A love story set in God's love, a God loving community, made up of families who loved God & raised their families in His love. A story of how we can wrong God, others, & ourselves when we turn our backs on His teachings. A story of God's forgiveness when we turn back to Him...& how hard we find it to extend that forgiveness, which we receive so freely, to others, esp. without His help.
This is a love story between the 2 main characters, but it's so much more. No smut. Just honest people making honest attempts to be more like their Savior every day.
THAT'S a love story!
This story showed families dealing with severe obstacles and learning how to deal with them & be supportive of one another. Very refreshing.
After reading each story I can't wait to get started on the next since the lives of each character intertwines with everyone in Blessing. Promise for Elle is the story of love, life, and plans for her future with Andrew Bjorklund at the turn of the century.
I admire the work ethic and sacrifices portrayed in these series. I cry when a baby is lost, a beloved member of this community passes away, or old age comes to take someone home. Reality in it's truest sense. God fearing people who help each other at all times.
Lauraine Snelling has done her utmost to give readers an inside look from that time period, starting in Norway with the early Immigrants sailing to America who settle in North Dakota in the early 1800's. Following the lives of the Bjorklund's is one amazing journey.
If you like Historical novels I'm certain you will fall in love with the Bjorklund heritage.
He attacked Toby and almost killed him. Andrew was arrested and had to wait to see if Toby would recover. Did Toby get better? Did Andrew get of jail and did he marry Ellie? I think you'll enjoy this book to find out the answers.
