    Nilda, a recent arrival in Minnesota from Norway, hopes a person from her past does not follow her to Minnesota. In the new country she finds two new chances at love, but the past still haunts her. While I enjoyed the glimpses into settler life, I did not enjoy the overall story which ...

    This series is like Little House on the Prairie for grownups and I am completely obsessed. When I found that the 4th book of this series isn't out until August, I almost cried. Yes, I have issues and I could care less, as long as I can keep reading these books. Why I can't stop reading...

    Best-selling Christian author, Lorraine Snelling, has added a beautifully-written, new addition to her many novels about the Scandinavian immigrants who helped settle Minnesota. They are all well-written and full of interesting facts about the Norwegian culture. This book is another gr...

    I know this book was different then most of the other books like Ms. Snelling but I felt that she worked around the problem very well with out doing into to much detail. I think that Nelda and her family will come out ahead after going though this last year here in America and dealing ...

    This is the 3rd in the series and since it was some time ago that I read the first two, a list of characters would?ve been helpful, it seemed like you came in the middle of a story. Nilda?s dreams are coming true, the first months in America had been hard but now the farm is growin...

    This was my first book in this series. The book started off seemingly in the middle of a plot already. Having not read the other books, I didn?t know any of the characters, who was a child of whom, and who was sister to whom... it was all very confusing. And ages, I have no idea how ...

    I've read all 3 books and surely hope there will be more. This is the everyday life story of a family who came from Norway and settle in Minnesota. Life is hard, and things don't always go the way planned, but they are finally beginning to thrive in their new surroundings --- What fun ...

    This book was filled with love, family, forgiveness, and God?s amazing grace. There were so many wonderful examples of faith throughout this book. The way this family prayed and trusted God with their lives was inspiring something we should all take note of and try to emulate in our ...

    I jumped into the Under Northern Skies series with book three, A Season of Grace. While I could tell as I read that Snelling assumed her reader was familiar with the characters and their background, it did not keep me from understanding and enjoying this story set in 1910 Minnesota. ...

    A Season of Grace is book three from Lauraine Snelling's Under the Northern Skies series. This one is my favorite of the series so far. I enjoyed being taken back in time to 1910 Minnesota and she how the immigrants of Norway were living then. I just loved Nilda and admired her strengt...

    I loved this story! It moved along at a nice pace. While I was anxious to see how it ended, I was sorry to get to the finish. The characters are so wonderful. I recommend this story for anyone looking for a good, clean read. I love how this story is rooted in scripture to validate re...

    3.5 stars This is not your typical historical romance. This is the third in the Under Northern Skies series and I feel you need to read them all to get the best understanding of the story line. I have not read them all and struggled a little but it is still a good story. This series ...

    This is a lovely slice of life story about Norwegian immigrants in early 20th Century Northern Minnesota, with drama provided by the appearance of the charming but menacing Dreng Nygaard, that is as neatly wrapped up as possible given that it appears to be the middle book in a story ar...

    A good title! and love that cover. It was again so good to return to this family from Norway. Good to settle into the stories of the blessings in their lives mixed with hard work and coping with hardships, ups and downs, shared by all in this close family. They really make me hungry th...

    I was so happy to get the last book in the Under Northern Skies Series by Lauraine Snelling. This series is wonderful. Thank you NetGalley for providing the book in exchange for my honest review. As I mentioned previously this is the last book in the series. I just went back and re-...

    Loved the cover; enjoyed the historical setting but as with other Snelling's books, I was left confused and perplexed. Immediately the reader is inundated with countless characters. There were so many characters at the beginning of this book that I couldn't keep them straight. Page...

    Got a little bogged down in the minutia, and had to make myself finish. A good tale, but doesn't have the appeal of the Red River series - yet. Possibly was because I was trying to read too many books at once and didn't give it my full attention. I'll keep an eye out for the sequel, bu...

    A Season of Grace is my favorite in the Under Northern Skies series. At least until book 4 comes out. This one starts to slowly turn the focus of the story onto Nilda. More characters from Norway join the family in America and the family even grows a little. I?m enjoying this series ...

    I wasn't not going to read the third book right after finishing the second. Yay for Nilda! I'm glad this book mainly focused on her. Not that I don't like Signe and Rune, but we know about them already. Nilda is having guy problems. Which one should she begin courting with? What about ...

    This is going to be hard to review. If you know me at all, you know Lauraine Snelling is my favorite historical fiction author, and there have only been one or two books of hers that I did not like, but unfortunately, this is another of them. It was delightful to catch up with all ...

    While this could be read as a stand-alone, it is much richer if read in the context of the world Snelling has created around the town of Blessing. This book is from the series Under Northern Skies #3. While this family has a connection to the family that located in Blessings, this is a...
