Library Journal Review

In this third volume of the "Red River of the North" series (e.g., A New Day Rising, Bethany, 1996), mishap continues to prey on the extended Bjorklund family, who immigrated to and settled on the Dakota prairie in the 1880s. However, the Bjorklunds have a strong faith in God and continue to believe life will improve. Unfortunately, Kaaren Knutson gives birth to twin girls under difficult circumstances and then realizes that one has been born deaf. Another Bjorklund relative, Solveig, arrives from Norway, only to be injured in a train accident. Meanwhile, the unsettled prairie is becoming a thing of the past. As family sagas go, this is a sound one, with some compelling characters and conflicts. Readers who want gentle romance novels should find this as appealing as the previous volumes.
