Item Description...
Andrew Bjorklund and Ellie Wold are preparing for life together on their farm, but when their new barn burns will their dreams and future go up in smoke too?

Publishers Description
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.

A Promise for Ellie
By Lauraine Snelling
Review by April Gardner

In 1900 Blessing, North Dakota, it seems an impossible task to keep fires from blazing out of control, consuming every field, house, and barn in its path, but it is more than just crops and buildings that continuously go up in flames. Tempers spark, and pride flares as Andrew and Ellie tensely approach their wedding date.

Andrew is very pointedly asked by his father, Haakan, to push the wedding date back two months, with the only reason given as "it's probably just best to wait." Anxious to wed, he butts against the idea and is shocked to find that Ellie is willing to go along with it. Words are spoken without thought, feelings are hurt, and thus begins two months of disturbing miscommunication, and resentment.

Frustration mounts as building their new home keeps them from seeing each other more than a short time each week, and the attention of another young man toward Ellie kindles jealously in her fiancé that spirals out of control. When a fire blazes on their land, which they have yet to inhabit, Ellie makes a poor choice and risks everything.

Maybe Haakan was right. Maybe they're not ready after all...

The sweet story of a family's love, a young woman's desire to please the Lord, and her fiancé's journey toward Christ, A Promise for Ellie is inspiring and refreshing. Snelling's ability to create compelling dialogue holds the reader's attention, as do the bits of unique Scandinavian culture harmoniously spliced into this poignant tale.

Ideal for an evening in front of a roaring fire, A Promise for Ellie will take you back one hundred years to the rugged life of the northern plains, and leave you clamoring for more.

Great read  May 26, 2009
I truly enjoy reading these books about the Red River and the people of Blessing. Ms. Snelling does a wonderful job of continuing the story that started with the Bjorklunds years ago with "An Untamed Land". My spirit has been encouraged and blessed by these books.
Very good read  Aug 19, 2008
I read this book in one day. It was very quick and never really lagged which I have not found in many books that I have read lately. It was refreshingly pure and entertaining.
A Promise for Ellie  Jul 3, 2008
I love all of the books about the Bjorklands. The culture and the family ties along with the Christian values presented are a delight to read. I can share these books with family, friends and my high school students without fear that they will read something off color or crude.
A Promise for Ellie  Mar 29, 2008
A wonderful read taking one back to the difficulties of life in early America. Recommend highly.
