Reviews - What do customers think about Sophies Dilemma (Daughters of Blessing)?
Pleasant Christian Fiction without preaching May 26, 2009
This was a pretty enjoyable book to read. Snelling's writing does not always have as much depth of detail and emotion that I like to find in a book, but she was able to tell a good story. I've always been partial to stories set in the West in the 1800's and early 1900's, so that initially drew my interest. Snelling was able to weave a story mixed with many blessings and occasional tragedies that not only brought Sophie back together with her family, but brought the town of Blessing closer together, as well. I felt like Hamre's death was rather anti-climactic when reading about it, but perhaps that's normal given that we're already given an idea that it will come when reading the back of the book... But I really enjoyed the romance that came Sophie's way later on, it was very sweet. And without giving anything away, let me just say that the scene where she is about to give birth was quite amusing and memorable. I think I might die of mortification if I had to be transported to the doctor the way Sophie was.
Another plus for me was that I did not feel like I was being preached to, like I do with so many other Christian Fiction books. The religion and prayers to God were there, but I didn't feel like I was being told that I had to believe a certain way. That was something I appreciated for a change. This is the second book in the Daughters of Blessing Series, so I think I might have to hunt down the first to see what I missed.
Sweet story Aug 30, 2008
This book was not as good as the first in the series. However, it was still a very sweet and wholesome story. I enjoyed it very much!

Amish Books Apr 3, 2008
I've enjoyed all the Amish books I've purchased. I even have my father reading them now. They are clean, and very informative.
Sophie's Dilemma (Daughters of Blessing #2) Mar 29, 2008
This is a great read which took me back to my childhood. A reminder of a much simpler life even though difficult at times.
