Ever so slowly the Dakota Territory is being transformed into rich farmlands. Finally the Bjorklund family and their neighbors are reaping the promised harvest that brought them across the Atlantic from Norway. With the coming of the railroad, the small town of Blessing has begun to prosper. But for Ingeborg, Haaken, and their children, challenges still remain. The wheat harvest is in full swing. After their own fields are harvested, Haaken and the neighboring men take the steam engine and the separator to thresh for other homesteaders. With Haaken away and the fields standing idle, Ingeborg is afraid to wait to finish the heavy fall work. Will she regret taking the team to the field herself?
Ever so slowly Dakota Territory is being transformed from a vast prairie into rich farmland. With the coming of the railroad, the small town of Blessing begins to prosper, and the Bjorklund family is reaping the promised harvest that had lured them from their beloved home in Norway.
But for Ingeborg and Haakan, realizing their dreams will not come without a struggle. After their own fields are harvested, Haakan and the neighboring men take the steam engine and the separator on the road, threshing for other homesteaders in return for a portion of their grain. With Haakan away and the fields standing idle, Ingeborg frets over work yet to be done. Fearing an early change of seasons, she takes matters into her own hands.
Has the land become more important to Ingeborg than her own family?
