Synopsis

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “[Debbie] Macomber brings her signature charm to this appealing tale of an aspiring chef. . . . This charmer will please Macomber fans and newcomers alike.”—Publishers Weekly

Debbie Macomber brings us to the Alaskan wilderness for a magical Christmas tale about finding love where it’s least expected.

Before beginning her dream job as sous chef in one of Seattle’s hottest new restaurants, Josie Avery takes a summer position cooking at a lakeside lodge in the remote Alaskan town of Ponder. Josie falls for the rustic charms of the local community—including Jack Corcoran, the crotchety keeper of Ponder’s famed sourdough starter, and, in particular, the quiet and intense Palmer Saxon, a famed master swordsmith.

Josie and Palmer become close during the long Alaskan summer days, but Josie knows that, come fall, she’ll be returning to reality and the career she’s worked so hard for. Palmer, on the other hand, would like nothing better than to make Josie his wife and to keep her in Ponder. But Josie can’t imagine abandoning her mother back in the Emerald City and sacrificing her career to stay in this isolated town—not even for a man she’s quickly coming to love.

Fate has other plans. Josie misses the last boat out of town before winter sets in, stranding her in Ponder and putting her dream job at risk. As the holidays approach, Josie and Palmer must grapple with the complications that arise when dreams confront reality, and the Christmas magic that can happen when they put their faith in love.

Debbie Macomber is at her best in this beautiful holiday story about the far journeys we travel to find a place to call home.

About the Author

How many people follow the dream they had as a child growing up? American Women's Fiction and Romance novelist, Debbie Macomber did just that. She realized that it was her dream to become a writer from the time she was in fourth grade. She did not act upon that dream (for fear of rejection) until she was 30 years old, and the mother of four children. She submitted many manuscripts, but all were rejected. She attended a romance writers conference, where one of her manuscripts, Heartsong, was selected to be critiqued by an editor from Harlequin Enterprises, Inc. Of course, that editor ripped her work to shreds with his criticism, and recommended she throw it away! Instead, she gathered the $10 fee and submitted the same manuscript to Harlequin's competitor, Silhouette Books. They published the manuscript, and Macomber's illustrious writing career began in earnest.

Debbie Macomber overcame her dyslexia to become one of the most prolific authors of romance novels. She sat in her kitchen, with four children, tapping out her work on an ordinary typewriter. At her peak writing, she was releasing two or three titles per year, with her first hardcover novel being released in 2001.

Most women today are very familiar with Macomber's current works, especially those that have been made into Hallmark Channel movies and series. The Christmas movies.......Debbie Macomber's Mrs. Miracle, Call Me Mrs. Miracle, and Trading Christmas.....have become iconic Christmas features. The Cedar Cove series was also a hit with not only Debbie Macomber fans, but Hallmark fans in general.

Macomber and her husband raised their four children, and now have grandchildren. They still live in Port Orchard, Washington, but now winter in Florida.
