Beschreibung

Eighteen-year-old Astrid Bjorklund has always dreamed of becoming a doctor. She had intended to study medicine in Chicago or Grand Forks, but when a disaster wiped out a major portion of her family’s income, Astrid stayed home instead, receiving hands-on training from Dr. Elizabeth. Joshua Landsverk left Blessing two years ago, but he’s never forgotten Astrid. Returning to town, he seeks to court her. Astrid is attracted to him, and when the opportunity unexpectedly opens for her to go to Chicago for medical training, she finds it difficult to leave. Love blossoms through their letters, but upon arriving back home, she makes a heartbreaking discovery. Will she have to give up love to pursue her dream?

    I've really been enjoying all the books by this author lately. I don't know whether its the stories themselves or just enjoying following these people and this town through the years. This book was no exception. I was interested from the start and found the end of the book a little bit frustrating - not from any writing problem but because it ended! Good thing I have book two from the library already and I can pick up and keep reading. Its nice to see a bit more of Astrid, finally, and her dilemma is interesting to read about. Not unlike places where I have been before. It was easy to identify with her. Something important in books, I think.

    This book is an excellent telling of a young lady’s journey into what she believes is her lifelong calling and her stepping out in faith for it.

    This is indeed the first book in the series, Home to Blessing, but it is not the first book about the town of Blessing or its inhabitants, so to say it is “the first” is misleading. These are continuing characters in continuing roles. Astrid is well on her way to being a full-fledged doctor, and she is torn between staying in Blessing and going to Africa. The story is slow moving and the characters are fairly predictable in their actions. The story ends on a cliff hanger, so after wading through the entire tale, it still is not finished. The story does one thing well: it illustrates the biblical admonition to pray unceasingly. These characters certainly do that! Unfortunately, it does not move the plot along very well. The plot is a good one – single female doctor at the crossroads of her life – but the story just plods along. If getting there is half the fun, this novel has little fun involved, because it doesn’t even have an ending.
