I love the way history and how they lived while homesteading it portrayed in this series. A message is there for the readers and it is presented in an enjoyable way. Have trouble putting the book down at night. I pass them on to others once I have read them so they can continue to be enjoyed.
I'm sold on this series! It reminds me of the old TV mini-series, Centennial, that was so popular in the 1970s. A true saga of a family with all their trials and triumphs.
This is book 2 and it's every bit as good as the first one. Ingeborg Bjorklund is an easy heroine to love. She's no one-dimensional stick figure. Complicated and complex, she's a little bit of most of the women I know and admire. After the heartbreak and spiritual renewal in book 1, I was thrilled to cheer her on as she continued to scratch a living out of the thick North Dakota sod.
I love finding a series like this that is more than a decade old and completely written. No waiting for the next book to be published! Highly recommend... and moving on to book 3.
I enjoyed this book a lot, with historical background, Christian values, interesting, couldn't put it down type book. I passed it on and their comment was the same! Now, I need the next one in the series.
This is the 2nd of a six volume series called the Red River of the North, these are excellent books. Ingeborg is the source of courage that holds the family together in this book, she is an independent but loving woman, you will grow attached to the characters.
