THE SWEEPING PLAINS HELD THE PROMISE OF A LIFETIME
Eager to begin her first teaching position, lovely Linnea Brandonberg stepped off the train looking as grown up and worldly as her eighteen years would allow. The golden fields and fragrant wheat of Alamo, North Dakota, were as new and different as the Westgaard family with whom she would live.
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 Westgaard, 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.
