Publisher's Summary

The Bjorklund family has received word that Augusta Bjorklund is on her way from Norway to join them in North Dakota. When the train arrives in the town of Blessing with no Augusta aboard, the worried family hopes that she will be on the train in the morning. However, only her trunk arrives, so Bridget Bjorklund insists that Hjelmer, Augusta's brother, go find her.

Augusta, after discovering that her intended bridegroom had married someone else, decided to leave her broken heart in Norway and start a new life in America. But knowing no English, Augusta misunderstands a ticket agent's directions in St. Paul, Minnesota, and in the harried confusion she boards the wrong train. When she arrives at the end of the line, she is met by a handsome young rancher, Kane Moyer, waiting for his Norwegian mail-order bride....

    Story
    "I love this series but the narrator was awful"
    What did you love best about Blessing in Disguise?

    I love this series. I've read it totally thought 2 times. I needed something to listen to while I was working on a big project so I have gone through the first 6 books. The narration is tolerable because the story is so good but OMG. She goes between accents with no consistency, she is so monotone it's painful at times. If you love Laruaine Snellings writing you can get through it but just know its not good. I prefer when the actual author narrates.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story of these people coming to america and forming the town of Blessing is so sweet. I love every character and Lauraine Snelling brings them to life in such a way I want to crawl in the books and live there. I love would a movie but I know Hollywood would butcher it. Sweet escape to a lovely place


    Would you be willing to try another one of Callie Beaulieu’s performances?

    NEVER


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Too many to list

    Story
    "Horrible narrator"

    I don't mean to be mean, but seriously, this narrator was intolerable. I could not even get through the 2nd chapter. Her monotone voice did not allow me to even get into the story. I'm spoiled to listening to Pam Ward and others like her that are obviously "professional narrators." Again, I don't mean to hurt feelings.

    Story
    "Eh"

    I couldn't get through this!The narrator was not my favorite. I found myself correcting her inflections in my head. Also, she was kind of monotone. I'm not sure if there are other books in this series? Because I came into it utterly confused. The story had some potential, and I normally love Loraine Snelling's books, but this one didn't seem to move along. I felt like the main characters were not the main characters because everyone else was featured so strongly.

    "I couldn't put this one down"

    Although this was a bit of a stretch to be believable, the author succeeded in getting me hooked and not wanting to put the book down, or turn it off, since this is an audible book.

    Story
    "The part of the story with Agusta and Cain held my interest the rest, not so much."

    The story was only 1/3rd about August and Cain. The rest didn't hold my interest. Wouldn't recommend it.
