Carolyne Aarsen

Author Carolyne Aarsenabout this book: Leslie VandeKeere had a great job and a good life in Vancouver. She and her husband had plans to built their Dream Home. But after seeing a too many numbers on call display from a young woman who worked in her husband's garage and knowing that the business was on shaky ground, she gave in. She and her husband packed up their kids, their earthly belongings and made the move back to the family farm to help his mother work the struggling family farm. Temporary move Leslie had emphatically told her husband and he had agreed. Being the wife of a farmer was never in her plan and she's not sure of her place in this new territory. When Dan starts making hints that the move should be permanent, Leslie feels she has to make a stand. Trouble is, she feels like she is on her own. And as she deals with questions about her marriage, her family and her future she struggles to decide which place is truly the only best one.

• "Carolyne Aarsen's lonely protagonist, Leslie, may be someone you will love-or she may be someone you actually are. A confused wife, trying to see the sky, she is stranded in her husband's Eden. And the serpents would absolutely love to have a chat."
— Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of Cage of Stars and The Deep End of the Ocean

• "Okay, I'm hooked. Carolyne Aarsen writes for every woman who has said yes with her mouth but not her heart, who has led the comfort and safety of the known and stepped (mentally kicking and screaming) into the unknown."
— Neta Jackson, author of the Yada, Yada Prayer Group novels
