A HEART FOR HOME
Snelling’s flair for writing about Norwegian culture has given readers delightful memories of being home with them, as well as an education in faith. In her latest, she offers a multicultural story filled with humility and service.
Astrid Bjorkland is a doctor with a heart for service. She serves Native Americans and immigrants who come to Blessing. Her family is committed to building a community that includes a hospital. Astrid denies the need for courting and wishes Joshua Landsverk would go seek the person God has for him. She wishes only to seek doctoring and the mission God has given her to care for the sick. Does His plan include a husband who can embrace her calling? (BETHANY HOUSE, Mar., 368 pp., $14.99)
