'The Bachelor Farmers' Book Tour

Book Description:

The Bachelor Farmers is a story about two Norwegian brothers who learn the meaning of love from a most unlikely source. Hans and Jon, the youngest of four immigrant brothers have just inherited land from their recently deceased father. They set out to develop the land, thus perpetuating the family dream of success in America. When Jon learns that the husband of Mahal, a beautiful half-breed Ojibwa woman has been injured on their property and cannot work, Jon hires her and brings her home. Under the eye of his disapproving brother, Jon finds himself falling in love, but when a terrible blizzard blows into town without warning, the three of them must deal with the consequences, and Mahal is forced to make a decision that reshapes their lives in profound and unimaginable ways. The Bachelor Farmers takes us into a world where true meaning and healing are found in the complexity of human relationships and dreams of a better life fuel a family’s drive for success.

What people have said about The Bachelor Farmers.

“Sorrels’ could be described as a fundamental minimalist with descriptions of
characters, scenes,and dialogue but her laconic way works because the story is strong and pulls the reader in, by the middle of the book making it hard to put down. This is a sweet read, a well written read, and a comfort to go to bed with, providing one doesn’t have
to get up early the next morning.”~Paulette, amazon review

“Although each of the main characters is flawed in uniquely human ways, the author treats each of her characters with enormous empathy and warmth – in my opinion, the mark of a true burgeoning talent. I definitely recommend snuggling up with The Bachelor Farmers on a cold winter’s night, or anytime you want to escape to a more romantic time and place.” ~nyc2086, amazon reviewer
**My thoughts**

I was completely drawn into this story from the very beginning. What I liked about it was it relaxed pace, as it gave you time to savor every moment. So many current books are full of a lot of action to keep the pages flying. This story was intriguing enough to make the pages turn out of curiosity about how each character was going to handle their situations. You will find yourself wondering what you would have done in the situation, as you get lost in their story.
