To Everything A Season by Lauraine Snelling

Good morning everyone! I have a Lauraine Snelling book for you today...if you know anything about Lauraine, it's that she's known for wonderful books PACKED with history. Such a fun mix for the history lovers out there!

*About the Author*
Lauraine Snelling is the award-winning author of over seventy books, with sales of more than 2 million copies.

She also writes for a wide range of magazines, and helps others reach their writing dreams by teaching at writers’ conferences across the country.

Lauraine and her husband, Wayne, have two grown sons, and live in the Tehachapi Mountains with a watchdog Basset named Winston. 

They love to travel, most especially in their forty-foot motor coach, which they affectionately deem “a work in progress”.

*Book Description*

Trygve has always been on the move. Until now. Something is pulling him to stay in blessing. The question is, will he follow his heart? And when his heart leads him to a  beautiful young woman, will she follow her heart? Will her heart lead to him?

Miriam has decided. As painful as it may be to leave her dear family, she must go to blessing for a year of training in nursing. With sorrowful goodbyes, she enters the sweet, beautiful town of Blessing. Trouble is, now that she's here, will she ever want to leave? When a sweet well driller captures her heart, will she stay in the town that her love resides in? Or will duty call?

*What I liked*
I liked this book. It was a sweet story and the cover was beautiful with deep, inviting characters. As always, Lauraine's wonderful writing is loaded with historical facts and accuracy for all you history buffs out there!

*What I didn't like*
 The main thing readers may not like is this. You pretty much have to read Lauraine Snelling's earlier books in order to not be completely lost. I'd read a little bit of one of her other books so I knew the characters a little bit but a lot of this book is about the previous characters so you have to read the others first. The other thing I will remind you, is that for some of you, you'll love the historical facts included in this book. Others will feel as though the book drags on forever. Read my *Reader Tips* section of this post for my suggestion.

*My Rating*

I give 'To Everything A Season'...

Four out of five stars for a must read!

*Why my rating is what it is*

My rating is 4 stars because I hadn't read her earlier books and it didn't catch my attention. I also am really bad with history so I just wasn't into it as much as a 'more fiction', fiction book. However, my grandma LOVES Lauraine's books as well as my little sister. It's all in people likes and dislikes. Read on the my reader tips section for my suggestion if you're iffy about buying this book.

*Reader Tips*
My rating is based on my personal feelings towards the book so you shouldn't take this review SO much to heart either way that you (a Buy the book expecting to have your life fulfilled in a book. (Shouldn't do that anyways, you're too smart for that! ; ) (b Read the cons of my review (or anyone's) and adamantly refuse to read the book even if it was free because "it sounds like a bad book". Just like you can't judge a book by it's cover, you can't judge it by it's review either. Everyone's different and will have different opinions, including you. My suggestion is that if you have not read one of Lauraine's wonderful historical books, go buy the very first book she wrote on Blessing and give her a try. Older books are less expensive but will give you a taste of what the author's writing is all about. Then, if you love her, go buy as many of her books as you want. In order. Ready? Go!
