Product Description

Trygve Knutson has been promoted from well drilling to heading a construction crew for the fast growing town of Blessing, North Dakota. Though devoted to the land and his family, he sometimes dreams of other horizons. But is he willing to leave Blessing permanently?

Miriam Francini hopes to become an accredited nurse in a large city hospital. She is simply tolerating her assignment at the hospital in rural Blessing because it will give her the experience she needs to accomplish her goal. She can't wait to finish her training and head to New York to begin a nursing career. Then Miriam meets Trygve Knutson and all her plans are suddenly in a jumble. She quickly realizes she doesn't want to live without him, yet she's a smart, independent woman--she's even a suffragette. She can't let anything get in the way of her own plans, even if she's in love. Or can she?

Publisher's Description

Beloved Author Lauraine Snelling Returns Again to Her Popular Red River Valley Setting

Trygve Knutson is devoted to his family and his community. With his job on the construction crew, he is helping to build a future for the North Dakota town of Blessing. Though he loves his home, he sometimes dreams of other horizons--especially since meeting Miriam Hastings.

Miriam is in Blessing to get practical training to become an accredited nurse. She's been promised a position in the Chicago women's hospital that will enable her to support her siblings and her ailing mother. Although eager to return to her family, Miriam is surprised to find how much she enjoys the small town of Blessing. And her growing attachment to Trygve soon has her questioning a future she always considered set in stone.

When a family emergency calls Miriam home sooner than planned, will she find a way to return? If not, will it mean losing Trygve--and her chance at love--for good?

    A Continuation and Nice Introduction

    To Everything a Season by Lauraine Snelling is the first in her Song of Blessing series. At first I was a bit thrown off by this story as even though it is the start of a new series, it really was more of a continuation of her previous series dealing with the town of Blessing and the Red River Valley. We dont even meet the main characters of this book till much later. I have not read the previous series by Ms. Snelling and that being said this book still ended up being an enjoyable read for me. After I had become acquainted with the characters in the town of Blessing (she has a very nice, exhaustive family tree in the beginning) I really could see what a great story teller she is and why she continues in her Red River Valley series. So if you are already a Lauraine Snelling fan or this is your first time reading something of hers, I think this is a good book to pick up. The fans will enjoy meeting up with favorite characters and new fans will want to go back and read about the families from the beginning. I received this book from The Book Club Network, Inc. and the opinions stated are my own.

    To Everything A Season is the first book in the Song of Blessing series and is a continuation of other stories set in Blessings, North Dakota. It focused on the Bjorklund family. I found it to be an enjoyable read about family, faith and friends. I liked the characters and the simple family life set in a beautiful area telling about the beginning and start of a new town.

    I was given a copy from The Book Club Network (bookfun.org) for my honest opinion which I have given.

    Miriam is training to be a nurse and is assigned to a hospital in the small town of Blessing, North Dakota in 1905. She leaves her widowed mother in poor health and in the care of Miriams five younger siblings. Even though her mother trusts God, Miriam feels like God has ignored her family who lives in poverty since her fathers death.

    After living in a tenement in Chicago, Miriam loves the freshness, quiet and peace in Blessing. Trygve Knutson falls in love with Miriam at first sight when she arrives in Blessing but she has her obligations in Chicago and does not share his faith in God.

    This book continues the story of the Bjorklund Family from Lauraine Snellings Red River books. I read these several years ago but I still had difficulty keeping track of all the family members. I enjoyed the book and do recommend it to others. Although it can be read as a stand alone book, I believe you will enjoy it more if you read Red River of the North, Home to Blessing and Return to Red River series first.

    Lauraine Snelling's first novel in the Song of Blessing series, 'To Every Season', is amazing! The Bjorklund family's lives and friends are interwoven throughout this and Ms. Snelling's other Red River Valley novels. This saga begins in 1905 in Blessing, North Dakota. Much of it is centered on Haakan and Ingeborg Bjorklund, their nephew Trygve Knutson, and the doctors at the hospital. Haakan is recovering from a stroke. His wife Ingeborg continues with her cheese business, helping at the hospital, and caring for her beloved husband. Their daughter Astrid is a doctor, running the hospital and practice with her sister-in-law Elizabeth, also a doctor. Astrid recently married Daniel Jeffers; her brother Thorliff is married to Elizabeth. Elizabeth, Thorliff, and their daughter Inga live in the building with the doctors' office.

