After marrying Will Fogarty, the only son of Eliza Fogarty, Caroline Lindemyer learns that marriage is not what she thought it would be. Will dreams only of being a sea captain. Caroline seeks a Cinderella story, but living with her in-laws while her husband is at sea is not the fairy tale she imagined.
Caroline resists the domination of her mother-in-law and fights to make her dreams come true. She discovers that love and faith are the only things that will carry her through tragic circumstances when a sense of duty and obligation fail. While she learns that true freedom is only found in obedience to God, the women’s suffrage movement also gives her an opportunity to make her voice heard.
This final novel in the From a Heavenly Land trilogy, set in late nineteenth and early twentieth century Florida and told from Caroline’s perspective, is the completion of Eliza and Julia Atzeroth’s life. In the final novel of this beloved trilogy, Cathy Slusser, a professional historian in Manatee County, Florida, carries you through a woman’s struggle to gain independence and make an impact on Florida’s future.
