In this novel a twenty-one-year old widow arrives during the nineteenth century from Norway to an apple orchard in the Virginia hills only to discover that her husband’s aunt has died leaviing three sons who are grown men, not young boys as she had assumed. This sets up considerable plot tension centering around romantic apprehension, choice, and competition. “Beloved author Joanne Bishof doesn’t disappoint with her latest beautifully written, heartrending tale, The Sons of Blackbird Mountain. Her lyrical style is carefully woven together with authentic faith and unique characters that won’t be soon forgotten. It will be a quick favorite for historical romance readers.” – Elizabeth Byler Younts. The author, Joanne Bischof is an award-winning Christian romance writer based in Southern California.
