Imagine surveying your farmstead on the last day of your life, reviewing the decades of joys, hardships, and changes that have taken place on the eighty acres you have called home for the past fifty years. Would you feel at peace or find remorse at the decisions that took place in your life?
This third audiobook in the Planting Dreams series portrays Charlotta Johnson as she recalls the events that shaped her family's destiny. A mixture of fact and fiction, based on the author's family, this audiobook reviews the events that shaped this Swedish immigrants family as her children reached adulthood and had families of their own.
Join Charlotta as she reminisces about the important places and events in her past as she bids farewell to her mortal life on the Kansas prairie.
Listeners compare Hubalek's books as a combination of Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House on the Prairie books, The Emigrants series by Vilhelm Moberg, and a Willa Cather novel.

Wonderful book especially for history buffs. I love reading old pioneer letters and diaries. A book like this really brings history to life.
