Ellie Wold can’t wait to graduate from high school. She and Andrew Bjorklund have been waiting to get married since … well, since forever, and in June they will finally wed. When Andrew announces they have to postpone the wedding, she’s disappointed but takes it in stride—there must be a good reason, or Andrew’s pa wouldn’t ask it of them. But Andrew is angry and can’t understand why Ellie isn’t upset too, especially when they’d been planning to “marry up” ever since they were in grade school. Disgruntled, he works out his frustration in stubborn determination to finish building their barn and mail-order house, working himself to exhaustion. But just 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.

    " I listened to this book on cd. I liked it for the most part. It did get long in parts and I felt that it could have had more of a plot. It seems like learning to deal with anger was the main portion of this book and yet it didn't really give good advice, solution, or a lesson for doing that. "

    " This is the tenth book in the Bjorklund saga but can be enjoyed without having read the earlier books. Essentially this story concerns two immature and uncertain young people, Ellie and Andrew, who have been emotionally attached since early childhood. They have made a commitment to marry, perhaps prematurely, since they discover that in adult roles they know very little about the honest and open communication required. So, they struggle to meet each other half way, to trust one another and believe in their successful future together. The story line is permeated with three sentiments: Impatience, resentment and foreboding. These are not resolved until the end of the book, and the reader can't but wonder whether they truly are resolved. Both are fortunate to have the usual strong cast of supportive relatives (as in other Blessing books), and the restoration of their Christian faith also helps them through their tribulations. Snelling always manages to inject some surprises into her plot. Characters' dialogs, with their own "inner voice"--printed in italic typefaces--add to the reader developing intimacy with the characters. All in all this is a fine work of sensitive, family oriented historical fiction. "
