Item description for The Promise Of Dawn (Under Northern Skies #1)-Soft by Lauraine Snelling...

Overview
Beloved Author Lauraine Snelling Launches New Immigrant Series

When Signe, her husband, Rune, and their three boys arrive in Minnesota from Norway to help a relative clear his land of lumber, they dream of owning their own farm and building a life in the New World. But Uncle Einar and Aunt Gird are hard, demanding people, and Signe and her family soon find themselves worked nearly to the bone in order to repay the cost of their voyage. At this rate, they will never have land or a life of their own.

Signe tries to trust God but struggles with anger and bitterness. She has left behind the only life she knew, and while it wasn't an easy life, it wasn't as hard as what she now faces. When a new addition to the family arrives, Signe begins to see how God has been watching over them throughout their ordeal. But after all that has happened, can she still believe in the promise of a bright future?

Reviews - What do customers think about The Promise Of Dawn (Under Northern Skies #1)-Soft?

Joy In the Morning  Oct 2, 2017
I absolutely love this stunning new novel! It reminds me of Ecclesiastes 4, how if one falls, the other will lift him up, and the threefold cord is hard to break. That is what I saw in action with Rune and his wife Signe. Even if one loses faith for a time, another is faithful to help that one back to the cord that is secure. I was drawn in from the first page and my only letdown was turning the final page. Each well-rounded character is drawn with care, and descriptions of both Norway and America sing with beauty. It was a delight to read about more of the Carlson and Strand family members who leave Norway for the North Central United States. In early 1909, Gunlaug is looking forward to her son Johann’s imminent wedding when she receives a letter from their cousin Einar in Minnesota. He asks the impossible. Due to his wife’s illness, he needs help felling trees and growing his farm. He would pay the passage for one of her sons and his family to would move across the ocean, help him with the logging and farming to pay for their passage, perhaps giving them a portion of his land to live on and farm. Rune, the least strong son, wants to go to work. His wife, Signe, has had much heartache and loss, so separating her from her family is heartbreaking. He still chooses to take Signe and their three sons, knowing they will probably never see their Norwegian family again in this life. In Minnesota, they are met with a grumpy man, sleeping on the floor in the parlor as the ladder to the attic room is too precarious, and a bedbound woman who screeches for her needs. The house is laden with dust, filthy laundry, and mice. Each takes on their assigned tasks to give them their all, receiving no thanks or encouragement. Signe, becoming pregnant just before they left Norway, must take care of the house and Gerd, Einar’s wife. Their sons take care of the livestock, their oldest son working long days felling trees with his father. Rune feels his faulty vision slowly worsening, yet he works as hard, as the rest. Signe scrubs the house from walls to floors to cabinets. They endure Einar’s barely controlled fits of anger regularly. I have new respect for those who came here in search of a better life! I knew they worked impossibly long, hard hours to survive, but what the Strands endure as they work for Einar and Gerd is unimaginable. They work seven days a week, no time off for church or a Sabbath rest. When one family member is badly injured when working, Einar’s anger turns to rage. Letters from home help, but nothing staves off the isolation that Signe suffers with. Each family member draws deep within, drawing strength from God. I like Signe, and might not have been as kind as her! I grew to like Gerd, but couldn’t begin to like Einar. Plot twists continually change the novel. Some bring peace, some bring further pain. One thing is clear from the prayers of Rune and Signe; they grow in the secure knowledge that the Lord will take care of them, even when threatened with losing lives. The author elicits gentle humor, feeling Einar’s rage even as a reader, and awe at the splendor of God’s creation. I heartily recommend this fabulous first in the new Under the Northern Skies series, to adults of any age and older teens who enjoy Christian women’s historical fiction. This is a not-to-be-missed novel! From a grateful heart: I was given this eBook by the publisher through a Goodreads giveaway and here is my honest review.
