The Other Brother(2002)
(The first book in the Minnesota Brothers series)
A novel by Lena Nelson Dooley
Promises broken and hearts left bare. Olina Sandstrom is on her way to America to marry her fiancee, but in her heart, she carries a secret that stands like an insurmountable wall between her and God. Gustaf Nilsson is the eldest son, so he often is expected to clean up the messes his brother makes. This is not a role he enjoys, and the mission he is on now is the most odious he has ever had. When these two lives collide, will Olina and Gustaf be able to see God's hand in bringing them to this place? Will they let Him lead them both to the better life He planned for them all along?
