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?

    To Everything A Season***** by Lauraine Snelling

    Miriam Hastings leaves her home in Chicago to continue her nursing training in Blessings North Dakota, with doctors Elizabeth Bjorklund and Astrid Bjorklund Jeffers. Once she has finished her training she will be an accredited nurse and plans to work in a women's hospital in Chicago where she can help care for her ailing mother and siblings.

    Trygve Knutson has been helping to dig wells in the surrounding communities but is tired of all the traveling involved. He decides to stay home and work there to help his family and longs for a wife and family of his own.

    Plans don't always go as hoped for both Miriam and Trygve. Miriam is surprised that she actually enjoys the small town of Blessings. But how can she stay here when her family at home needs her? And what about Trygve, if she leaves will there be a change for them?

    I really enjoyed this story and the interaction between the characters. Romance is in the air for more than one couple. Surprises pop up to further enhance the story. Add to that a bit of danger, suspense and faith making this a memorable story.

    "To Everything a Season" is book one in the "Song of Blessing" series. Blessing is a small country town in North Dakota. The book is set in 1905, and Blessing has been settled with mostly Norwegian immigrants. They face trials of the times, struggling with issues of farming, bank robbers and lack of wells and English speaking workers.



    The town itself is a breath of fresh air, neighbors helping neighbors, children doing chores and obeying their elders, everyone going to church. The book is full of good old fashioned values! The two (female) doctors make house calls and care for everyone with love and compassion, from pregnant woman to bank robber. All are treated with respect.

    Lauraine Snelling is a great author and I have read many of her books. I did find this one to be a bit confusing. While it is book one in a new series, I think many of the characters are from a previous series, therefore, much of the book is spent learning who is who. The main character doesn't arrive in Blessing until near the end of the book. I found that unusual. "To Everything a Season" is a clean, easy read. I received this book from The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.

    The town of Blessing is growing faster than the houses can be built. As the towns people deal with the various issues that come with a rapidly growing town, a prominent family is also growing. Trygve is working on a well drilling crew. But when he feels God calling him to stay home in Blessing he returns to help his family and find his place in the town. He also meets a young woman that captures his heart.

    This is the first book in this series. Since I haven't read anything by this author I wanted to make sure I started at the beginning. But somehow I still picked up in the middle of a long story. The book begins with a massive family tree for the Bjorklund family. I also read that this is the 3rd Blessing series. So while this is the first book in this series, it isn't the first story about the family or town.

    While I was completely lost with all of the unfamiliar names and circumstances, I did enjoy the flow of the story. The author weaves a plot with lots of sub plots and extra details to keep the reader engaged. The book brought out several thought provoking issues surrounding Christianity that still pertain to today. The story didn't end, leaving it open for the next book in the series. Someone who enjoys family sagas will love this small town story. Just be sure to start at the very beginning so nothing is missed.

    I received this book free of charge from Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.

    A glimpse at what life was like in Blessing ND in 1905, where life was simple, and air was clean. People were very hard working, and it seemed that neighbors were there whenever there was a need. This is a predominately Norwegian community, and most have immigrated, and are helping others to come over, to where they can own land.

    We have a young man, Trygve Knutson, who has decided he is tired of traveling and come what may he wants to stay in one place, and that is Blessing. I loved the interaction he has with his Ante and Uncle, and would love to be in that family.

    Then we have a nursing student from Chicago who is being requested to go to Blessing to finish up her training. She is so torn, her father has died and her mother is very ill. She wants to be in two places at once, but her heart tells her that her family needs her. Her younger siblings were working, and helping bring in their meager earnings.

    The town of Blessing is expanding so much that they are running out of housing. With the expansion, there are a lot of new people and nationalities that end up there. Was really surprised, and yet shouldnt have been, how some of the natives of the town didnt support anyone else to have a freedom of religion.

    Will Miriam be able to come and take training? Will Trygve be able to leave the traveling job, when he is offered twice his salary to stay? These are just a few of the questions that will be answered beneath the covers of this great book.

    I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Bethany House, and was not required to give a positive review.
