Jove one-volume edition/March 1986
The sweeping plains held the promise of a life time
Eager to begin her teaching position, lovely Linnea Brandonberg stepped off the train looking as grown-up and worldly as he eighteen years would allow. The golden fields and fragrant wheat of Alamo, North Dakota, were as new and different as the Westgard family, with whom she would now share her life.
Farm life in 1917 was hard and bitter – but tiny, spirited Linnea was determined to brave its challenges. And as World War I threatened to take those she held dear, Linnea grew to womanhood in the arms of Teddy Westgard, a man who thought he’d never find love.
A story of passion. A story of heartache. A story of a way of life that will long be remembered – with people and places as real as the emotions of the heart.
