Joanne Bischof comes the sequel to her beautiful novel
Sons of Blackbird Mountain.
Aven Norgaard understands courage. Orphaned within an Irish
workhouse, then widowed at just nineteen, she voyaged to
America where she was wooed and wed by Thor Norgaard, a Deaf
man in rural Appalachia. That the Lord saw her along the
winding journey and that Aven now carries Thor’s child are
blessings beyond measure. Yet while Thor holds her heart, it
is his younger brother and rival who haunts her memories.
Haakon—whose selfish choices shattered her trust in him.
Having fled the Norgaard orchard after trying to take Aven
as his own, Haakon sails on the North Atlantic ice trade,
where his soul is plagued with regrets that distance cannot
heal. Not even the beautiful Norwegian woman he’s pursued
can ease the torment. When the winds bear him home after
four years away, Haakon finds the family on the brink of
tragedy. A decades-old feud with the neighboring farm has
wrenched them into the fiercest confrontation on Blackbird
Mountain since the Civil War. Haakon’s cunning and strength
hold the power to seal many fates, including Thor’s—which is
already imperiled due to a grave illness brought to him at
the first prick of warfare.
Now Haakon faces the hardest choice of his life. One that
shapes a battlefield where pride must be broken enough to be
restored, and where a prodigal son may finally know the
healing peace of surrender and the boundless gift of
forgiveness. And when it comes to the woman he left behind
in Norway, he just might discover that while his heart
belongs to a daughter of the north, she’s been awaiting him
on shores more distant than the land he’s fighting for.
