Publisher's Summary

It had taken four long, difficult years to tame the virgin prairie of Dakota Territory. Looking back through all the heartache and the body-breaking labor, Ingeborg Bjorklund knew that God had been with them every step of the way. Dreams that had turned into veritable nightmares had been reshaped with the promise of a new day rising, and her marriage to Haaken had been its sure sign.
Hjelmer travels west to work on the railroad, and, after sending only one letter to Penny, who has agreed to wait for him, he is not heard from again. As the months pass, Penny is pursued by other eligible suitors, and her love for Hjelmer is sorely tried. Will he ever return to keep his promise?

#3 book in this Red River series

I feel like I am there for every event in the book! I really enjoyed the quilting bees because the women used the materials saved each year. Nothing was ever wasted: not food, sewing material, or anything. I enjoyed the men building wood buildings and buying more equipment to sustain the farms.

The characters are individuals whom I'd like to know.

Great narration also.

A suggestion: please number the books in each series. I have to go elsewhere to see what to listen to next.
