Making her home in Montana, this Kansas native enjoys spending time with family--especially her three grandchildren--Rainy, Fox and Max. She's active in her church as the Director of Women's Ministries, coordinates a yearly writer's retreat for published authors, and travels, as time permits, to research her books


Britta Lindquist left Sitka six years ago in an attempt to distance herself from the love of her life, Yuri Belikov. Upon her return, she finds Yuri absent and his wife about to deliver a child. When tragic circumstances ensue, Britta suddenly finds herself caring for Yuri's children--and her life intertwining with the man she's tried so hard to forget.

But Britta's other great love is for the violin, and her talent is recognized by Brenton Maltese, a conductor from England. He proposes she accept the coveted first chair position in his orchestra...and also his hand in marriage. At a crossroads, Britta must determine what her heart truly longs for--and if she's willing to fight for it.

At a Crossroads, Britta must determine what her heart truly longs for─and if she's willing to fight for it.

My review:

Britta is a violin player. She is also a caring 'mother'. But let's rewind a little bit. She leaves Sitka six years before this to be away from the love of her life, Yuri. Which is difficult in itself, but then returning back to her home she finds her love absent and his wife about to deliver a child! UM HELLO? That's one disaster, but to top it off another comes quickly which puts Britta in the place of caring for the child. So now not only is she back in the same town as this man, BUT she's taking care of his kids. Amazing woman right? Right. Anyway. Her talent is discovered by an infamous conductor from England. She could have her dream of playing the violin for thousands to hear. But what does she choose? To take care of Yuri's children, or play her violin?

Guess you'll have to find out....!

This is a great end to this series and one that is definitely encouraging of seeking the Lord for your future!
