Rurik Jorgenson may have just arrived but, it’s not without baggage. Not long after becoming a strong member of the community and a partner in his uncle’s furniture business, the woman who was one his fiancee and her brother arrive and accuse him of abusing his privileges while they were engaged. She expects marriage, but not only does Rurik not love her but he’s found his heart lead elsewhere.
Can the new friendship between Rurik and Merrill last with so much against them?
What I liked: I loved Tracie Peterson’s The Icecutter’s Daughter! This book is not only a great fiction novel, but it gives a great plan of salvation. It shows that Christians aren’t perfect but are constantly striving to be more. Plus, The Icecutter’s Daughter gives a great picture of how life was in the late 1800s. It was so interesting and showed different occupations that I’d not considered previously.
What I didn’t like: I really didn’t Svea or Nils! I’m mot sure when I’ve ever not liked a “Christian” character so intensely! It’s a bit nerve-wracking!
