Book Description
Opportunities are scarce in Norway, so when Rune and Signe Carlson receive a letter from Rune's uncle, Einar Strand, offering to loan them money for passage to America, Rune accepts. Signe is reluctant to leave her home, especially as she is pregnant with her fourth child, but Einar promises to give them land of their own, something they could never afford in Norway.

But life in Minnesota is more difficult than Signe imagined. Uncle Einar and Aunt Gerd are hard, demanding people, and Signe and her family soon find themselves worked nearly to the bone to pay off their debt. Afraid they will never have the life they dreamed of, she begins to lose her trust in God. When the dangers of the North Woods strike close to home, will she find the strength she needs to lead her family into the promise of a new dawn?
 My Review
I loved reading Lauraine Snelling's new book, The Promise of Dawn. I really liked how this story took place with a new side of the family. I loved the family in her former series. But since I never got the chance to read all of her former books, I always felt like I was missing part of the adventure. But with this new series it is starting out with someone new. So I am getting to be there for the beginning of their life's story.  
Signe and her family went through a lot to come to America. Even though they were not afraid to work hard, their new home was not what they were expecting. This book had lots of historical details on how things used to be done. And it gave me a great look at what life was like back then. This book does not have a fast plot, but I enjoyed the speed of the story. The plot was really interesting and it had some big surprises along the way. I would highly recommend this book to all
Lauraine Snelling fans!
  I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers for my honest review. The opinions are my own.
