RACE AGAINST TIME
Mother and daughter return with another look into the world of competitive dog racing, complete with mystery and romance. The authors hope to help preserve the Alaskan culture, as well as to remind the reader that God’s love for us is endless … even when it feels like He does not hear our prayers.
Single mother Anesia Naltsiine and her daughter, Zoya, are proud of their racing heritage and own a large number of prized racing dogs. Zoya is recovering from a gunshot wound after witnessing a murder. Wanting help with the dogs, as well as protection for Zoya, Anesia hires Sean Connolly, who is happy to be out from under his father’s tutelage. Zoya has changed since the accident and her best friend feels she is losing her. Zoya continues to receive threatening notes and she fears for her mother’s life. What secrets does someone believe Anesia and Zoya are harboring? (B&H, Dec., 352 pp., $14.99)
