NO DISTANCE TOO FAR
This second Home to Blessing novel is an enjoyable read and relays the inner life of a missionary who struggles with her call to service. The reader will engage easily with the main characters, though the plot does move slowly in places.
Astrid Bjorklund wants to use her medical training to serve as a missionary in Africa. Smarting from a misunderstanding with Joshua Landsverk, the man she thought she loved, she heads east to a missionary training school. When she's called home unexpectedly, Astrid learns of a deadly measles outbreak on the nearby Indian reservation and wonders if her mission field is closer to home than she imagined. But if she follows God's call, will love pass her by? (BETHANY HOUSE, Apr., 352 pp., $14.99)
