About "A Promise For Ellie (#01 in Daughters Of Blessing Series)"

It's North Dakota, 1900, and Ellie Wold and Andrew Bjorklund are busily preparing house and home for when they finally marry. But everything turns awry when their belongings fall prey to arson, and Andrew seeks to get even with an old enemy.
- Koorong

Ellie Wold can't wait to graduate from high school. She and Andrew Bjorklund have been waiting to get married since, well, since forever, and in June they will finally wed. When Andrew announces they have to postpone the wedding, she's disappointed but takes it in stride--there must be a good reason, or Andrew's pa wouldn't ask it of them. But Andrew is angry and can't understand why Ellie isn't upset too, especially when they'd been planning to "marry up" ever since they were in grade school. Disgruntled, he works out his frustration in stubborn determination to finish building their barn and mail-order house, working himself to exhaustion. But just when the new house is nearly finished, an unthinkable tragedy occurs. Throwing aside the vow he made to Ellie, Andrew seeks revenge. As their plans unravel, it looks as if their love may not survive. Is this the end of their dream? (Daughters of Blessing Book 1)
- Publisher

Return to Blessing, North Dakota, with the story of Andrew Bjorklund and Ellie Wold. After graduating in May of 1900, the two make plans to marry once the harvest is over and their new house is finished. They spend the summer working hard, and the Lord seems to shine on and in them in a special way. Everyone rejoices in their happiness. Everyone except for Toby Valders, who is determined to get even for all the drubbings he has taken from Andrew through the years. Andrew, however, has promised Ellie there will be no more fistfights. But when their new barn burns-and many of their possessions and dreams with it-Andrew throws his vows of nonviolence aside, reaping bitter consequences. Why is the life he has so looked forward to now unraveling so quickly?

A lovely, peaceful respite.
4 stars By Margot, Nov 16 2012
What a delightful break from the stresses and pressures of modern life. Lauraine Snelling takes the reader on a trip to Blessing, North Dakota in 1900, when life was simple, work was hard, families were strong and close and communities cared. This is the first in the 'Daughters of Blessing' series, a follow on from several other series concerning the Bjorklund family, by the same author. I haven't read any of the others, and it didn't detract from my enjoyment of this book, although much of what had gone on before was referred to. Ellie is a young girl in love, and we share with her as she faces fears, grows up and learns to lean on God. Mothers and daughters feature equally in the story line, making the book appealing to both young and old alike. All in all, a lovely read.
