    This review was written for Untamed Land, An - eBook.
    I wasn't sure what to expect from this book. I'm reading the series on the recommendation - and loan - from a friend. But wow... I didn't expect the grittiness within these pages.

    The raw emotions, the struggles, the realities of life with no sugar coating to glaze them over. This is powerful reading. It's the type of book where you want to have the next one in the series sitting next to you when you finish the one you're reading. This isn't a simple "happily ever after" type of story. It more real than that.

    I highly recommend this book to people who like historical fiction, well researched and true to its time period. Set in North Dakota in the 1880s, Lauraine Snelling paints a picture of hardship, sacrifice, and triumph over the untamed prairie. But it's not without cost.

    Ingeborg Bjorklund immigrates from Norway with her husband, his son, his brother and sister-in-law. They make their way to the plains of North Dakota and find a land that will work as hard to break them as they work to tame the land.

    Got this free ebook and I am hooked. Since then bought the rest of this series and plan to get the next series continuing the legacy. Books are filled with hardship, triumph and God's unfailing love as the immigrants make a life in the Dakota territories. Author brings each character to life with their own personalities, struggles, and accomplishments. Can't say enough good about this book.

    This book tells of the struggles and heartbreaks that the immigrants who came to the US had. It is very touching how everyone works together to better themselves and their families.

    Loved it

    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.
