Carlson's latest inspirational novel (Christmas in the Alps, 2020) is a sweet toast to second chances. Leroy and Brynna fell in love at camp nearly 30 years ago, only to have the relationship fade during their first year in college; unbeknownst to the other, both experienced major life events that derailed their expectations. Now Brynna, having sworn off men after her husband divorced her and married the other woman, makes an impromptu decision to join her coworker on a summer camping trip through Sonoma wine country. Leroy also married young, was widowed, and raised his three daughters alone while running his family's vineyard. Fond memories, deepening faith, and friends conspire to reunite the pair. Readers accustomed to inspirational romances featuring fresh twentysomethings will appreciate more mature protagonists who have lived life, loved, and lost, and who now have a chance to rekindle their first love. If, that is, they ever run into each other around Leroy's vineyard. Missed opportunities and misunderstandings abound in this heartwarming tale that's sure to appeal to Carlson's many fans.
