Under Northern Skies (Book 1)

In the opening of a new series, Signe, her husband Rune, and their three boys arrive in Minnesota from Norway to help a relative clear his land. They dream of owning their own farm, but Uncle Einar and Aunt Gird are demanding — and Signe and her family soon find themselves worked nearly to the bone just to repay the cost of their voyage.


Customer Reviews

“Snelling examines many aspects of family life, both warm and loving and poisonously dysfunctional, as she captures the fine details of life on a farm as well as the plight of the immigrant in 1909.”

— Booklist (starred)

“In this first book of a new series, readers have the opportunity to embark on an immersive voyage from Norway to an American homestead via Snelling's signature style. . . . Fans will enjoy subtle tie-ins to the author's previous works, while every reader will appreciate the patience and endurance of the Carlson family. The Promise of Dawn entices readers to settle in for another entertaining saga from this beloved author.”
