Soul of the Storm
Charlotte MacGregor lost the thrill of conquering mountains five years ago when her sister disappeared on a hiking adventure without her. Still guilt-ridden, Charlotte heads for a vacation to rustic Vermont with a friend—where she's surrounded by reminders of her devastating loss and plagued with unanswered questions.
Matiu Christiansen is an outdoors buff. He works multiple jobs to save for his dream of owning an outfitter in New Zealand. He's never quite felt at home in the United States and he yearns for his Maori roots, but his attraction to Charlotte puts a kink in his plans to move home later this year.
Thrown together by coincidence, Charlotte and Matiu form a kindred bond through their shared love of the outdoors. Can Charlotte surmount her demons to assist Matiu on a rescue when a late-season snowstorm hits? And can Matiu help Charlotte heal from the pain of the past?
Lovely setting, endearing characters
Set in beautiful Vermont, this story brims with love and heartache as teacher Charlotte works her way through a minefield of emotions. Fortunately, she meets a most wonderful young man who is earthly and wise and prepared to help her heal from old wounds. A lovely story with Jean Grant’s usual nicely formed characters who will stick in the reader’s mind throughout the day!
