Today, Lauraine Snelling is a member of the more than Two Million Books In Print club, with over 60 books. But when she first began, she was a mother of three teenagers with a simple dream to write "horse books for kids."
Her Norwegian heritage spurred her to craft the Red River of the North family saga and a trilogy called Return to Red River, as well as the Daughters of Blessing series, and the Home to Blessing series. Due to reader demand she is currently working on another Blessing series.
Writing about real issues within a compelling story is a hallmark of Lauraine's style, shown in her contemporary romances and women's fiction which has probed the issues of forgiveness, loss, domestic violence and cancer. In addition to her writing, Lauraine speaks at several conferences and workshops throughout the year. Lauraine lives in California.
Favorite Verse: 1st Corinthians 13. Not the verse, the entire chapter.
Just a few short weeks into her year-long nurse training assignment at the Blessing Hospital, Miriam Antonio is called home to Chicago, where her mother is gravely ill.

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.
