Rebecca's Reward (Daughters of Blessing #4)
After having read the previous 12 books (the first 6 in the "Red River Of The North" series, the next 4 in the "Return To Red River" series, and the last 3 in this "Daughters Of Blessing" series) it is so much easier to read this last book in this series. The next series is called, "Back To Blessing." I am just reading "Rebecca's Reward" for the first time (the other 12 I had read 2 yrs. ago) and find this book as wonderful as the previous books. After having studied genealogy and history, I find these books historically accurate. I was SO THRILLED to read Lauraine Snelling's "Dedication" in this book. I always had felt that she started the first books from a real true genealogical base, with the Norwegians coming to America being her real family. As you read the "Dedication" you will find out how true that was. I will not tell you everything that specifically happens in the book, because I feel that isn't fair to you, the reader. You'll want to read it for yourself, and not know all the details (like other reviewers do it) before you've even opened the book. This book is about Rebecca Baard (I will tell you that much). There is also: A graduation, an evil occurrence, now 5 phones in Blessing, a visit to a far away family, a character saves Rebecca, a vision is seen in person, an evening ride, relatives from back home are thinking of immigrating, animals are missed, another death from a natural disaster, a beloved character has a stroke, an evil man attacks, a person driven from Blessing, a man speaks to his mother, a re-do appears brand new in town, a crook is found out, very happy news for one family, a marriage, and a dream comes true. Snelling is a fantastic author and has a beautiful way with words. I would highly recommend reading the other books before this one, and then read this one. All of the books are dated as to when in time they happened. Thanks Lauraine for a wonderful read, and bringing the daughters of Blessing back to life for us!
