Life in Sweden seems like an endless winter for three sisters after their mother's death and father's suicide. Elin feels the weight of responsibility for her sisters' welfare, and when circumstances become unbearable, she writes to her relatives in Chicago, pleading for help.

Joining sixteen million other immigrants who left their homelands for America between 1890 and 1920, Elin, Kirsten, and Sofia begin the long, difficult journey. Enduring the ocean voyage in steerage and detention on Ellis Island, their story is America's story. And in a journey fraught with hardships, each woman will come to understand her secret longings and the meaning of home.

What a journey you are taken on in this wonderful story showing the difficulties these sisters face as they try to immigrate to the US! This book will open your heart to their struggles and will keep you reading as you experience what they experienced as they make their journey. It is an excellent read. Lynn Austin again produces a wonderful story that uplifts and encourages, and gives a good look into the history and events occurring in its setting. What a wonderful book! Couldn't put it down, and wished it lasted longer -- although the ending is just perfect!
