Christian Books

 eBay - Profiting With Books By Janette Oke

Author: Gary Hendrickson











Janette Oke is a Christian writer whose books about life, love, values and faith have a huge following among women today. Each of her Christian books for adults falls into one of six different series she wrote. These are:

  • Women Of The West
  • Love Comes Softly
  • Canadian West Saga
  • Season Of The Heart
  • A Prairie Legacy
  • Song Of Acadia (the books in this series were written with T. Davis Dunn)

While they show up at FOL and AAUW book sales, they are most often found at garage sales. They won't find them at every garage or yard sale you visit, but spend a morning on the yard sale circuit and you should come home with several of her book and not have paid more than $.50 for any of them.

You will find a lot of these on eBay but nearly all are sold as single titles and that's a big mistake. In order to make the cash register ring for you with her books you should buy them individually or in groups, hold them until you have a complete series, and then sell the series as one auction.

All information and pricing is for soft-cover editions which are by far the most common.

Here's a list of the books that make up each series:

Women Of The West Series (12 books)

  • The Calling Of Emily Evans *
  • Julia's Last Hope
  • A Woman Named Damarus
  • Roses For Mama *
  • They Called Her Mrs. Doc
  • Measure Of A Heart
  • A Bride For Donnigan
  • Heart Of The Wilderness *
  • The Bluebird and The Sparrow *
  • A Gown Of Spanish Lace *
  • Too Long A Stranger
  • Dreams Of Change *

* These six titles were re-written, with the same titles, for young girls (age 10 - 14) and published as the Janette Oke Classics For Girls Series. When buying these six titles be sure to check which series the book actually belongs to.

I've never found the Classics For Girls series to be a big seller and pass them up when I see them. You can try them if you'd like to though.

Love Comes Softly Series (8 books)

  • Love Comes Softly
  • Loves Enduring Promise
  • Loves Long Journey
  • Loves Abiding Joy
  • Loves Unending Legacy
  • Loves Unfolding Dream
  • Love Takes Wing
  • Love Finds A Home

Canada West Series (6 books)

  • When Calls The Heart
  • When Breaks The Dawn
  • When Comes The Spring
  • When Hope Springs New
  • Beyond The Gathering Storm
  • When Tomorrow Comes

Season Of The Heart Series (4 books)

  • Springs Gentle Promise
  • Once Upon A Summer
  • Winds Of Autumn
  • Winter Is Not Forever

A Prairie Legacy Series (4 books)

  • The Tender Years
  • A Searching Heart
  • A Quiet Strength
  • Like Gold Refined

Song Of Acadia Series (5 books)

  • The Meeting Place
  • The Sacred Shore
  • The Birthright
  • The Distant Beacon
  • The Beloved Land

This last series continues under the name Heirs Of Acadia, but Janette Oke was no longer one of the authors and it isn't nearly as popular. It's the Janette Oke name that sells these books.

Mrs. Oke also wrote a series of 12 early readers for children called Janette Oke's Animal Friends Series. It's also a good seller when sold as a complete series. It's made up of the following titles:

  • The Impatient Turtle
  • The Prodigal Cat
  • Spunky's Dairy
  • This Little Pig
  • New Kid In Town
  • Ducktails
  • Prairie Dog Town
  • Trouble In A Fur Coat
  • Maury Had A Little Lamb
  • Pordy's Prickly Problem
  • A Cote Of Many Colors
  • Who's New At The Zoo

Here's some pricing information for each series from the last several months. The prices shown are the averages each series sold for.

  • Women Of The West - $36.78
  • Love Comes Softly - $42.17
  • Canadian West Saga - $13.19
  • Season Of The Heart - $12.03
  • A Prairie Legacy - $14.38
  • Song Of Acadia - $37.14
  • Animal Friends - $38.63

As you can see some series are more popular than others, but as long as you don't spend more then .50 each per book you will make money with any of them. Just list complete series, start them at $9.95 and let the bidders run them up.

Each of these series was also sold as a boxed set. If you find a set with it's box it will usually add a premium to the the final price.
