Summary
When Signe, her husband, Rune, and their three boys arrive in Minnesota from Norway to help a relative clear his land of lumber, they dream of owning their own farm and building a life in the New World. But Uncle Einar and Aunt Gird are hard, demanding people, and Signe and her family soon find themselves worked nearly to the bone in order to repay the cost of their voyage. At this rate, they will never have land or a life of their own. Signe tries to trust God but struggles with anger and bitterness. She has left behind the only life she knew, and while it wasn't an easy life, it wasn't as hard as what she now faces. When a new addition to the family arrives, Signe begins to see how God has been watching over them throughout their ordeal. But after all that has happened, can she still believe in the promise of a bright future?

Summary
To immigrate to the United States or not? That is the question facing pregnant Signe and her family. They go... and then wish they hadn't. After a difficult trip from Norway to Minnesota, they are met with demanding relatives who force them to endure harsh labor to repay their passage. Giving fascinating insight into early-1900s' life and the trials immigrants faced, The Promise of Dawn is the first of a series. -- Description by Dawn Towery
