I have really enjoyed the Red River series, including A Land To Call Home, by Lauraine Snelling. If you like historical fiction from the 1800's this is highly recommended. It's also suitable for pre-teens/teens as well. The characters truly rely on their faith and the hope that is packed in the bible. This is so hard to set down once you get reading..
I came upon the last books in this series by Lauraine Snelling and was extremely interested in buying the series of Red River and the Borjlunds. I just had to know how the story all began. These books are so addictive. Each person involved either is one of God's children or becomes part of His family. These stories reflect the faith that grew through horrendous hardships. But love from the Father and each other kept them going and growing.
I enjoyed the continuing story of Ingeborg and her extended family. So nice not to have to worry about profanity or "steamy" scenes. i have bought and thrown away books of this type. I do think the stories could have been continued in the same book to save the reader added cost.
