Northern Lights Series available in a package deal!

Book 1: Elsa Anders's dream of marrying Peder Ramstad is about to come true. But as this independent, strong-willed woman discovers her own creative gifts--a love for travel, painting, and the sea--can she find happiness with a captain who insists upon leaving her safely on shore?

Leaving their home in Norway behind, Elsa and Peder embark on a new life in  with their closest friends, including: Kaatje Jansen, a woman seeking a new beginning for the sake of her marriage and for the child growing within her; Elsa's sister Tora, a sly young vixen who knows exactly what she wants--and exactly how to get it; and Karl Martensen, a man torn between his friendship for Peder and a forbidden, secret love for Elsa, a man tormented by emotions that threaten to ruin them all.

From the gentle hills of Bergen, Norway, to the rocky coast of Camden, Maine, and across the crashing, danger-filled waves of the open sea--experience an epic saga of perseverance and passion, faith and fidelity, in the Northern Lights series: the new historical series by Lisa Tawn Bergren.

Book 2:The melodramatic lives of three very different immigrant sisters living in the West in the 1880s are documented by Bergren (The Captain's Bride, WaterBrook, 1998) in this historical romance. Action alternates among the women as they struggle not only to exist but to grow closer to God as well. Tora Anders has given up her child to pursue wealth and power as a roadhouse manager for the handsome Trent Storm. Elsa is enjoying an adventurous marriage to a sea captain when an encounter with a pirate threatens to destroy her happiness, and Kaatji raises Tora's daughter along with her own. Since it can be difficult to keep track of the wide range of characters and events, this is best read in series order. Libraries with the first may want to continue with this one.

Book 3: The powerful conclusion of the epic, best-selling Northern Lights family saga. In Midnight Sun, the greatly anticipated conclusion to Lisa Tawn Bergren's Northern Lights series, the journey ends and the future begins for four friends in the wilds of Alaska. Desperate to know if her missing husband still lives, Kaatje hires a rugged yet tenderhearted guide through the perils of the Alaskan wilderness - and into what could be the greatest danger of her life. As captain of the Majestic and a mother of two, Elsa has sought to ease her aching, lonely heart. But when an old friend rekindles the spark of romance, will she allow herself to love again? With her foolish youth behind her, Tora looks forward to her wedding and a fresh start in life. But first she must confront the terrible demons of her past. Captain Karl Martensen, though widely admired, feels no emotion for any of the women in his life. He has only tender memories of the love he once lost - a love who, by God's grace, he may find again. From the fierce Alaskan wilderness to the gaiety of San Francisco society...from the familiar peaks of Bergen, Norway to the dark, churning waters of Cape Horn...witness the glorious finale of this epic family saga as four long-time friends journey out of the shadow of their darkest days into the bright sun awaiting them in the land of the Midnight Sun.
