With their eldest son nearly to the age when he will be drafted into military service, Reinhardt and Lillian Vogt decide to immigrate to America, the land of liberty, with their three sons and Reinhardt's adopted brother, Eli. But when tragedy strikes during the voyage, Lillian and Eli are forced into an agreement neither desires. Determined to fulfill his obligation to Reinhardt, Eli plans to see Lillian and her sons safely settled on their Kansas homestead--and he's equally determined that the boys will be reared in the Mennonite faith. What he doesn't expect is his growing affection for Lillian--and the deep desire to be part of a family.

In 1872, when the Vogts discover their oldest son, Henrik, will be drafted into military service when he turns 18, they prepare to leave Russia to find new lives and religious freedom in America. Reinhardt Vogt's foster brother, Eli, joins them on the dangerous ocean voyage, along with the couple's three young sons. Traci Svensgaard gives an authentic sound to this historical Mennonite story. She portrays the family's sadness when they lose a young child aboard ship, as well as the oldest son's mysterious anger toward his parents. Svensgaard renders a variety of accents in this somewhat formulaic story of love, loyalty, and self-sacrifice. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
