About the Book

Title: Sons of Blackbird Mountain

Author: Joanne Bischof

Genre: Historical Romance

After the tragic death of her husband, Aven Norgaard is beckoned to give up her life in Norway to become a housekeeper in the rugged hills of Nineteenth-Century Appalachia. Upon arrival, she finds herself in the home of her late husband’s cousins—three brothers who make a living by brewing hard cider on their three-hundred acre farm. Yet even as a stranger in a foreign land, Aven has hope to build a new life in this tight-knit family.

But her unassuming beauty disrupts the bond between the brothers. The youngest two both desire her hand, and Aven is caught in the middle, unsure where—and whether—to offer her affection. While Haakon is bold and passionate, it is Thor who casts the greatest spell upon her. Though Deaf, mute, and dependent on hard drink to cope with his silent pain, Thor possesses a sobering strength.

As autumn ushers in the apple harvest, the rift between Thor and Haakon deepens and Aven faces a choice that risks hearts. Will two brothers’ longing for her quiet spirit tear apart a family? Can she find a tender belonging in this remote, rugged, and unfamiliar world?

A haunting tale of struggle and redemption, Sons of Blackbird Mountain is a portrait of grace in a world where the broken may find new life through the healing mercy of love.

Aven comes from Norway to America after her husband passes away. She goes to her husband cousin place where three brothers are living. She first meets Thor who doesn’t talk and cannot hear but can read lips. Thor became my favorite character, he was so caring and protective of Aven. He was also a very hard worker. But he did have an addiction problem with alcohol but he was able to overcome it. I enjoyed reading a book about a guy being Deaf back 1890’s and how it did not keep him from having a good life. It did take a little bit to really get into the book but with Thor being deaf added so much to the story. I received an complementary copy of the book from Celebrate Lit. I was not required to write an positive review and this is my own opinion.
