After two long years, hardworking dairy farmer Andrew Bjorklund is thrilled to see his fiancée Ellie Wold again. But when materials to build their new home are delayed, Andrew grudgingly postpones the wedding. While Ellie works at the post office, Andrew finishes their new barn. Soon a tragedy threatens their future and forces them to fully rely upon God.
But Andrew is angry and can’t understand why Ellie isn’t upset too. Especially when they’d been planning the “marry up” ever since they were in grade school. Disgruntled, he worked out his frustration with stubborn determination to finish building their barn and mail-order house, working himself to exhaustion. But jest when the new house is nearly finished, an unthinkable tragedy occurs. Throwing aside the vow he made to Ellie, Andrew seeks revenge.
As their plans unravel, it looks as if their love may not survive. Is this the end of their dreams?
This book is about a young couple,Andrew and Ellie, who have been destined to get married since they were little.As soon as they graduate out of highschool they were supposed to get married but their parents made them postpone the wedding. During the time between then and the day they get married they discover other sides of each other they never knew and question whether they should get married or not.There are 2 main characters Andrew and Ellie.Andrew is a big teddy bear. He is really sweet but looks tough on the outside.Ellie is this blonde sweet intelligent person who doesn't have one bad thought about anyone and always looks on the bright side of life.They both change throughout the book in the same way.They both widen their horizons of looking at the outside and inside of each others personalities and sometimes find that they don't always like what they find. The things I could relate to was their families.Their parents want whats best for them but don't always do what you want to give you the best things. What I didn't like about the book was where they left off at the end(i wont tell what happened) but I didn't like it. I would recommend this to any girl who loves a good love story.
Ellie can't wait to graduate because then her and Andrew Bjorklund plan to marry. Andrew has loved Ellie since she was little and is very disappointed when his father asks him to hold off the wedding until after harvest. As Andrew and Ellie wait they must learn to understand each other better. Andrew has a hard time with his temper at times. In the meantime you will watch their new barn go up and their new house. But tragedy does strike during this story and seeking revenge is never a good move.
I think there might be a series of books about this family written before this one, and might go back and read up on how some of the "older folks" in this story came together.
I don't think I'll be reading another Lauraine Snelling book anytime soon.
