Talk about finding one’s roots! A trip to Finland leads to discovery for longtime best friends Penny and Sharon. You see Penny has only known her mother up until her death in her mid fortiies. She promises herself and Sharon that a long distance trip will take place in the distant future, maybe after the kids are in college> Nah!
Hesitant Sharon agrees to fly over to Finland with Penny after much convincing and then along the way they meet various people. Penny tends to be more sociable, more open. And Sharon is just more reserved. And that’s where the discovery takes place.
Both Sharon and Penny change once they reach Finland and finally meet Markeeta, Penny’s aunt and possibly only living relative. Markeeta helps them emerge from themselves. Sharon decides to take chances, to try new things, and Penny is determined to enjoy life and not give up hope. Seems the “wild” Penny ompliments the “quiet” Sharon. Who says you have to be alike to be friends?
I received a free copy from Waterbrook Press in exchange for reviewing it.
