Miracle Downs: Third Novel in The Picnicker Trilogy
A BLANKET BENEDICTION
With the Picnickers, South Dakota born author, Floy Timmerman, began what grew to be a trilogy. In a pioneer saga of the Dakota Territory Hesseman family, the reader received an invitation to join the tables of a reunion where relatives merge information, piecing together events that shaped the fabric of their present-day family.
The story chronicles Elizabeth, who with her one time circus performer husband Tabor, leaves verdant Iowa and migrate to the newly opened Rosebud reservation land in South Dakota.
Readers became so emotionally involved with the eleven young Hessemans that A Blanket Benediction was written to lead one step forward and two steps back to the origin of an Indian blanket that had survived into the next generation. In A Blanket Benediction, Callie, daughter of the youngest Hesseman, Maureen, persists in following the blanket’s trail across Dakota and north into Canada. Clint, whose own ancestry designates him a dubious choice of traveling companion, devotedly supports her in unearthing the root of her mother’s curiosity.
Roman, a Canadian Native American, gifts Callie with his endearing enlightenment and Friar Lucas, the last remaining monk in an abandoned monastery, latches onto the young couple’s potential for preserving his own hope and dream.Now Miracle Downs continues as Callie complements Clint in realizing his life-long ambition and tempts us all to fall in love with their challenging – yet gifted – special daughter.
