Summary

Just a few short weeks into her yearlong nurse training assignment at the Blessing Hospital, Miriam Antonio is called home to Chicago, where her mother is gravely ill. With siblings to care for, Miriam pleads to be allowed to finish her training in Chicago. Her nursing supervisor grants her a brief reprieve but extracts a promise that Miriam will soon return to Blessing and fulfill her commitment. While in Chicago Miriam has tried to get Trygve Knutson and Blessing out of her mind, but his letters make that impossible.

Trygve is busy building a house, hoping he can convince Miriam to return to North Dakota and marry him. Torn between Trygve's love and her family's needs, she doesn't know what to do. When Miriam finally returns to Blessing, she buries herself in her work. But no matter how hard she tries to put it off, she has some life-changing decisions to make about her future, her family...and the man who is never far from her thoughts. What will it take to convince her to stay?

A BREATH OF FRESH AIR

What a breath of fresh air to read a clean book with strong faith values and strong characters that focus on goodness rather than evil. Clean romance with the problems of everyday life having more than everyday solutions. You feel like the book is describing a place, a town and a lifestyle you would want to be a part of and could dream about.

Great writer and reader

I have read this series and other books by this author and she never disappoints. She's a great story teller and weaves history in to each tale. The reader is great. Don't know how she does it, but I never have to wonder which character is speaking because each voice is unique. Looking forward to the next book.

Word pronunciation

Great book, great series. But narrator, please learn how to pronounce “recipe”. It is very distracting.

Meh

I have read all of the Lauraine Snelling books about these characters in the order in which they flow with the story. This one, although if your read all the books you should read this one, was pretty boring. Nothing really earth shattering happens in this one. It's just a bridge book to get you to the next one, I guess.

More Family Saga

A Harvest of Hope has an excellent plot for a family saga. However, the romance is slight. It’s a rich romance in spiritual wisdom.

another great book by Laraine Snelling

I really enjoy reading her work. It is interesting to learn about how people lived in the eras she writes about. she also dies not sugarcoat life with fairytale endings. people face hardship and death in her books. The goodness of God in spite of the hardships of life shines through. All in all one of my favorite authors.
