Lee Carverabout this book: A contemporary inspirational novel with a thread of romance, this story follows an American RN into the jungles of Brazil. She volunteers for a two week mission that stands her life on edge. Attempting to escape a broken heart situation, she re-examines her life choices as she confronts hijackers, malaria, and her attraction to a certain blue-eyed missionary pilot.
The author and her husband served as volunteer missionaries in the Brazilian Amazon for six years. Knowledge of the land, the people, and true missionary life led to an understanding of what missionaries are really like: dedicated, faulted, conflicted, but faithful. When the RN and pilot aren't in a desperate battle for their lives, deeper subjects are explored, like the intersection of God's will and their personal desires--even selfish ones. How does one recognize a call from God to serve His people? And how does romantic passion fit into the lives of missionaries?
Quote from Lena Nelson Dooley, multiple award-winning author: "Lee Carver's novels are flavored by the places she's actually been, giving us a character-driven story we can't put down."
