The Icecutters Daughter Book Review

Merrill has worked all her life to honor her Mother’s last request to take care of her brothers and her Father. But because of her dedication and devotion to her mother’s request she’s never considered a future of her own. When Rurik Jorgenson comes to the little town, Merrill starts to realize that maybe there is a different path for future. The Icecutters Daughter is one of those books that is a joy to read and you don’t want to put down.

The Icecutters Daughter Book Review

Icecutter’s Daughter, The (Land of Shining Water) is a straightforward, relaxing tale of devotion to family, loyalty to friends, the importance of communication and not jumping to conclusions. I love watching the devotion that Merill has for her father and brothers and the way the brothers are so protective of Merril and her future.

Rurik Jorgenson comes to town with his own share of problems: a best friend with ulterior motives and a former fiancée who loves her brother so much she is willing to risk her own life and reputation. Rurik finds himself in the middle of the worst scandal of his life, facing possible murder charges and the loss of his entire life as he knows it. It was refreshing to see the way the main character looked after his aging uncle and helps the community find the truth.

I enjoy reading many styles of books but the Icecutters Daughter ranks up there as one of the favorites of the year.

About the Book

Merrill Krause longs for a family of her own, but she’s bound by a promise to her dying mother to care for her father and older brothers until they no longer need her. She enjoys being part of the family business, harvesting ice during the brutal Minnesota winters. Merrill actively takes part, possessing a keen ability to work with the horses–despite the advice of her good friend, who disapproves of her unladylike behavior.

When Rurik Jorgenson arrives in their small town to join his uncle doing carpentry, he soon crosses paths with Merrill. But unlike other men, who are often frightened away by her older brothers, Rurik isn’t intimidated by them or by Merrill’s strength and lack of femininity. As he thrives under the mentorship of his uncle, Rurik dreams of inheriting the business and claiming Merrill as his wife. But while he is determined to start a new life, the past is determined to follow him when his former fiancee and her brother show up in town. Soon Rurik is put in the center of a major scandal that may damage his relationship with Merrill. Can they learn to trust God–and each other–and embrace the promise of love?
