Lizzie has made her heart cold to the things that hurt her, such as the passing of her mother and being ostracized by her mother's people. When her father leaves her in the wilderness, she must survive on her own with only the company of her sled dogs.
But when Clay and his sister, Vivian, come to the area as missionaries to the natives of Alaska, she realizes just how lonely she's been for so many years without anyone to talk to.
Between Clay's struggles to be the best missionary he can so as not to let his father down, and Lizzie's quest to gain the trust of her native grandparents, this story had some sad parts. I was so happy when everything started falling into place when God was made the center of their lives.
This author is one of my favorites, and I have read almost every one of her books. Keep them coming!
