A troubled heart led Joshua Chesterton, a mid-fifties writer, to leave Maine, family, friends and his history to embrace the Northwest wilderness. He and his furry, four-footed friend, Shannon, live comfortably in his ultimate "green" cabin overlooking a peaceful view of towering mountains and an awesome lake. Life changes drastically when serendipity and early snowstorms bring Jami, an auburn-haired, feminine, mid-fifties counterpart, literally swiming into his arms. With no memory of her prior life, and no communication to the outside world for an entire winter, humor, faith, and tears draw Jami and Josh together to share unique experiences and develop a warm relationship. While Joshua's heart is finally healing, Jami has no recollection of her previous life and fights falling in love.

About the Author

Widowed at 45, Sharlene Minshall dusted herself off and left Michigan driving full tilt into a twenty-year solo, full-time RVing saga taking her from Key West, Florida, to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska; from Baja and old Mexico to Newfoundland/Labrador; and most drivable points in between. Sharlene published six non-fiction, RV-related how-to and adventure books. Being a mother and grandmother and losing a mate, plus all the years of solo RV/travel adventures, gave her just the right viewpoint to launch into the story of Jami and Josh. The over-fifty characters in her novel experience humor, faith, tears, and obstacles after bumping into love unexpectedly the second time around. Ms. Minshall continues writing weekly blogs and monthly columns for RV Life out of Lynnwood, WA.
