Sophie's Dilemma (Daughters of Blessing #2)
As we begin book #2 in the "Daughters Of Blessing" series, we see the daughter of Kaaren and Lars showing her independence with her new "fringe" hairstyle. As I am reading these books through the 2nd time now, I am enjoying them just as much the 2nd time as I did the first time! You will want to go back and read the first two series that belong with this book, and know the families as they began their lives from Norway all the way through here to Blessing, North Dakota. I am not like other reviewers, and will not tell you exactly what happens before you read the book, as that gives away a lot of the secrets in the book you haven't read yet. I will tell you this though, about this book: There are 2 new buildings in Blessing, a cousin returns, a risque marriage takes place, new arrival for a specific job, a beloved family member goes far away for much needed surgery, a newborn arrives, several deaths occur, a member of a beloved family comes home, coal burning furnaces arrive in homes, a fire involving deaths and injuries, new places to live for people, an indoor toilet in a certain place, a buyer for the boardinghouse (?), and more births. Lauraine Snelling moves us right along as she always has with her newer additions to her families and loved ones. These books are beloved by many, and a wonderful way to spend your time and have an enjoyable time with her! The reading is absolutely thrilling!
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!
