''I came to America expecting to be married.''
Clara Johanson had a ticket to America and a photograph of a blond, curly-haired, blue-eyed man to prove her point. But when she arrived in Soldahl, North Dakota, the man who met her at the train station, Dag Weinlander, was definitely not blond and, to make matters worse, he obviously hadn't bathed in days. At least she knew she would see the joy in her sister's face when she surprised her by arriving at her Soldahl home.
As Clara began her unexpected life as a single, Norwegian immigrant, she experienced the truth of God's Word that ''weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.'' Along the way she helped others, even Dag Weinlander, experience that truth too, as she stepped into a new Dakota Dream far different than the one that brought her all the way from Bergen, Norway.
Dakota Dream is the second book of the Dakota Series that features the intertwining lives of five inspiring women, all who live in the early 1900s in the immigrant community of Soldahl, North Dakota.
