A Harvest of Hope (Song of Blessing #2) by Lauraine Snelling

More Heartwarming Drama in the Song of Blessing Series
Just a few short weeks into her year-long nurse training assignment at the Blessing Hospital, Miriam Antonio is called home to Chicago, where her mother is gravely ill. With siblings to care for, Miriam pleads to be allowed to finish her training in Chicago. Her nursing supervisor grants her a brief reprieve but extracts a promise that Miriam will soon return to Blessing and fulfill her commitment.
While in Chicago, Miriam has tried to get Trygve Knutson and Blessing out of her mind, but his letters make that impossible. Trygve is busy building a house, hoping he can convince Miriam to return to North Dakota and marry him. Torn between Trygve's love and her family's needs, she doesn't know what to do.
When Miriam finally returns to Blessing, she buries herself in her work. But no matter how hard she tries to put it off, she has some life-changing decisions to make about her future, her family...and the man who is never far from her thoughts.
What will it take to convince her to stay?

My Review 

As the first book ended I couldn’t wait for this one to come along, and it didn’t disappoint. I still have some more questions that need answers, and again I need to wait.

Welcome back, yes, Miriam returns, Manny is blossoming, family is still dealing with their grief, and we meet new problems as life goes on in Blessing. So much has happened, and it continues in this faith-based community, the way these people rally around at times of disaster is remarkable. Lessons could be learned here.

We continue with Trygve and his wanting to spend his life with Miriam, but can she commit to him? She has so much responsibility on her shoulders, and we are with her as she tries to struggle with life problems. Will she be able to find love in Blessing?

Oh how I loved my visit her, and of course, there is always one who causes dissent, guess that is life. Find how this town deals with some of the hard parts of life.

I for one never wanted this book to end, and yet it became a page-turner to learn how things come out. Pick up this read; you will not be disappointed, only that it had to end.


I received this book through Bethany House Bloggers Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
