Summary

In Minnesota in 1911, Nilda Carlson is torn between society life in the city of Blackduck and spending time with her family back home on the farm. Her employer, Mrs. Schoenleber, gives her more and more responsibility and experience, including recommending new opportunities for her philanthropy. Still new to America herself, Nilda focuses on the area's immigrant community, but she'll have to fight to get her ideas accepted by the locals and donors alike. 

In the meantime, one of her greatest joys is her weekly piano lesson with the handsome schoolteacher, Fritz. But just as Nilda is beginning to realize she has feelings for him, a stylish, affluent young woman moves to Blackduck and monopolizes Fritz's attention. With her humble background, how can Nilda hope to compete with such a sophisticated beauty?

Wonderful Series

As always, I hate to see the end of a series. Being a faithful listener and admirer of Books by Lauraine Snelling, there is sure to be another new story to carry on the many wonderful sagas of the Norwegian Immigrants to the United States of America.

Wonderful

Such a wonderful series! So sad for it to end and could see a spin-off with others as they grow up from the series!

I have loved every single story by this author. I wish there were eons more! Uplifting but with problems in life. Just perfect

Loved it!

Love the combination of Laurianne Snelling’s beautiful storylines and Christina Moore’s perfect narrations. I am excited to see if the name drop of Ingeborg Bjorklund will intertwine these families in future novels!
