Publisher's Summary

The dream of their own farmstead and a good life in America had brought Roald and Ingeborg Bjorklund across the Atlantic to pioneer the virgin prairie of Dakota Territory. But Roald's tragic disappearance in a winter storm turned Ingeborg's dreams into a living nightmare. Against nearly impossible circumstances and overwhelming grief, she struggles to keep the farm and her family together. When spring appears, Roald's distant cousin, Haaken, arrives to help with the heavy field work, and Ingeborg is able to once again concentrate her efforts on home and children. After the bleak winter, she cannot ignore the joy that Haaken brings to their lives or the attraction she begins to feel toward him. When Roald's brother from Norway also arrives to help the family, things become even more complicated around the simple prairie dwelling.

What the Critics Say

"[ A New Day Rising is] distinguished for its detailed understanding of farm life on the prairie, which Snelling never romanticizes." ( Booklist)

    Story
    "Immigrant History Retold"

    Laurianne Snelling is at the top of historical fiction. I enjoyed and appreciated this faith-based writing. The Red River of the North has long been one of my favorite series, and I was thrilled to listen to it audibly. She paints such a clear picture of what immigrant settlers life must have been like on the prairie, creating a curiosity and desire to visit the area someday!

    Story
    "Farming in untamed land, Wonderful Story!"

    It interested me to learn how the land was broken up to farm. It took a long time. The characters were fascinating! How difficult it had to be to leave family from another country then go into a place not established.
    The performance was excellent!
    The story itself kept me listening daily. I'm looking forward to the next book!

    "Excellent."

    Very well written and narrated. It brings laughter and tears. Additionally, it brings to mind the work and sacrifices of those who first settled this land.

    Story
    "Great- Way Above-average Christian novel!"

    What is so great about this novel is that it contains great characters, a great story, and detailed information that is far from boring that tells you about the day and time in which the story is set. The religious element is there in just the right way because it is simply down to earth Christian faith expressed through trials and gratitude and humble prayers and praise.
