Part of the overall Red River Series. These are best books I have read in a long time. Inspirational reading with an excellent story. Lauraine Snelling's books ahve been recommeneded by Sons of Norway, I am glad they turned me on to her work. LOVE it.
This book is the sequel to "An Untamed Land". I really enjoyed it. As always I have a hard time getting into the story but after a while I can't put it down. I think that if you read the first book you will want to read this one as well. I will be reading the third book but as an e-book. Lauraine Snelling is an excellent storyteller and really captures the time of the Norwegian homesteaders in the Dakota Territory in the 1880's.
This is an excellent series about pioneers that came from Norway and settled in North Dakota.
The characters are so real, you'll feel like you know them when you finish!
I recommend this if you like historical fiction!
