Looking back through all the heartache and the body-breaking labor, Ingeborg Bjorkland knew that God had been with them every step of the way. Dreams that had turned into veritable nightmares had been reshaped with the promise of a new day rising, and her marriage to Haaken had been its sure sign.Hjelmer travels west to work on the railroad, and after sending only one letter to Penny, who has agreed to wait for him, he is not heard from again. As the months pass, Penny is pursued by other eligible suitors, and her love for Hjelmer is sorely tried. Will he ever return to keep his promise?

From The Palace To The Prison And Back To The Palace is one of the most provocative, candid and scathing books Ive ever read. If this book had been published before the election, Mr. Bush would not be in office. No one has ever gotten the kind of diverse collaboration and put them together in an anthology like this one. This is motivation for students, political satire, sobriquet and entertainment as has never been written before. How do you get John Grisham, Denzel Washington, Montel Williams and Jay Z to contribute to the same book? Harper Collins should be proud! Trick Daddy, Jimmy Kimmel, Jay Leno, David Letterman and Howard Stern will have a field day with this book!
