Book Review of To Everything a Season by Lauraine Snelling

To Everything a Season is Lauraine Snelling's first book in the Song of Blessing series.  The back cover says: 

"Trygve Knutson is devoted to his family and his community. With his job on the construction crew, he is helping to build a future for the North Dakota town of Blessing. Though he loves his home, he sometimes dreams of other horizons--especially since meeting Miriam Hastings.

Miriam is in Blessing to get practical training to become an accredited nurse. She's been promised a position in the Chicago women's hospital that will enable her to support her siblings and her ailing mother. Although eager to return to her family, Miriam is surprised to find how much she enjoys the small town of Blessing. And her growing attachment to Trygve soon has her questioning a future she always considered set in stone.
When a family emergency calls Miriam home sooner than planned, will she find a way to return? If not, will it mean losing Trygve--and her chance at love--for good?"

I found the description on the back cover misleading once I started to read the book because Miriam is not one of the characters that appears until later in the book .  There are a lot of characters in the book, and there seemed to be several different story lines happening at once.  I had to reread some parts because I felt like I had missed something, but I hadn't.  Apparently, this series is a continuation of a previous series.  I think I would have benefited from reading the books in that series first to eliminate the confusion I had while reading this book.  With that said, I can't recommend this book unless you have read the previous series and enjoy books by Lauraine Snelling.

*I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.*
