But when the New World's promises turn into painful uncertainties, Nora discovers God's plan is bigger than her grandest dreams. Armed with a water-stained letter, a faded photograph, and a ticket from Norway to America, Clara Johnson journeys to Soldall ready to fall into the arms of her Dakota Dreams. But who she meets instead is a rough and rugged blacksmith named Dag Weinlander. Rebekka Stenesrude has poured her life into her students, only to see her beloved school burned to the ground.

Since childhood, Mary Moen and Will Dunfrey have been best friends, but now the war to end all wars - World War I - brings news that Will is missing in action. Two years pass and another man's marriage proposal awaits Mary's decision. Who is her Dakota Destiny?
