be getting a well-written Christian novel featuring a likeable female protagonist. I got myself comfortable and began reading this engaging historical novel that quickly transported me back in time. I was not disappointed with Unyielding Hope. Two sisters separated at a young age who rediscover each other. They take on children who are without parents or a home. They create a special family for these orphans. I like how the sisters treated these poor kids. They did not view them as a burden or extra help. The sisters gave them love, structure and a safe home. The authors deal with the topic of Home Children. A program where hundreds of children from England were transported to various countries that included New Zealand, Australia, and Canada (the author’s preface explains the program). We get a realistic picture of what life was like for these children. Some were fortunate and found good homes, but many of these kids were treated like farm hands and servants. They would be discarded like a newspaper in a recycling bin. I loved the kids in this tale. There were a variety of ages and personalities. It is just terrible what they had been through in their young lives. I found it delightful how Harrison would introduce himself to people. There is a hint of romance in this story which I believe it will be explored further in the next book. I am glad that it was not the prevalent theme in the book. There are good Biblical messages in the story. Grace was a woman with a strong faith. I like how she expressed it and showed by example. Hope is the dominant theme throughout the story. Unyielding Hope is a touching story that will linger with you long after you finish it. ( )

Fans of these two authors will be most pleased with their latest offering. Fans of Hallmark's When Hope Calls series will also enjoy this first book in the book series by the same name, although they will notice some differences. Hearts will rejoice with the sisters' reunion, and grieve for their losses. They will rise with emotion as they come to love the children under the sisters' care, and will grow concerned over their hurts. This book is definitely not a stand-alone read as it ends with a cliff hanger. I only hope it won't be a long wait until the release of the series' second book. I am grateful to have received a copy of Unyielding Hope from Bethany House via NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion. I was under no obligation to provide a positive review and received no monetary compensation. ( )
