Even though I felt book 4 was just a bit dragging at times, it kept my interest because it built on the life of Hjelmer. There is finally a blacksmith and a merchantile in town. Penny's only known relative comes to join her. Haaken contracts mumps as they spread throughout the families, and the Bjorkland matriarch arrives with 4 others for vacationing -or is it a move?
A very dramatic incident occurs when Anner, an angry farmer, has a farm accident.
During a 6 wk absence of her husband and against all advise including his, Ingeborg returns to her britches and plowing and has a freak though serious accident. Zeb MacCallister, a fugitive caring for orphans Manda and Deborah, joins the prairie families. Manda talks too much.
Blessing women are discussing the possibility of women's votes and the fact their area is about to become a state. Katy and Zeb are extremely attracted but speak completely different languages.
A bank is opening, several weddings take place, and near the end of the book Zeb sees his siter momentarily and gets a painful scare which forces him into an even more painful decision.
Despite a slight discrepancy in timeframes by the author, I am glad I already have purchased book 5 in this series.

I do not agree with the other reviews, I think these books deals with real issue that faced families that left their homes for a better life. These struggles that faced these families are hard to express. I loved these series.

I think this book and the other three in the series are great. The first book was hard to get into, but did get much better. They show good strong christian values that should be a part of your everyday living.

I liked this book. Lauraine makes her characters come to life. Even though they tamed the land,there are struggles left. This is a great book and I recommend anyone to read it. Keep it up Lauraine!
