(Blackbird Mountain #1)
When Aven Norgaard leaves Norway to serve as housekeeper to her late husband’s cousins in Appalachia, she expects lads in need of care, not three grown men—each in need of a wife and bound by a powerful brotherhood. As the men carve out a living by brewing artisan liquor, young Haakon’s pursuit tempts Aven’s lonely spirit . . . but it is his deaf brother, Thor, whose silent strength shows her the depths of real love.
Unable to speak to any woman, Thor Norgaard never anticipates Aven will befriend him, let alone treat him as her safe harbor. Though hard cider is their livelihood and his greatest talent, he fights his way to sobriety with Haakon’s help, defying the bottle for Aven’s hand—only to face a battle of the heart that tests even the strongest bonds of brotherhood.
Joanne Bischof is a new author to me. I have never read a book by her, but Sons of Blackbird Mountain was recommended to me and this was an amazing book! Put all books aside and grab this book. It is a great, sweet romance that will have you turning the page. The characters are well developed and I love that the author chose to write about the deaf community.
I am in awe of the writing style of Bischof and found the language of this story to be beautifully compelling. Her writing style is amazing and you will enjoy this novel.
This book was a delight and I treasured every minute of it. The author has a way with words and her writing is amazing. I highly recommend this book.
