Beloved Author Lauraine Snelling Returns Again to Her Popular Red River Valley Setting

Trygve Knutson is devoted to his family and his community. With his job on the construction crew, he is helping to build a future for the North Dakota town of Blessing. Though he loves his home, he sometimes dreams of other horizons--especially since meeting Miriam Hastings.

Miriam is in Blessing to get practical training to become an accredited nurse. She's been promised a position in the Chicago women's hospital that will enable her to support her siblings and her ailing mother. Although eager to return to her family, Miriam is surprised to find how much she enjoys the small town of Blessing. And her growing attachment to Trygve soon has her questioning a future she always considered set in stone.

When a family emergency calls Miriam home sooner than planned, will she find a way to return? If not, will it mean losing Trygve--and her chance at love--for good?

Blessings to Come: Hope for Miriam and Trygve by Mary Y on 11/16/14

If you are a fan of Lauraine Snelling and if you have enjoyed the story town of Blessing, North Dakota, you will certainly enjoy this book. No 1 in the “Song of Blessing” saga, Trygve Knutson is grown and working hard for the future of his community. Far Haaken, one of the main characters in the Red River Valley stories, is getting older and his wife is very concerned about some symptoms he is having. Both daughter and daughter-in-law are physicians, but although his wife would like one of them to check him over, there is thought that this would be strange and unacceptable to him. In Chicago, Illinois, there is a young nurse in training who has been selected to go to Blessing to continue learning under the two women doctors before graduating. It is a struggle to leave her ill mother and other siblings that she has been helping to provide for. But, God is in control as He intervenes in making the plan work for her family. After Miriam arrives in North Dakota, she sees many new things for the first time in a small town. But her heart is still pulling her back to her mother in the city. Will she ever be able to trust God and see her future anywhere else beside Chicago? She gets on the train to return when she hears her mother may be dying, but will she ever come back? Someone is waiting to find out.

Good book but hard to follow if you haven't read the other books! by BookJunkie on 11/8/14

I want to start off by saying that the cover of this book is stunning! The detail and beauty of it is exquisite! Also, the title "To Everything a Season" fits just right for this book. This book is set in Blessing, North Dakota in 1905. One thing I was not expecting was that it is about the whole town, the back of this book eludes to the fact that it is centered around Trygve and Miriam, the hero doesn't show up in the book until chapter five and the heroine a bit later. There are two doctors in the town of Blessing, Astrid and Elizabeth, whom have their own books/stories written before this series, because of their work it gave the book a bit of excitement. Although toward the end it did get a bit slower. Ingeborg, who also had her own series, had an amazing faith. She was constantly praying for God's will and trusting and following His leading. She was an amazing woman! I loved all the characters and the whole town.
One thing I would like to say something about is this really didn't read like a first book to a new series. Because of this I felt a tad bit left behind when the book started. But it wasn't all bad, it just seemed like it needed something to make it seem more like the start of a new series. The end of the book was sad, but like the title explains there is a season for everything and that also made the story more life-like. The author is extremely talented, I could feel every emotion the characters were feeling. One other thing, this book ended on a extreme cliff-hanger, which of course is fine because I wanted to read the next book anyways but wouldn't be so wonderful for anyone who just likes stand-alones. There were just those few things I didn't like, there are a couple other things I didn't care for over much so but they wouldn't change my rating any, therefore I will leave those minor details out.
After all is said and done, I personally give this book 3 stars. I received this book from Bethany House Publishers for my honest review, which I have given. I was not required to write a positive review and have not been compensated for it in any way. All opinions expressed are mine.

Life as it happens by Jane on 10/27/14

A book of the seasons of life from beginning to end. A book of encouragement but also questions we ask God.
The start of a hospital in Blessing. Nurses brought to town to train at hospital.
Family life, the life of a rural town, and differences of beliefs. So many times I ask a question of God and found same question by someone in this book.
A struggle with faith so many can relate to. I know some are seeking more than romance. This book offers much more. Their are babies born, difficulties, life happenings, and yes, even death. Have tissues ready near end.
I highly recommend this book. It will leave you waiting for the next one.

Loved! by Ginger on 10/22/14

Ever since my daughter was young teen girl, she has loved the author, Lauraine Snelling. We have read the Dakotah Series, as well as a few other books from the Lauraine Snelling. To Everything a Season, it is just another incredibly written book, It is based in Blessing, in North Dakotah. She has an entire series based in Blessing. To Everything a Season, is book one of Song of Blessing series.

To Everything a Season, Lauraine SnellingTrygve, a young man that is working on his uncle's well drilling business, is ready to come back home. Something inside him is just telling him he needs to stay home. So home he stays. He works with his family farming. Miriam, is a young lady from Chicago that is being sent to Blessings, to further her training for nursing. She left behind a sick mom and siblings left to care for her mom as well as work to pay the bills.

If you hadn't figured it out yet, I love Lauraine Snelling, and To Everything a Season is another example of what great work she does. I give this book 5 stars. I'd give more if I could. It is easy to read, easy to understand. The author paints a vivid picture in your mind of the story. You almost feel as if you are sitting right there talking with any of the characters. When Haaken was on the riverbank,, I cried. I felt his peace.

The only thing I didn't was that the author left a huge cliff-hanger at the end. So this book does not stand on its own. Which is fine, as I want to read the next book anyways. I just personally prefer that there is a minimal cliff-hanger so if the reader did not want to finish the series, they wouldn't need too. The story is not finished.

Otherwise, I am recommend this book to you my readers.

I received To Everything a Season by Lauraine Snelling from Bethany House in hopes of an honest review here on my blog. All opinions are my own
