From the Back Cover
With her younger brother Ivar in tow, Nilda Carlson is on her way to America to join her older brother Rune and his family in the northern forests of Minnesota. While she sees this as a golden opportunity, she has enough experience in life to know it won't be easy. The transatlantic voyage itself proves to be an adventure, and she hopes she will feel safe in her new home.
Rune and Signe Carlson are thrilled that Nilda and Ivar are coming to Minnesota, but life on the Strand farm remains a struggle. Rune is trying to build a house for his wife and children, but Uncle Einar Strand, obsessed with his own ambitions, refuses to help. What's more, he forbids anyone from the community to step foot on his land, leaving Rune to toil on his own. When a tragedy lays bare the truth behind Einar's anger and isolation, the Carlsons and Strands will have to come together like never before to become a true family.
"Readers are treated to an immersive immigrant experience from homeland to homesickness and every step along the way in this second installment of the Under Northern Skies series. . . . Snelling's skillful storytelling and attention to detail showcase her affection for her characters' personalities and Norwegian heritage. With increasing involvement in the community and hints of future romance, a true sense of new beginnings and renewed hope compels readers forward in this traditional historical saga."--RT Book Reviews --This text refers to the paperback edition.

like very detailed information about the ocean crossing and the horrible conditions in steerage voyages.This is not a romance novel like other books of this author. I do not think it is her best work.
Every good story has conflict and this story has a two legged, Swedish one. He’s the head of the family and one of the most unpleasant characters I’ve met in a very long time. Unraveling the mystery of his nastiness is 🔑 to the greatness of this volume. You’ll wish him ill, you’ll pray he’s reformed - all within a few pages of each other. It’s been a long time since a character raised this much emotion, good and bad, from me.
Snelling is a consummate historical fiction writer. There’s no need to fear language, violence or sexual content. “A Breath of Hope” is a great book and has me hooked enough to investigate book 3 in this series.
