Book review: An Untamed Heart

An Untamed Heart
If I was to read one book this fall, I would have to say the new book by Lauraine
Snelling would be it! I loved An Untamed Heart, the prequel to the Red River of
the North Series. In fact, before I had read this book, I did not know that the
series existed...needless to say, I have the series on my Christmas list!
This story is one of heartbreak, love lost, and new love born. The story begins
as twenty year old Ingeborg Strand strives to figure out her plans for the future.
She loves the freedom that life in the Seter brings for the children of her family.
Being the oldest she is in charge of all the children while they are up in the
mountains for the summer. There is always jobs to do, such as cheese to
make, the tending of the lambs and sheep, the milking of the cows and the
cooking for all of the hard workers. With all of the work that needs to be done,
there is a joy and a freedom from the life that awaits them as they go back
home in the fall. An unexpected guest, brings quite the air of excitement to the
Seter. Ingeborg discovers the joy and pain of truly loving. As winter
approaches, the blanket of coldness seems to overtake her. Can Ingeborg ever
love again, how will she ever go to the Seter with all the memories of the past
summer. With the coming spring, Ingborgs heart begins to thaw. Just in time
for Roald Bjorklund to come calling.