    The hospital trains and gives the staff a place to live. Student nurses come from other areas to complete their training. After a robbery in which the thieves were nearly caught, the youngest of the McCrary brothers gang, Manny, is taken to the hospital with a badly broken leg. They learned in his delirium that he was only 12, his mother died, he knew what his brothers did was wrong but didn't know how to get away from them. With the Lord's help and direction, Astrid did a risky surgery hoping to avoid life-threatening infection and amputation of the youth's leg. Annika, a student nurse, refreshed Astrid's faith, leading her to remember that "He is God's child, the same as we." To me, that is one of the great quotes of the book! Now, if they can save his life, what to do with the young bandit?

    Miriam Hastings, a student nurse, is at the hospital in Blessing to complete her training and planning to return to Chicago to take care of her family. Trygve was completely besotted with Miriam from the first time he laid eyes on her, and tried to court her. They had differences about faith, and Miriam feels there is no future for them. Will they meet again after she returns home for a family emergency?

    Elizabeth, who had difficult pregnancies resulting in miscarriages, becomes pregnant again and will have to stop working. Astrid is concerned for Elizabeth's health, as well as overwhelmed with the knowledge of the upcoming workload.

    I love this book! This reader felt welcomed into the Bjorklund family from the first page, thoroughly immersed in the joys and worries, lives and deaths in Blessing. The men and women are strong, likable, and three-dimensional folks. They do not shrink from adversity; it is ingrained in their characters to love God, be responsible, care for their families and help their neighbors. The women are creative, innovative, and intelligent; they do not neglect their children or home to follow their calling or manage a family business. Conversations are satisfying, not stilted or dry. It is demonstrated as vital between friends, loved ones, and co-workers in a day when there is no television, iPhone, Gameboy, or other distraction. One such conversation takes place between Ingeborg and Haakan after his second stroke, in which he reassures Ingeborg of his faith in Jesus and his love for their life together, with Ingeborg receiving them as a gift: "For a man of few words, he had just poured the gift of his thoughts into the reservoir of her heart, for her to take out and remember when she needed them."

    Lauraine Snelling is a gifted author who understands the intricacies of faith, family, emotional and spiritual needs, and the values of those she writes about and for. She serves the Lord through fiction, as she points to the Lord simply by demonstrating the faith - or the faith struggles - of her characters. This novel is incredibly well-written, and the only areas left unresolved are those will be the basis for the 2nd book in the series. She brings a town of individuals together into families and friends with faith, grace and dignity. I am now one of the many thousands of readers who love Blessing, North Dakota and the Red River Valley, and I highly recommend To Everything a Season to adults of any age and older teens who have read and loved other books by this writer, to those who appreciate magnificently descriptive writing in historical novels of faith and life.

    With a grateful heart, I received a copy of this book through the "For Readers Only" group at The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own, and no monetary compensation was received for this review.

    The quiet, resilient people of Blessing know many seasons.

    Seasons of rejoicing, and of mourning. Seasons of sowing and of reaping. Seasons of tearing and of mending.

    To Everything a Season.

    This book has a cast of colorful characters: salt of the earth citizenry, a band of would-be bank robbers, lady doctors with strong wills and kind hands, prayerful old Grannies, and hopeful young couples.

    People live and die here in Blessing, surrounded by a place they call Home and people who care.

    They make good and bad choices- they come together to help each other and they split apart.

    The children play and grow, the older people tend the land that sustains them.

    There's a dash of danger, a scoop of drama, much fellowship, and many home-and-hearth moments. By the end of this tale you'll agree that "This was surely a Blessing town."

    This is the first book I've read by Lauraine Snelling, but I understand there is a many-volume series from years ago also set in the area of Blessing. I can see why this saga has loyal readers.
