Lindsay Stott is a uniquely talented young woman who has it all - a wonderful best friend, a handsome fiancé, and the perfect job. But when things start to unravel by her own doing, she flees the country in pursuit of another career opportunity.
The new job takes her to the Kola Peninsula in Russia. Lindsay knows that it’s going to be cold, and it’s going to be lonely, but more importantly it’s going to be far, far away from her former life. And then her journey takes a sudden and frightening twist. The small plane she’s travelling on plunges into the icy unknown, taking Lindsay with it.
When she is unexpectedly rescued by a group of locals, Lindsay becomes embroiled in local legends and increasingly torn by her desire to return home and her desire to stay. She soon finds herself caught between not just two worlds, but between two men - one who sees her as a prophecy come to life, and another who is carrying a dark secret.
Can Lindsay find a place in this remote, frozen world? Will she be forced to make a choice between destiny and duty?
Lindsay Stott leaves her life in Canada to join a prominent university translation project located in a remote area of Russia. She’s sure that six months immersing herself in the Russian language and culture is just what she needs to heal her broken heart.
But when an unexpected tragedy strikes, she’s now permanently injured and living amongst an unknown people. Learning to navigate the unknown is daunting enough without also finding herself torn between two brothers.
“Frostbite,” I whispered, and at last Lanka let me look away from my hand. I didn't want to mourn the loss of a measly two and half digits. But I was already forming a list of things I wouldn't be able to do with that hand. I would probably never be able to open a jar of pickles on my own. I would no longer be able to lift my pinky at a fancy tea party. I couldn't flip someone the bird. It was a silly list.
Gavril is darkly intense and more than a little bit scary while Taras is flirtatious and forward. When she uncovers the secret that that the small village is keeping, she becomes even more determined to find a way back to the life that she left behind. Will she be able to turn her back on the man that has invaded her heart or will she choose to lay down her own life to save him?
“Why are you keeping me here?”
Long Way From Home was such a surprising read! Melinda has artfully entwined mystery, adventure and romance that instantly captivated me. As a heroine, Lindsay is both smart and strong and keeps it together when someone weaker would have certainly folded. Her journey is one of self-discovery and finding love in a very unexpected place.
I devoured the entire book in a single evening and can say that without a doubt - Melinda Di Lorenzo is an author that you need to know…
