Home to Blessing Volume 1
by Lauraine Snelling
I believe the back of the book is a bit misleading. Astrid and Joshua have never really talked to each other, yet it says they have agreed to write letters back and forth. I wonder if the person who wrote the back of the book synopsis ever read the book. The end of the book ends in a cliffhanger.
The book is mainly about Astrid ad her desire to know the will of God concerning her future. She is not sure if she should become a medical missionary to Africa, go on to more medical training, or home to Blessing.
I was hoping for a little more about Joshua and why he feels he loves Astrid, but of course this could be in the other books. I also felt the book lacked any depth. It seemed the author was writing a book without any explaining~ especially if this is book one. I have never read any of Snelling's other works, but I am not sure I want to because I felt the author assumed the reader knew all about the families in the book and their previous experiences.
