I am a fan of Lynn Austin, and I have read all of her books, some of them twice. See her other work on her site here. This one got off to a slow start. Maybe it was because I was reading it in the large-print edition. However, after a couple of chapters, I really got involved in the story of the three orphaned Swedish sisters on their journey to a new life in America.
It’s a great read, and an award winner. What more could you want.
