Roy and his family decide to venture to Alaska for the vacation of a lifetime.  But then, their vacation turns into a permanent relocation, after an invitation is received to work in an Alaskan roadhouse. So, Roy and Lou move their family from Michigan to Alaska. Soon their familiar life in Michigan is just a memory.  Lou finds the new life for her family, in rural Alaska to be both a challenge and an adventure.  She learns to be courageous in all aspects of her life knowing that is what it will take to survive in Alaska. 

I loved the story about that bear.  I absolutely loved this story.  I was pulled into the story from the very first page. I felt immediately whisked away to Alaska.This wonderful story was well written, and had me reminiscing of the four years that I lived in Alaska.  I found Lou’s story to be both heart-warming and inspirational. I look forward to reading the next book in this series.  I loved this story, it is truly a must read.

Thank you Maryann Landers for such a wonderful story.  I really enjoyed this book and the detailed description of Alaska was perfect.  I was completely engrossed in this story from beginning to end.  I highly recommend it.

I met Roy at fourteen and with the toss of a coin that summer night, I dialed in the love of my life. We wasted years until we found the answer to our hearts' longing in Jesus.

On the evening of our baptism, Roy suggested our family of four venture on his dream vacation to Alaska. Although reluctant to traverse the country, I was determined to enjoy the much needed family time.

When an invitation to work at an iconic Alaskan roadhouse forced the trajectory of our summer in an unexpected direction, my tight grip on our familiar Michigan life started to slip.

Will this quest for an Alaskan adventure be worth the sacrifice for us all?

Will my new faith in Christ withstand the storms of change and awaken the transformation I didn’t know I needed or will I crumble under the leaden weight of my husband’s dreams?

The Alaskan Women of Caliber Series unfolds a fictional tapestry based on true, pivotal stories of rebirth, escape, love, sacrifice, and discovery. The visceral backdrop of the arctic impacts women and draws them to its Creator. Follow these women and the heartbeat of their high caliber life events.
