Publisher's Description

Brought to their knees by the Great Drought of the 1930s, Will Hasper and his family give up their farm in Wisconsin to join a federal government project starting a colony of transplanted farmers in the Matanuska Valley of Alaska. However, the colonists meet resistance from earlier homesteaders in the Valley and their leader, Ray Townsend. Laurel, Will’s daughter, who put aside her own desires and dreams to follow her family to Alaska, finds herself torn between two men vying for her love—Adam, a reporter writing a story on the colony’s experiences, and Robert, a colonist who can offer Laurel the stability she needs. For the colony to survive, they must all learn to trust God’s promises.

    I am 21 years old and I have never read a book all the way threw and stayed interested. This is a book you will not be able to put down without wondering what come next, laurel wanted to go haome but she listened to what God wanted her to do and Adam wanted the traveling life as a young reporter and didn't want to give up the only life he knew come to find out Gods plans always turn out better then ours do but only if we are willing to listen. Bonnie you really have a way with words and i enjoyed your book I can't wait to read the other two to this series

    You'll be hooked and won't want to put this book down until you've finished it.Laura made her plans. She would go to Alaska and help her parents get settled on that new frontier. Then she would return to the States to go to college, build a career, create her own place in the sun. But Laura's plans changed and so did she. And, of course, so did her life.This story is reminescent of many a young woman who maps out a wonderful future only to have a change of heart and find that God has something better, happier, and more exciting than anything she can imagine.
