From the deeply forested banks of the Washington Territory to the burgeoning city of San Francisco, and across the danger-filled waters of the turbulent open sea, this compelling second volume in the exciting "Northern Lights" series spins an epic saga of perseverance and faith. The novel tells the story of four friends who travel from Bergen, Norway, to the rocky coast of Camden, Maine, in search of a new life in America. But once there, they follow separate paths---until love, tragedy, and faith in God begin to draw them back together!
Determined to live the "good life" no matter what the price, Tora Anders weaves a web of lies that could cost her everything she cares for--including a successful future and the man she loves.
"I found myself immediately involved in the stories of Elsa and Peder, Kaatje and her wayward husband, Soren, Tora and her quest for wealth and power, and a host of other people who sailed with them to America to fulfill their dreams. Lisa Tawn Bergren has a straightforward, evocative style of writing that makes her characters breathe. They walk right across the page and straight into your heart."
