It seems that no matter how much is written about this family there is always something new and interesting. I usually find making a series too long makes it contrived and forced, however, this new book seems fresh and new.
Astrid Bjorkland, the youngest child of Hakaan and Ingeborg Bjorkland, is finally a doctor and goes to the local Indian reservation to assist with a measles epidemic. At the end of the last book, Astrid’s love interest, Joshua Landsverk gives her an order – don’t go to the reservation, which causes their break-up. Will they get back together, will Astrid find someone who can understand her passion for being a doctor, or will she remain single for the sake of her calling?
I love Snelling’s writing style, and characters. I must admit, her characters are well developed over the series and any of the books would be able to be read as a standalone book.
“A Heart for Home” not only follows a story line, but explores the character’s spiritual lives as well. This is one great positive for Snelling’s books, no only are they well written and a pleasurable read, they discuss important spiritual truths.
This book, as well as Snelling’s other works are a definite must-read for anyone who enjoys romantic or historical fiction.
