He traveled 3,800 miles to be alone

…but is it what he really wants?

Relocating to Alaska after a family tragedy seemed an ideal way for author R.D. “Mac” Macleod to grieve in peace. But solitude feels overrated when Mac’s around B&B owner Ursula Anderson and her orphaned goddaughter, Rory, who’s already bonding with his dog. Worse, he’s imagining a future with Ursula and Rory. Is it time to finally forgive himself?


Heart-wrenchingly emotional! With the next book in her Northern Lights series, Beth Carpenter takes us into the heart of a man who has lost his motivation in the world. He thinks all he needs is to hole up and be alone, but when he’s challenged again and again by a pushy neighbor and her adorable goddaughter, he actually sees the world brightening up a bit. There are a couple of story lines melding together to complete this story, and both are emotional and sad, but there’s also an amazing connection between this man, woman and child that makes you hope against hope for the healing they all need. A really great read!

R.D. *Mac* Macleod needs to be alone. An accomplished author for years, Mac no longer has an inspiration to open his laptop, much less try to meet the next deadline looming. He’s lost the one person who was most dear to him … and he’s consumed with a soul crushing guilt that he can’t get past. He leaves his home and heads to Alaska where he can live on his own without people bothering him … only it doesn’t take long for a pesky neighbor to come knocking!

B & B owner Ursula Anderson knows loss, and when she gets to know Mac and sees how overcome he is with his despair, she’s not sure she can help him. But being around Ursula and the adorable little girl she’s raising brightens Mac’s demeanor. Can the life she can offer truly be enough for this man or will he continue to let his perceived failure eat away at him?
