Swedish immigrant Kajsa Svensson Runeberg fights to survive and build a homestead on the Kansas prairie as she and her family faces the trials of weather, disease, accidents, and loneliness.
This historical fiction, written in the form of diary entries dating 1868 to 1888, is based on the actual woman who homesteaded the author’s childhood home. True stories gathered on this Swedish family and community show the determination these pioneers had, to face and overcome the conflicts and tragedy that happened in their lives.

Only… Nothing is ever as easy as it seems…
A southern tale of rags to riches where a man’s worth is ultimately found in his heart.
The American Civil War has ended, but Alaina McKenna still awaits news about her husband, Braeden. Did he die in a Yankee prison? Was he buried in a shallow grave on a Virginia battlefield? Or has he turned his back on the specter of death and loss around him and sought solitude west of the Mississippi River, never to return home, again?
As Christmas nears, Alaina deflects the advances of a suitor in the neighboring county, choosing to cling instead to hope and her belief that Braeden will return. As winter’s chill settles upon her farm, Alaina cries out to God in one final Christmas Prayer.
When loss lingers … love – even beyond death. For it is through heartbreak that God opens doorways to hope.
