Publisher's Summary

With their eldest son nearly to the age when he will be drafted into military service, Reinhardt and Lillian Vogt decide to immigrate to America, the land of liberty, with their three sons and Reinhardt's adopted brother, Eli. But when tragedy strikes during the voyage, Lillian and Eli are forced into an agreement neither desires.

Determined to fulfill his obligation to Reinhardt, Eli plans to see Lillian and her sons safely settled on their Kansas homestead - and he's equally determined that the boys will be reared in the Mennonite faith. What he doesn't expect is his growing affection for Lillian - and the deep desire to be part of a family.

weak heroine, extremely frustrating

This is the story of an inconvenient marriage with a very weak want to shout at get a grip and pull your self together heroine. No wonder men think woman needs a Man to think because some do. Who after a domineering husband and giving birth to 3 sons is missish like a 15 year-old virgin about a doctor exam to enter country? And of course she doesn't want her sons there. Really? Story has such potential but writting falls flat. The hero deserves so much more.

Good story

What did you like best about this story?

Eli's commitment to God, to do what was right. God's grace.

Would you be willing to try another one of Traci Svensgaard’s performances?

No. I did not like her performance. I could hear her breathing most of the time, deep gasping type breathing, very annoying.

Any additional comments?

The music was annoying, too loud, drowned out the words.
