A story of love, forgiveness and an adventure in Alaska. A friend sent me photos of the aurora and it was so beautiful. Some day I hope I can see it while it is happening. One of God's wonders.
Carrie has love and trust in her family growing up. She would move to the ends of the earth for Finn. In fact she went to great efforts to find him. Little did she know she would fall in love with him.
But Finn felt betrayed by women and so has trust issues he has never addressed. He only had a one sided story of why his Mom left his Dad.
Debbie painted the beauty of Alaska just as a friend of mine has for me over the years - she lives there.
Carrie was willing to give up her life's dreams because of her love for Finn. She will not betray his trust in her.
A book that holds your interest all the way.
Publishers Weekly, 2013-09-02 Contemporary romance queen Macomber (Rose Harbor in Bloom) hits the sweet spot with this tender tale of impractical love. Newspaper reporter Carrie Slayton is sick of covering Chicago society events, so she hops on a plane to the Alaskan bush, determined to track down Finn Dalton, a bestselling author no one knows anything about. Finn hates reporters, guards his privacy, distrusts romance after a bad breakup, and resents his mother for leaving him and his father. Naturally, he refuses to engage in any personal conversation with Carrie when she arrives. But he can't control his attraction to her and slips a few times during her stay, showing his sensitive side. By the time Carrie goes home, they are halfway in love, and they bridge the distance with e-mail and text messages. Carrie has to be extremely patient while Finn works through his issues, but their happy ending is a delicious Christmas miracle well worth waiting for. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
