To Everything a Season
Trygve Knutson is devoted to his family and his community. With his job on the construction crew, he is helping to build a future for the North Dakota town of Blessing. Though he loves his home, he sometimes dreams of other horizons--especially since meeting Miriam Hastings.
Miriam is in Blessing to get practical training to become an accredited nurse. She's been promised a position in the Chicago women's hospital that will enable her to support her siblings and her ailing mother. Although eager to return to her family, Miriam is surprised to find how much she enjoys the small town of Blessing. And her growing attachment to Trygve soon has her questioning a future she always considered set in stone. When a family emergency calls Miriam home sooner than planned, will she find a way to return? If not, will it mean losing Trygve--and her chance at love--for good?
Cafe Lily's Review:
I have always enjoyed Lauraine's books. To Everything A Season is the first book in her new Song of Blessing series. I found this book interesting and easy to read. Some repeat characters show up in this book from her Home To Blessing series, but I did not find the story hard to follow at all. The characters are entertaining and believable and the author's writing is vivid and easy to imagine in my mind, as I read. The end of the book left me hanging a bit - it will be hard to wait on the second book.
