The Long-Awaited Prequel to the Red River of the North Series

Twenty-year-old Ingeborg Strand is certain she is destined to be an old maid. It’s not that she’s lacked suitors, but now she no longer can have the one she loved.

With the future looking bleak, her mother suggests that she leave Norway and start afresh in America, as so many others have done before her. But how will she accomplish that with little money and no one to accompany her?

Roald Bjorklund is a widower who has been planning to go to America, lured by the promise of free land. He’s a good man, a hard-working man–with a young son who desperately needs a mother. Ingeborg can tell Roald is interested in her, but what about love? This isn’t how she’s always imagined it.

Ingeborg Strand has a heartrending decision to make…

My Thoughts:

Though I haven’t read any of the books in the Red River of the North series, I really enjoyed this book. I think it is a really good opening to a series even though it did come after the other books were all published.

Ingeborg is a really lovable character and the book was written in such a way that you can almost feel the emotions that she goes through during the time that the book was written.

After having read this book, I now plan on getting the other books in the series as soon as possible.

Lauraine Snelling has been one of my favorite authors ever since I read the first book that I got my hands on of hers. She writes with a lot of passion and feeling, which I believe a lot of authors don’t , and it makes for a book that you can read over and over again.

Other books in this series:

  1. An Untamed Land
  2. A New Day Rising
  3. A Land to Call Home
  4. The Reapers’ Song
  5. Tender Mercies
  6. Blessing in Disguise
