Publisher's Summary

Ever so slowly, Dakota Territory is being transformed from a vast prairie into rich farmland. With the coming of the railroad, the small town of Blessing begins to prosper, and the Bjorklund family is reaping the promised harvest that had lured them from their beloved home in Norway.

But for Ingeborg and Haakan, realizing their dreams will not come without a struggle. After their own fields are harvested, Haakan and the neighboring men take the steam engine and the separator on the road, threshing for other homesteaders in return for a portion of their grain. With Haakan away and the fields standing idle, Ingeborg frets over work yet to be done. Fearing an early change of seasons, she takes matters into her own hands.

Has the land become more important to Ingeborg than her own family?

    Story
    "Meaty, warm saga of prairie life"

    This book is part of a series which became a series of series. I have read or listened to the entire saga and it wouldn't let me go. This is my second round and it is every bit as good as the first. This is one of my qualifications for a 5-star book.

    The settlement of Blessing is taking shape. They now have a school, a church, a general store, a blacksmith and a railroad runs through it. More people, some family, have immigrated from Norway, an old woman of French Canadian-Native American ancestry has brought her healing skills to the community full time. Others have travelled from Missouri and instead of passing through have found a home. These are the bare bones, but the stories are much, much more. I highly recommend it.

    I gave the narration 4-stars simply because she read very fast. I tried to slow the narration (a first for me), but 25% slower was too slow. She has a pleasant voice and told the story well.
