With a rich, detailed depiction about life on the Great Plains in a growing town, this series starter features Miriam, a nursing student with big city dreams & family obligations, & Trygve, a construction worker, & the lives of their neighbors in their North Dakotan town.

This series seems to be centering around Trygve Knutson, son of Lars and Kaaren Knutson (which are part of the original settlers to Blessing, North Dakota). Trygve is "love struck" upon meeting one of the student nurses who arrived off the train at Blessing, a Miss Miriam Hastings. Miriam is in Blessing as part of becoming an accredited nurse and then returning home to her ailing mother and her siblings in Chicago. Miriam will discover the beauty of Blessing, and what it is like to begin to fall in love. But this story is not without its tragedy (get your Kleenex handy, especially if you have followed these folks from the beginning). I always enjoy my stay in the Red River Valley and visiting with the growing town and the wonderful people who founded this place. ( )

I was gifted a copy of this book at the recent ACFW conference! What a GREAT perk! I was not required to review it but I love to review books so I’m going to!

First I will say; this book is nothing like any other I have ever read… ever!


WOW!

I thought I was reading about a much earlier time period but party lines and going after the vote is so much more familiar to me than most of the historicals I’ve picked up recently… (Yes, it also makes me feel old to admit that.)

Even having a gift with languages, I don’t think I could have kept up with this story so easily if Lauraine Snelling were not such a great story-teller!

What a wonderful idea for a story!

And what a wonderful author Lauraine Snelling is!

No other author I know of pulls off making the story about more than just the main characters quite so well (well maybe one other but I won’t name-bomb Lauraine’s review – if you wanna know, send me a message and I’ll tell you)

Suffice to say, this is a book worth reading and I know I’m excited for #2!

How about you?

When I started reading the story, I felt a little disorientated and I wasn’t sure why so I went to read some reviews that I hoped would give me a better foothold on the novel. I found a well written review that shared that this new series helps includes some characters originally introduced to the audience in the Red River of the North series.
Now, if you’re like me having never read the series, don’t despair. As long as you understand where some characters were originally introduced along with knowing that this is a story of immigrants settling in the town of Blessing, you’ll be fine. For me, I hope to read the Red River series someday as I thoroughly enjoy Lauraine’s writings. The novels come alive in readers’ minds with each page turned and are filled with a community of people who go beyond their own lives to help reach or care for people coming into the established community.
It was interesting to see as the town of Blessing grew and other nationalities came to the area to live or just work seasonal jobs the effects it had on people who loved there a long time like when an Anglican priest came to Blessing due to his horse becoming lame and he needed to work to replenish his funds before traveling. For so long there was only the Lutheran pastor who was attempting to gain peoples’ support to build a second church even though the response was less than enthusiastic.
Now a young man has become smitten with an Irish lass who is working at the hospital in Blessing for further training before exams. However, when her mother’s health begins to fail, she vows to never return to Blessing as she must stay in Chicago and care for her younger siblings. There are multitudes of happenings going on in the town as well as individual and family lives.
The novel was so enjoyable to read and hard to put down as the characters seem so lifelike. It was easy to get attached to the small town’s inhabitants. I cannot wait to read the sequel just released titled, A Harvest of Hope. There are some interesting relationships that are blossoming and I am eager to see how the author brings the various characters and town happenings together.

To Everything A Season is part of the Bjorklund family saga that is covered in five series of stories. All of these are historical fiction with some romance included in many of the tales. The Song of Blessing series is the fifth Bjorklund family series. I like to think of it as a two-in-one series because it wraps up the previous series' loose ends as well as begins a new series about the Bjorklunds in Blessing, North Dakota. It is able to stand on its own, although I think it would be appreciated best if read along with its predecessors. This book came out in 2014 and the second book in the new series, A Harvest of Hope, has just been released (2015). This book is a springboard for the next book which will be more about Trygve and Miriam.

The main theme in this book is about community and about the ones who make this community special. Since this is a series that continues the Bjorklund saga, attention is focused on an elderly couple whose legacy includes the community of Blessing, populated by Ingaborg and Haakan's large family and their friends. There are numerous subplots and threads because the community is growing by leaps and bounds.

One of the unusual things about this thriving North Dakota village is its hospital. There were not many hospitals available in remote areas in the early 1900's. This one is very new and run by two female doctors, Dr. Ingrid Bjorklund Jeffers and Dr. Elizabeth Bjorklund, the senior Bjorklund's daughter and daughter-in-law. Dr. Elizabeth was trained in Chicago and returned to open this one in her remote town mostly supported by the Chicago parent hospital. Much of the action in this story centers around the doctors, patients and the burgeoning community.

In one of the subplots, the Chicago hospital has sent three nurses-in-training out to the Blessing hospital for a year of hands-on experience. One of Ingaborg's nephews, Trygve Knutson, became smitten with one of the nurses, Miriam Hastings. Their relationship blossomed quickly until an event at the hospital contributed to a misunderstanding between them. The books ends with a cliff-hanger and the realization that their story would continue in another book.

One of the things that stands out most to me is how well the author built a community to which I became attached quickly. As I read the story, there were many hints of a back story that sounded intriguing and which engendered a desire to look up all the former books of the series and read them. I also sensed a closure to an era of Bjorklunds that centered around one couple, one family, and the beginning of a new era fitting for a new community filled with young families with new challenges to face. There's the aura of a passing of the baton. It draws me in, anticipating the new series.

With great character development, a sense of community to love, a bright future ahead, living and breathing faith that transcends mere words, this is a series and book I highly recommend to you.

The opinions I have expressed are my own.
