Publisher's Summary

Beloved author Lauraine Snelling launches a new immigrant series
When Signe, her husband, Rune, and their three boys arrive in Minnesota from Norway to help a relative clear his land of lumber, they dream of owning their own farm and building a life in the New World. But Uncle Einar and Aunt Gird are hard, demanding people, and Signe and her family soon find themselves worked nearly to the bone in order to repay the cost of their voyage. At this rate they will never have land or a life of their own.
Signe tries to trust God but struggles with anger and bitterness. She has left behind the only life she knew, and, while it wasn't an easy life, it wasn't as hard as what she now faces. When a new addition to the family arrives, Signe begins to see how God has been watching over them throughout their ordeal. But after all that has happened, can she still believe in the promise of a bright future?

The Promise of Dawn

As always, Laurraine Snelling writes a wonderful story and it's so nice to hear about our friends in Blessing, North Dakota mentioned. However, the narrator does a very poor job and, in my opinion, greatly detracts from the story.

Absolutely wonderful!

I love the new characters in this book! They are very well developed, complex and interesting. The book maintains the joy of spending little moments with the characters in their daily chores, but the story also moves along well. I enjoyed the setting which is the Minnesota woods in 1912. I thought the narrator did a fantastic job in her expression and reading style. She brought the characters alive in the voices that she had for each one. I have enjoyed all of the narrators of Lauraine Snelling' s books. I think this is my favorite book and it surprises me to say that because I love so many of them. I can't wait to read the next one!
