To Everything a Season by Lauraine Snelling - Review of the first book in the Song of Blessing series

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?

I have been reading about the Bjorklund's and the town of Blessing, ND as long as Lauraine has been writing about them, this is the fifth series now and I can honestly say that I enjoyed this book just as much, if not more than, I did the very first book! I don't know how else I can express my view except to say that if I have stuck with this 'family/town' that long, 16 books so far, this being the 17th with 2 more to go, they have to be amazing.

The conclusion of this book will bring tears to your eyes and I am SOOOOO glad that I have the second book already, "A Harvest of Hope", so I can start reading it immediately. Oh yes, you will want to have it on hand so you can just move right along with this story. If you have not  read any of the series connected to this one, look Lauraine's name up and start at the beginning, it will be well worth your time!
