I am reviewing a copy of The Promise of Dawn through Netgalley and Bethany House Publishers:
From beloved Christian author Lauraine Snelling comes a new immigrant series called Under Northern Skies.
In 1909 Signe, her husband Rune and their three boys leave Norway and immigrate to the United States coming to Ellis Island before settling in Minnesota but they go to stay with but Uncle Einar and Aunt Gird are hard working them to the bone to pay back the cost of their voyage.
When Bjorn one of Signe and Rune’s son’s were injured while working on the farm. Bjorn temporarily looses his hearing. There uncle refuses to let the boys go to school. They soon see that even Aunt Gird fears Einar’s temper.
Signe soon sees that Gird is not so hard, but her husband refuses to let them build even stairs although he knows Signe is pregnant and she soon discovers it was Gird who took care of all of the animals before she fell sick.
It is Aunt Gird who helps to save Signe’s life after she falls and goes into labor.
Will they ever get what’s promised to them, or will Uncle Einar continue to make them work like slaves for nothing? Find out In The Promise of Dawn.
Five out of five stars!
