Left alone when her parents die, Susannah travels west as a mail-order bride, having promised to marry her pastor's brother, Jesse, a homesteader in the Dakota territory. Painfully shy, Susannah doesn't feel she's worthy of Jesse and is constantly worrying that he will send her away. Will a hard winter and a miscarriage change her feelings about her husband and her future with him?

- Publisher

Hundreds of miles from home, Susannah faces an uncertain future as a mail-order bride on the untamed Dakota prairie.

When her parents die suddenly, and no suitors call, Susannah resigns herself to the only option available: becoming a mail-order bride. Agreeing to marry her pastor's brother, Jesse, Susannah leaves the only home she's ever known for the untamed frontier of the Dakota Territory.

Her new husband is more loving and patient with her than she believes she deserves. Still, there is also a wildness to him that mirrors the wilderness surrounding them. And Susannah finds herself constantly on edge. But Jesse's confidence in her?and his faith in God's perfect plan?slowly begin to chip away at the wall she hides behind.

When she miscarries in the brutal Dakota winter, Susannah's fledgling faith in herself and in God begins to crumble. Still, Jesse's love is unwavering. Just when it seems like winter will never end, Susannah finally sees the first tentative evidence of spring. And with it, the realization that more than the landscape has changed.

She looks to the future with a renewed heart. Yet in her wildest dreams, she couldn't predict all that awaits her.

Lots of Twists and Turns
4 stars By Charissa , Nov 25 2016
This book portrays the dangers and difficulties faced by the early Dakota settlers quite well. From the problems caused by living in a soddy to the uneasy alliance between the Native Indians. The author keeps her readers guessing to the end and each event in the novel is believable. I particularly liked the way the two main characters 'matured' in their relationships within themselves, each other and God. A good read for those interested in American historical fiction.
