Summary

It is 1893, and the first generation of immigrants who came to America for the promise of free land and a good life for their children have finally achieved their dreams. They labored hard on the land and now have a bountiful heritage to pass on to the next generation. However, many of the young people aren't interested in becoming farmers - they have aspirations of their own.  

Thorliff Bjorklund has been writing stories and plays since he was a young boy and longs to attend college to study journalism. But his father has other plans for him and refuses to agree.  

Thorliff is torn between love for his father and the pull of his dream. Must he choose between the two?

Narrator made it hard to pay attention

I love Lauraine Snelling’s books especially the books I affectionately call “Ingaborg’s”. I read this one in print and loved the story. But the narrator’s fake accent, inflection and speed of speaking made it very difficult to pay attention. Other books in Snelling’s series were easy and enjoyable. I just couldn’t make it through this one though.

Narrator's attempts at accents are poor

I love all books from Lauraine Snelling that are part of the Red River of the North Series. This was no exception. However, the narrator's imitation of accents was very poor and even annoying. Once I got used to it, I tried to overlook that and enjoyed the story. I wish I could find these books narrated by Callie Beaulieu. She does a beautiful job in all the other books.
