Seven years later, she has established herself in the big city of Chicago as a clerk in the Post Office for the determined Mrs Thompson. In her free time, she has fun with her friends and leads a worryless life – until a fateful telegram shatters her world. Elsa’s father has fallen gravely ill and she must immediately return to Sweden…
