Publisher's Description

Kristin Eikaas has her hopes set on a new life in America.

 
The year is 1848, and Kristin Eikaas has traveled from Norway to Wisconsin with dreams of a new life. But when she arrives, she finds one disappointment after another. Worse, her superstitious uncle now believes that his neighbor’s Oneida Indian wife has put a curse on Kristin. Everyone knows the Sundbergs put spells on people…
 
Everyone except Kristin. Her run-ins with Sam Sundberg only prove that he is a good man from a Christian family. But when her uncle discovers she’s been associating with Sam, his temper flares. To escape his wrath, Kristin gratefully accepts a job as the Sundbergs’ house girl, finding solace at the family’s spinning wheel.
 
In the time Sam and Kristin spend together, their friendship develops into much more, and Sam prays about a match between them. But opposition threatens to derail their newfound love. Will they have the courage to stand up for what is right—even against their own families?

    In Threads of Hope Andrea Boeshaar tells the story of Norwegian immigrants and their arrival in America. Kristin is summoned to America by her uncle. His letters paint a picture of a beautiful place with ample opportunities to make a better life for anyone who wants it. Upon arriving in Wisconsin, though, Kristin realizes that her uncles letters were full of lies. When her family makes it clear that she is no longer welcome in their home, she must strike out on her own.

    Threads of Hope was a beautiful story. Kristin was an exceptional character one that I found myself rooting for from the very beginning. I loved the Sundberg family (and Sam, in particular). The children were great additions to the story . . . and a big part of Kristin's story, rather than secondary characters that float around in the background.

    Ms. Boeshaar's writing was amazing as well. There was a scene where Kristin has gone to work as a house girl for the Sundbergs. Because of the language barrier, she believes that she is to be a slave and wants to please them so badly. I felt such compassion for Kristin during that scene . . . I actually felt a tightness in my chest and just felt for her. I'm not sure exactly how to explain it but any book that can cause me to have a physical reaction is a well-written one for sure!

    I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series! [5 stars]

    I received a free copy from Realms Media and FIRST Wild Card Blog Tours in exchange for my fair and honest review.

    Kristin Eikaas struggles to find footing in America, after her family dies of the smallpox, in Norway. Coming to a new land has many challenges, one of them being her lazy uncle and his feud with his neighbors the Sundbergs. Another is her attraction to Sam Sundberg.

    At times the dialogue was stiffer than I would have liked, but that is my personal opinion. The story flowed along, and was easy to follow. I liked how one of the main messages, was about how prejudices can build rifts, and hurt not only other but also yourself. I enjoyed learning more about Wisconsin's journey to statehood.

    One of my favorite characters was Sam, because he knew who he was and what he wanted in life. He also knew what he didn't want. Plus he had faith and prayed over situations, trusting God to do what was best for his life.

    Overall, Threads of Hope is a romance about overcoming hardships and prejudices, with God's loving guidance. I would recommend it to people who are looking for a cross between a sweet romance and an emotional love story with heartaches. Thanks!

    I really enjoyed reading this book. The year is 1848 and Kristin Eikaas has just arrived in Wisconsin from Norway. Her Uncle Lars had written her and told her how wonderful living in America would be. She is now all alone, as her parents and brothers all died in the Small Pox epidemic two years prior.

    She shared her glowing letters of the life her Uncle pictured for her in the US with her best friends family. In the end the Olsteads, John and Peder, her friend Sylvia's father and brother decided to come with her. Her Uncle did remind her to bring his inheritance, the gold watch that had been her father's and grandfather's.

    Everything looks as Uncle Lar's had described, but he wasn't describing his own place, but the neighbors.

    There is bad blood between Lar's and Karl Sundberg, and he tells them that Karl's Indian wife puts curses on people. That is why they have nothing, and in reality you soon find out that Uncle Lar's is very lazy.

    The town does become torn apart, and even the Norwegian church is affected. Will God be able to soften their hearts, and will they remember the forgiveness that Jesus offered all? Will Kirsten and Karl's son Sam be able to work to a relationship between the two feuding families?

    Once you pick this book up, you won't be able to put it down!

    I received this book from the Publisher Reals, and was not required to give a positive review.
