What a great book this was! I loved watching Thorliff all grown up in this series after watching him growing up in the first series, "red river of the north." I really loved he and Elizabeth's story! I am looking forward to the next series already, daughters of blessing. Lauraine Snelling has done such an awesome job with these books, with god and family the center of them! Like I have with all of the books in both Red River series I've read, I would totally recommend these books to people that ...more
Another book read to the wife. She loves to be read to, she always has. Reading is one of the few things that we can do together.

This is the third book in the series dealing with Thorliff's dream of becoming a writer. Many things happen in this book. Elizabeth graduates from college and goes back to Chicago for another internship, where it is announced that the hospital will sponsor a medical school and that Elizabeth, if she will commit, will be enrolled as a second year student. She does and
LOVE LOVE LOVE Snelling's work! This was an awesome end to the trilogy! Highly recommend this author

This book wraps up the Red River series, both Red River of the North and Return to Red River. Oh my, I have watched this family as they forged their way to America from Norway, struggled through so many hardships, buried loved ones, had babies, built the town of Blessing, ND. And now all the little ones have grown up and are marrying and having children of their own, while the town continues to grow and progress. It's been quite a journey for the Bjorklund's, their extended family and friends. A ...more
wonderful book. Kept you hanging at the end wanting to know what was next for the new couple.
This series was loaded with surprises and heartaches. You can't help
but feel for the families involved and encouraged when the characters
are experiencing good times and successes. I find myself skipping ahead
to a chapter when there is a climax in Blessing or a Cliff hanger
in Northfield. Elizabeth struggles as does Thorliff with their
studies in their career choices. Once you have read the other two
in this Series you have to read this one to find out the outcome of
Elizabeth and Thorliff choices.

This book is still following Thorliff's journey but introduces a lovely character compassionate for women's health needs. Elizabeth has a heart for saving women from dying from childbirth. Can a newspaper writer and a young woman who wants to become a doctor during the turn of the century have a future together? Hmmm.
Really enjoyed this series. I enjoyed getting to know the characters also a humbling reminder of just how fortunate we are today with our modern conveniences.
A; Wahoo! Thorliff and Elizabeth finally get together at the end of the story. Now I feel better finishing the Daughters of Blessing series knowing what I'd missed.
This is a really good book
Snelling is one of my favorite authors. I always enjoy reading her books.
Great stories about town of Blessing. I enjoyed the characters and the plot.
