After two long years, hardworking dairy farmer Andrew Bjorklund is thrilled to see his fiancée, Ellie Wold, again.

Soon a tragedy threatens their future and forces them to fully rely on God.

Not the 1st in the Series

When I ordered this book I did not realize that it was the 3rd or 4th in the Blessing series. Fortunately, I had already read the previous books awhile back and understood most of the references. If you like Snelling, you'll like this book.

Great Book

I really enjoyed this book. I haven't listened to any of the others in this series, but it stands well on its own. The narrator is good, too.
