Item Description...
Visiting her brother and his family in Dakota Territory for the holidays, Mary Martha MacCallister wins the affection of the entire community, including Pastor John Solberg, an eligible bachelor, who finds himself heavy-hearted when she must return home.

Publishers Description
She never intended to stay. So why is leaving so hard?
The fertile prairies of Dakota Territory have finally begun to yield the bountiful harvests the pioneers have dreamed about since leaving their homes in Norway. The tiny community of Blessing is beginning to expand and thrive, its hardy citizens at last enjoying a measure of prosperity.
Mary Martha MacCallister comes to Blessing from Missouri to visit her brother. She volunteers to help at the schoolhouse and, with her gentle southern charm, quickly wins the affection of all.
Pastor John Solberg, rejecting the persistent efforts of matchmaking mothers, develops a friendship with Mary Martha and discovers she shares his love of books and children. But then the message arrives that she must return home to care for her ailing mother. When she leaves, she says she'll write....
Everyone has come to love her.
Is this good-bye forever?

True To Life As It Was from 1887 - 1888 In The Dakota Territory  Feb 5, 2010
Tender Mercies (Red River of the North #5)

Book #5 in the "Red River Of The North" series is totally honest and lets you live through Snelling's character's eyes and hearts. I did not find it depressing in the least. After having studied genealogy and history, and loving the Christian influence in this whole series, I found it very good. As I never like to give away exactly what happens in a book, I will not do so here either. I'm reading the whole series (I mean ALL of them) again. Blessing, in the Dakota Territory has families whose lives change, as do all families. In this book you'll find a new teacher at the school, 2 marriages, the town of Blessing grows, loss of life (2 will really surprise you), a new machine for the ladies this time, and many other happenings. It is another great read by Lauraine Snelling. Another book that you won't be able to put down until you finish it.
One of the best in this series  Feb 18, 2009
This was my favorite book in the Red River of the North Series. This book was very true to life in the early days of the Dakota territory. The blooming love between two relatively new characters was touching. I had a really hard time putting this one down.
One of my favorites  Feb 19, 2008
This is one of the best series that I have ever read. It is a must see but beware, once you pick it up you will not want to put it down.
Great new character - Mary Martha  Apr 8, 2003
This is a very sad book at times with many deaths, but I love the new characters that were added. I think it was high time that the Pastor got a wife. Although many people complained they wanted more happiness, that wasn't the truth of homesteading or actually any lives in the 19th century.
I love these Books!  Sep 9, 2001
After growing up Norwegian in the Red River Valley I love these books dearly. They are such a sweet tale of how God loves his children even through the difficult times-which were many out on the frontier. Many say this book is depressing but I found it more realistic than most portraying life on the prairie.
