Summary:

Library Journal Top Pick author Lynn Austin has garnered an unprecedented number of Christy Awards for brilliantly crafted historical gems, including A Proper Pursuit. In this sweeping saga, three Swedish sisters endure an 1890s Atlantic crossing, an Ellis Island detention, and various other trials as they struggle to find love, faith, and home.
First came their mother's death. Then their father's suicide. For orphans Elin, Kirsten, and Sofia, life stretches on like an endless winter. When circumstances become unbearable, they write their Chicago relatives, desperate for a safe haven. Soon the three find themselves among the huddled masses bound for America—the promised land of dreams and second chances. Yet amidst the hardships of their journey, these brave young ladies determine to let nothing stop them from reaching a place they can call home.

    WAY too much scripture and preaching added to what would have otherwise been a very good story line. I found myself fast forwarding at least a half dozen times through bible quotations so I could get back to what I really bought the book for. I wanted an entertaining story not a Sunday sermon. I will have a bad taste in my mouth after being force fed religion disguised as a fictional best seller.
