“An engrossingly intimate family portrait” – Kirkus Reviews
“I truly enjoyed your story. Your description of your great grandmother and her life made her so real to me… I relearned so much history and you gave such a vivid picture of what life must have been like for your ancestors and the people in those times. I feel lucky to have been privy to such an intimate story.” — Raymie
“This book was a perfect gift for my sister who loves to read historical fiction!” — Penny C.
“I devoured the book!” — Kathy H.
Join Christina as she chronicles her way through her immigration to America from Sweden and her subsequent life in a Swedish area of Chicago-land in the late 1880′s and early 1900′s. She continues to tell her family’s story and the choices that were made through her son, her great-granddaughter, and her disabled great-great granddaughter, who is living in the Seattle area and cannot verbalize her own story.
This story shows a family’s love can sustain us through many adversities, and that one person’s choices can have a dramatic effect on many lives.
