Ingrid Larsen, a young Swedish immigrant, arrives in Michigan in 1871 to search for her brother who has disappeared into the woods to work the dangerous lumber camps. Destitute and barely hanging on to hope, she encounters a newly-widowed farmer who is struggling to raise five children on his own. Marriage would solve both of their problems, and so Ingrid proposes to a man she barely knows. She will fight to protect her new family-- but the hardest battle of all will be winning the heart of her new husband.

Another book from the Michigan Northwoods series. A good, clean family drama when you are looking for something a little lighter to read. Liked the author's note stating this book was based on her grandmother's life and other historical events from the time period.
