Summary
It's 1896 when Norwegian American Helga Estby and her 19-year-old daughter Clara accept a wager from the fashion industry to walk from Spokane, Washington to New York City within seven months in an effort to earn $10,000, money they desperately need to save their family farm. When they return emptyhanded, based on secrets she learned on the trip, Clara chooses to leave the family and change her name--resulting in a 20-year separation from the only life she has ever known.
Critique
This gentle and inspirational read is based on a true story and teaches lessons about forgiveness, acceptance and God's greater plan.
