Sons of Blackbird Mountain by Joanne Bischof

Sons of Blackbird Mountain book cover

Aven Norgaard is forced to leave all that she knows in Norway after the tragic death of her husband and move to rustic America.  She finds sanctuary in the home of her husband’s cousins, helping to run the three-hundred-acre farm.  Soon, however, her heart begins to stir for not one but two of the cousins, putting herself in a predicament when both men return her regard.  Aven is stick with a choice—one that could forever change the lives of two wonderful men.

I fell in love with Joanne Bischof’s writing when I read her book, The Lady and the Lionheart, and was greatly anticipating this new release.  She possesses such a wonderful ability to craft characters with depth and emotion that reaches across the pages and touches the reader’s soul.  I loved the deaf and mute Thor and appreciated the insight this author gave into his struggles.  The author’s writing style allows the reader to be transported to a different time and world.  The spiritual themes are woven seamlessly.  I greatly enjoyed this novel and truly cannot say enough good things about it.  I cannot wait for the next one in the series!

I received a copy of this book from Thomas Nelson/NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
