A Christy Award Winner

Synopsis

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.

This book is amazingly awesome! It's the story of three sisters and you get to cheer for each one of them. It's touching, thrilling and you just can't keep the book down!

It's easy and pleasant to read and written in Lynn Austin's beautiful way to describe things, places, people and feelings.

A fascinating book, by an awesome author!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Hard to put down romantic historical 15. November 2008
Von Michelle Sutton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This story had so much intrigue, suspense, peril, yearning, hope, and faith in the midst of trials that it truly inspired me. The faith journey was SO believeable. The pain they went through made a lot of sense, and I truly felt for them. My heart grieved right along with them. I found myself thinking about the story all the time until I could steal away and read more. That, to me, is the sign of a fabulous read.

I am a real sucker for romance, which is sprinkled generously throughout the book, too. Plus, the heartache and pain resulting from dysfunctional situations and sin is portrayed realistically. While not edgy in regards to the details, Ms. Austin did a magnificent job of making me care about their pain and showing how deeply they hurt. Yet she balance that by showing how that makes them love more deeply as well.

In my opinion Ms. Austin is one of the best historical fiction authors at putting her characters in impossible situations and showing how God provides a way in the midst of heartache. She shows how God allows it to make His children grow in faith, and that He is always there even if He doesn't always take away the hardship and pain. And He can transform even the hardest of hearts when people love Him and each other like the Scriptures say.

The relationship that Sophia developed with Ludwig was so amazing it took my breath away. I NEVER would've thought to draw out the character's faith and introduce them to true love through sharing God's Word the way the author managed to do. And to use the Bible as a tool to communicate between their languages was brilliant. This tender relationship was beautifully developed and one of my favorite parts of the story. It made my heart sing!

I can't say enough good things about this story. I'm definitely putting this book on my list of favorites for 2008!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazing, inspiring story! 21. September 2008
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Lynn Austin never fails to amaze me as a writer. She writes in the most amazing way and never disappoints. I kept hoping that the book was not going to end. I was so drawn into each next chapter that it was next to impossible to put down. This book had so many wonderful examples of the kind of relationship that one can truly have with Jesus Christ. I think anyone would enjoy this story. It made me laugh, it made me cry, it truly drew me into the plot. A must read!!

4.0 von 5 Sternen An Epic Adventure from Lynn Austin 16. Juni 2011
Von Katie Garvin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
It didn't take many pages for me to be drawn into the plight of Elin and her sisters - Kirsten and Sofia. After losing their parents, their Uncle took over their farm and made life unbearable for Elin as she tried to protect her sisters from him. Finally, when she decides to escape to America to live with her mother's favorite brother who had left for America years ago, their hard journey to America and freedom began.

I loved reading about the three sisters during their journey to America and how, even though they had their differences and dark secrets, they stuck together through it all. They grew so much after reaching America - even shy, dependent Sofia - the baby of the family - changed on the trip to America and established a career for herself so that she could help provide for her sisters.

There were 2 parts that I would urge caution for some younger readers. The reason Elin made her sisters leave with her to America was because of what her Uncle did to her and what he was about to do to her sister, Sofia. When she discovered her Uncle's eyes were beginning to turn from her to her younger sister, she imminently knew she had to leave America. Nothing is explicit or even plainly said, but what Elin had to endure at the hand of her Uncle is alluded to several times.

Another point of caution is that one of the sisters mistakenly ends up pregnant. Nothing is explained, except for when the sister begins to get sick and the doctor announces she is pregnant. At that time in history - 1897 - it was a scandal to have a child out of wedlock, and the sister has to live with her foolish actions. So, in some ways, it was a good lesson to show that actions have consequences. But, as I said, Austin handles everything so well that nothing is inappropriate.

Besides these two points, the book was great - filled with lessons, special moments, and growing periods for all three sisters. Towards the end of the book, it got kind of sad as the sisters began to branch out and build their own lives: they had been through so much together! But all in all, I thoroughly enjoyed the book and will certainly pick up the book again to read! I highly recommend it - Lynn Austin did a wonderful job touching lives with this story!!

Thanks to Bethany House for sending me a review copy!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Very good but slow 20. Mai 2009
Von Maizyblue - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
After reading Hidden Places and A Woman's Place, neither of which I could put down, I found this book a bit of a disappointment. The characters were not as well rounded as they could've been, their reactions to events too predictable and repetitious, and the continual hiding of secrets between Kirsten and Elin tiresome. I wanted to shake them and tell them to spit them out and get on with it. While I wasn't as pleased with this book as I'd hoped, I'm continuing to read others of Ms. Austin's because overall, I like her stories.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Agonizingly Repetitive 11. April 2009
Von A Face From the Past - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
After having suffered through this book, I came to Amazon to see if everyone else was as miserable as I had been during the process. I was surprised to see all the glowing reviews. The story line was perhaps a nice idea, but the book should have been half the length. I can't ever remember reading a book in which the plot/problem was restated as many times as it was in this story, and I was finally reduced to yelling, "Enough already!" at the audiobook narrator by halfway through the book, as one or another character agonized yet again that she "just couldn't" share this or that secret or allow something to happen, why she couldn't return to Sweden (like we'd forgotten?), or even worse, talk to strangers in a country where the girls didn't know a soul. Right... Bethany House could stand to add an editor or two to their staff to help condense repetitive prose like this to a tightly written novel. Interesting concept for a story, and it could have been enjoyable, but as it stands, I'm reminded very much school year tricks of employing redundancy in order to reach a required word count for an assignment.
