My Sweet Danish Rose by Tina Peterson Scott----Valentine's Day Book Blitz Day 12

Alone in the world, and counting on love to triumph ...
Berta Erichsen is an energetic fifteen-year-old with a mind of her own. Last seen in Farewell, My Denmark (2013), and with visions of happily ever after, she impulsively stays behind when her family joins the 1863 Mormon pilgrimage to America.
When Berta finds herself homeless and alone in her Mormon faith, three men add to the confusion and danger of her life; the prominent man who deceives and defrauds both her and her family, but is the only one who offers her shelter; the childhood sweetheart who romances but hasn’t proposed; the handsome stableman that stole her Book of Mormon. Berta must uncover their hidden motives and make decisions to save her faith, her heart, and her future.

“Ha!” Papa scoffed. “A gentleman wouldn’t wait until the eve of our departure to say he can only come up with half the remaining payment. If you’d even told us a week ago, I could have sold farm tools and furniture to help make up the difference.”
“We can’t cry over spilt milk. Do you want my money, or don’t you?”
I looked at Catherine. If we didn’t have enough money to immigrate, what would become of us? She put a finger to her lips before I could ask.
“You know very well that we’re leaving tomorrow,” said Papa. “We’ve already paid our passage to America. I need that money to make a new life for my family.”
“Then I’ll require your signature, here.”
“My oldest daughter, Catherine, is staying in Denmark. She won’t be leaving for her aunt’s until noon tomorrow.” Papa still sounded angry. “Don’t take possession of the property until the following morn.”
Tina Peterson Scott was born and raised in Mesa, Arizona. Books played an important part in her childhood, and for much of it, she could be found nestled against a branch high in their pecan tree, reading. Her favorites were fantasy, and mystery. It delighted Tina when her mother read to her from Grimm’s Fairy-tales and the stories of Hans Christian Andersen.
Tina and her husband have seven children and a growing number of grandchildren. Other than large family get-togethers involving lots of food and fun, she enjoys writing, watercolor painting, long walks, ice cream, and traveling to Europe—especially to her father’s ancestral home of Denmark.
