Publisher's Summary

In this sweeping saga, three Swedish sisters endure an 1890s Atlantic crossing, an Ellis Island detention, and various other trials as they struggle to find love, faith, and home.First came their mother's death. Then their father's suicide. For orphans Elin, Kirsten, and Sofia, life stretches on like an endless winter. When circumstances become unbearable, they write their Chicago relatives, desperate for a safe haven. Soon the three find themselves among the huddled masses bound for America - the promised land of dreams and second chances. Yet amidst the hardships of their journey, these brave young ladies determine to let nothing stop them from reaching a place they can call home.

Another Great One

Lynn Austin has yet to disappoint me with one of her stories. Always so neatly woven together & mixed with history I find them hard to resist and put down. This is most certainly Christian Fiction, which for me is another added bonus.

Some listeners may feel concerned upon the opening scene where it's implied that something very wrong has happened between an uncle & a niece, but whatever that thing is, it's never mentioned in any detail in the book. It's merely an always lingering fact between some of the characters.

very enjoyable, hard to put down

I really enjoyed this book, I could hardly put it aside. It was realistic in it's portrail of the struggles one faces as a result of abuse. Yet the message of hope was evident. I quickly fell in love with each of the girls and wanted the best for each. The narrator did a good job over all but her voice seemed a little too mature for a story about young women.
