Abstract:

The rich farmlands of the Dakota Territory in 1887 are finally beginning to yield the abundant harvest the pioneers had dreamed about so long. The establishment of the railroad has brought significant changes to the small town of Blessing as well as prosperity to the Bjorklund family and their neighbors. Among the townsfolk is reverend John Solberg. The reverend, rejecting the persistent efforts of matchmaking mothers, develops a friendship with Mary Martha through their common love of books. But then the message arrives that she must return home to care for her ailing mother. When she leaves, she says that she'll write. Reverend John and the other townsfolk are left to wonder, is this good-bye forever?
