Trygve Knutson has been promoted from well drilling to heading a construction crew for the fast growing town of Blessing, North Dakota. Though devoted to the land and his family, he sometimes dreams of other horizons. But is he willing to leave Blessing permanently?

Miriam Francini hopes to become an accredited nurse in a large city hospital. She is simply tolerating her assignment at the hospital in rural Blessing because it will give her the experience she needs to accomplish her goal. She can't wait to finish her training and head to New York to begin a nursing career. Then Miriam meets Trygve Knutson and all her plans are suddenly in a jumble. She quickly realizes she doesn't want to live without him, yet she's a smart, independent woman--she's even a suffragette. She can't let anything get in the way of her own plans, even if she's in love. Or can she?

Well... I the cover is beautiful, but the rest of the book certainly does not live up to that same standard. In a word, boring. I guess there is a whole series about this particular group of people that I should have read beforehand if I wanted to know what was going on, but I really wasn't that interested. It was slow moving with a lot of talk and a lot of characters.

I don't mind names from other nationalities, but Trygve is difficult for an English only speaking person to read without at least a pronunciation guide. It bothered me to see it so often and have no idea how to say it.

If you are a die hard Lauraine Snelling fan you may enjoy this one but in general I'd say it's not worth the read. Pretty cover, though.
