    I don't think I've ever read anything so crappy. Do people actually enjoy this junk? There was no meaning in it whatsoever unless you count some mumbo-jumbo about God and Jesus. And "Bethan" was the most sickening character I've ever read about. I mean, first of all -- BETHAN? What a stupid name. They explained the origins of the name - a mixture of Elizabeth and Anne, but it was really all overdone. Also, she cries about God every chance she gets and the only reading she ever seems to do is from the Bible. I mean, sure, the Bible could be interesting if looking at it from different prospectives but, CHRIST, girl, expand a little, no wonder you're practically flunking out of school.Another thing that annoyed me -- why are all the main characters either 'very pretty' or 'dashingly handsome'? Is is because they are all so good and godly? Bethan and her friend also frequently visit a Civil War veteran, calling him a hero and whatever. A hero for what? Fighting to keep a certain race of people in chains? There are also no black people in this book, or mixed diversity or culture at all. Of course, it takes place in the south in the 30s, and we all know what those good God- and Jesus-loving people were doing there and then. Ever hear of the Jim Crow laws?This book was awful. Very one-dimensional. Don't waste your time and intelligence, if you have any.

    Once again, Janette Oke has out done herself. She has been a favorite of mine since Marty and Clark Davis came to be "friends" of mine in the Love Come Softly series. It is wonderful to get to know the characters and feel part of their lives! I was afraid to venture beyond the Love Come Softly series for fear of leaving the Davis' behind. I was excited to find that Mrs. Oke has made each family in her books come to life. I can't put the books down and am sad when they end. She always leaves me wanting more! Return to Harmony is a wonderful book!

    When I saw that my 2 favorite authors had collaborated to write a novel, I knew I had to check it out...I was not disappointed!Janette Oke's down-home, easy-to-relate-to characters combine with T. Davis Bunn's detailed, captivating descriptions and humor to keep the reader's attention throughout the narrative. It is obvious that both of these authors love to write, and although their styles and themes may somewhat differ, the combination in Return to Harmony made for enjoyable reading.Thank you both for another terrific title to add to my Christian fiction library!

    Jeanette continues to show us the ups and downs of life on earth. Only trough trusting our Lord and Savior can we go forward to meet life as He has planned for us. Heartache, trials, grief, disappointment, mental stress and deliverance from worldly woes come from faith in our great Triune.

    I believe the novel, Return To Harmony, was one of the best Janette Oke has ever written. It was very inspiring and suspensful. Every time I finish one of her works, I am left with a feeling of hope and happiness. Bethan is a character to be immitated!
