Dear Mother and Father, After all those years, I was certain Jakob Hirsch had forgotten me. Then came his proposal of marriage. With more impulse than wisdom, I crossed the ocean to begin a new life with him in Shadow Creek, Idaho. Little did I dream of the changes eleven years had brought to the man I once lovedwhich included three small children waiting with him at the station. I will not marry a stranger who no longer loves me, but I have agreed to look after Jakobs children until the harvest is in. A cabin on his property provides me with respectable living quarters. If only it were as easy to separate my heart from this family! It will be difficult to leave when the time comes, for I am falling in love with these little onesand, truth be told, with Jakob. Your loving daughter, Karola Breit In Idaho, the land is good but life is hard for a German émigré whose dreams have turned to dust. Love found and lost can shatter a mans faith.

SqwigglesCaliforniaAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5A good ending to the seriesOctober 22, 2014SqwigglesCaliforniaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3This is the final book in the Coming to America Series. I was expecting something similar to the previous books and that's what you get. If you have enjoyed any of the other books, you will enjoy this one too. I would give the book 3.5 stars. I thought it was a good book, but not great. A lot of the things that happened in the book were very cliche. It's something I have read in multiple Christian fiction novels. The story was very predictable. The book won't be memorable, but it was a quick and easy read. I would recommend the book to fans of Robin Lee Hatcher.
