Eighteen-year-old Astrid Bjorklund has been studying medicine under Dr. Elizabeth Bjorklund’s direction and dreams of joining her practice in Blessing, North Dakota. But when a missionary arrives and tells of the need for medical ministry in Africa, he seems to look directly at her. Could God be calling her to go to Africa?

Joshua Landsverk left Blessing two years ago, but he’s never forgotten Astrid. Returning to town he seeks to court her, and love begins to bloom. When the opportunity opens for Astrid to go to Chicago for further training, she finds it difficult to leave home—and Joshua. They agree to correspond, but after receiving only one letter from him, she learns he’s left town … again. Believing Joshua no longer loves her, Astrid makes an impetuous, heart-wrenching decision. Will she regret the choice she’s made?

    " I'm sorry to say that this book was forgettable for me. It was sweet in a few places, and I did really like a few of the characters....but I found myself struggling to finish it....and skipping over some of it. It was definately very ummmm preachy. I love a good Christian romance but to me this one was a bit over the top. "

    " There are A LOT of characters in this book to try & keep straight. It took me a little while to remember who everyone is as the story unfolded. I like Snelling's subject and thought that she did an excellent job of bringing the Norwegian culture into the book. "

    " This was the first time that I had read this author. It was a book about a young women learning to be a doctor. She assisted the current doctor in her town until it was time for her to get further education. She moved to Chicago from North Dakota to learn more. She got to experience surgeries and do cadavers. She was very homesick and had a love interest at home. Her days were very busy and long. At the end she had a decision to make. She could go back home, go to more schooling in Chicago or become a missionary in Africa. She was so unsure of what to do. The very last page it told you her decision. Now I have to read the next one to see what happens. "
