In An Unlikely Blessing, we are introduced to Alex Armstrong who is a new pastor and he is assigned to a small two church parish in South Dakota in the farming community of Hilltop Township. When he gets there he is welcomed by his congregation with a multitude of different problems and they are all coming to him for help. The description of the farms and countryside was wonderful and I felt that I was there with Alex. The two parishes are feuding and he is trying to bring them together and his faith is being tested daily.
There were a lot of characters that I had to keep track of but they all had their little quirks that had me laughing throughout the book. I especially liked willard Packard, a young boy who loves and protects animals, and Alex becomes attached to the boy. Some of the congregations problems were unsolved but I feel that they will be solved in the next two books of the series. The book was easy to read and I look forward to reading the next book in the series Surprising Grace.
