Ingrid Larsen, a young Swedish immigrant, arrives in Michigan in 1871 to search for her brother who has disappeared into the woods to work the dangerous lumber camps. Destitute and barely hanging on to hope, she encounters a newly-widowed farmer who is struggling to raise five children on his own. Marriage would solve both of their problems, and so Ingrid proposes to a man she barely knows. She will fight to protect her new family--but the hardest battle of all will be winning the heart of her new husband.
Readers who loved The Measure of Katie Calloway will be pleased to find more of Miller's emotive and descriptive writing here--and to discover that love is more than words.

Another excellent book!
My husband and I both thoroughly enjoyed this second book in this series, as well as the ones related to Amish characters. Serena's research and writing fictional characters around history is so captivating! Wish she had more books out there to read, we're HOOKED!

This story held my interest from beginning to end. The characters were well developed and yet there was some amount if intrigue left for the reader. Loved that this story was based on some historical facts and information. It moved along at a great pace and ended on a positive note. Good summer read. Loved the Christian overtones.
