The quiet, resilient people of Blessing know many seasons.
Seasons of rejoicing, and of mourning. Seasons of sowing and of reaping. Seasons of tearing and of mending.
To Everything a Season.
This book has a cast of colorful characters: salt of the earth citizenry, a band of would-be bank robbers, lady doctors with strong wills and kind hands, prayerful old Grannies, and hopeful young couples.
People live and die here in Blessing, surrounded by a place they call Home and people who care.
They make good and bad choices- they come together to help each other and they split apart.
The children play and grow, the older people tend the land that sustains them.
There's a dash of danger, a scoop of drama, much fellowship, and many home-and-hearth moments. By the end of this tale you'll agree that "This was surely a Blessing town."
This is the first book I've read by Lauraine Snelling, but I understand there is a many-volume series from years ago also set in the area of Blessing. I can see why this saga has loyal readers.
Thank you Bethany House for my review copy!
