A Harvest of Hope by Lauraine Snelling A REVIEW

Miriam Hastings has her future plans in place...
But Trygve Knutson is intent on changing them.

Just a few short weeks into her year-long training at the Blessing Hospital, Miriam Hastings is called home to Chicago, where her mother is gravely ill. With siblings to care for, Miriam pleads to be allowed to finish her training in Chicago. Her nursing supervisor grants her a brief reprieve but extracts a promise that Miriam will return to Blessing and fulfill her one-year commitment.

While in Chicago, Miriam has tried to get Trygve Knutson and Blessing out of her mind, but his letters make that impossible. Trygve is busy building a house, hoping he can convince Miriam to return to North Dakota and marry him. Torn between Trygve's love and her family's needs, she doesn't know what to do.

When Miriam finally returns to Blessing, she buries herself in her work. But no matter how hard she tries to put it off, she has some life-changing decisions to make about her future, her family... and the man who is never far from her thoughts.

What will it take to convince her to stay?

  I have always loved books by Lauraine Snelling and A Harvest of Hope is another fantastic read. I must warn you if you haven’t read any of Lauraine’s books in the town of Blessing, North Dakota you may get lost with all of the people and things they are talking about. Even though this book is the 2nd book in the Song of Blessing series it takes a lot from other books that Lauraine wrote years ago.
Here are all of the books that happen in Blessing:
Bjorklund Family Novels & Series
An Untamed Heart (prequel to the Red River of the North series. October 2013)

Red River of the North series (First Bjorklund family series)
An Untamed Land
A New Day Rising
A Land To Call Home
The Reaper’s Song
Tender Mercies
Blessing In Disguise

Return To Red River series (Second Bjorklund family series)
A Dream To Follow
Believing The Dream
More Than A Dream

Daughters of Blessing series (Third Bjorklund family series)
(This series has limited print availability but is available in e-book format)
A Promise for Ellie
Sophie’s Dilemma
A Touch of Grace
Rebecca’s Reward

Home to Blessing series (Fourth Bjorklund family series)
A Measure of Mercy
No Distance Too Far
A Heart for Home

Song of Blessing series (Fifth Bjorklund family series)
To Everything A Season
A Harvest of Hope (Spring, 2015)

I have always loved the town of Blessing and all of the wonderful characters who are so loving and kind. How they help each other in pain, heartache and just share their joys. I think you will really love it, but I recommend that you read the books in the series first. Very good stories.
