The book was an excellent depiction of the struggles of immigrants settling on the frontier. From the time they left Norway, their daily lives were full of struggles and hardships but still they perserved.
Being born of Norwegian immigrants myself, I could relate to many of their ways. The foods they made, the way the neighbors all helped each other during harvest time, their traditions, even the family names are all in my genealogy. What a pleasure to read! Lauraine Snelling captured the lifestyle and ways of the Norwegian immigrants perfectly. I look forward to reading all of her books.
I have enjoyed all of Lauraine Snelling's books that I have read, and loved this one. I really like how the author weaves values and Christian living into a great book. I'm really looking forward to reading the rest of the series!
