It has required long, difficult years to tame the virgin prairie of Dakota Territory, but in spite of heartache and back-breaking labour, the hardy immigrants recognize that God has been with them every step, and their homesteads are now a town. Meanwhile, Hjelmer travels west to work on the railroad, but after sending only one letter to Penny, who has agreed to wait for him, he is not heard from againches Will he return to keep his promise? When a natural disaster nearly devastates the immigrants, they wonder what it will take to make their dreams a reality. Sequel to A new day rising, followed by The reapers song. 1997.
