While many Scandinavian immigrant stories tell about rural life in America, this is a story of the faith and courage of a mother of nine children born in Lake View, one of Chicago’s Swedish communities. Alida and Olof Lind raised their children to be committed Americans. Alida’s strength of character and clear faith led her through deep poverty in the Depression years and overwhelming grief from the deaths of three of her children.
