Merry Mondays is a weekly meme hosted here @ Mom With a Reading Problem during the month of December to celebrate Christmas and the holiday season. Each week a different topic centered around the holidays will be discussed.
Happy rainy (at least where I am) Monday y’all! It’s true what they say about April that it is wet but there’s a beautiful promise of flowers in May as everything begins to bloom. So it makes since that this month’s topic is “Spring is in the air. What is your favorite book set in Spring?” In the Spring, I have a tendency to break from my normal genre picks of dystopia and scifi, going for more contemporary, sappy romance. I think that this is mostly because my Hallmark romance-esque books mimic Spring. They start off dreary, the characters living a life in shades of gray. But then they get their happy endings and life becomes a rainbow of colors. My favorite book and goto read in the Spring is Janette Oke’s Love Comes Softly. I love this book and the series as well. The Davis family is one my favorites and I’ve always been a sucker for historical fiction, specifically those set in the old West. While this book isn’t necessarily set in Spring (it spans a little over a year), it shows that progression of the promise Spring brings – hope and new life.Love Comes Softly by Janette Oke

Love Comes Softly introduced the characters of Marty and Clark Davis, whose tragic circumstances brought them to a "marriage of convenience" on the frontier prairies during the mid 1800s. The story of how Clark's patient, caring love mirrored that of the heavenly Father, drawing Marty to faith and to love, has captured the hearts and imaginations of over one million readers on Book One alone!
