HE NEEDED THE ISLAND TO HIMSELF. SO DID SHE.
Three weeks alone at a friend’s summer cottage on a Finnish lake to fast and pray. That was Adam Carter’s plan. But sometimes plans go awry.
On an impromptu trip to her family’s secluded summer cottage, the last thing Eveliina Mikkola expected to find was a missionary from the other side of the world—in her sauna.
Determined to stay, Eveliina will do whatever it takes—from shortcrust pastry to shorts—to send the man of God packing. This island’s too small for them both.
Adam Carter, however, is not about to leave. Will he be able to resist her temptations?
Can she withstand his prayers?
Marion Ueckermann has penned a delightful novella that transports the reader to Finland and its fascinating culture. When Adam and Eveliina meet, sparks fly, and the initial tension between the two quickly becomes something much more. As they struggle with their feelings, God intervenes in a way neither of them expects.
The author skillfully weaves a strong message of forgiveness and renewal into this story, a lesson that lingers in the heart. Helsinki Sunrise earns four and a half stars.
