In October 2016, Susan May Warren introduced readers to the Peak Rescue team in the first book in her Montana Rescue series, Wild Montana Skies. Since that time, readers have experienced romance, heartache, adventure, and high-stakes drama in four more novels. Wait for Me is the highly anticipated finale to this unforgettable series.
Pete Brooks has had a very difficult year. A series of mistakes on the job have cost lives, and Pete isn’t sure he wants to continue to work in search and rescue. In addition, he has waited an entire year for Jess Tagg to return to Montana, only to find out that she became engaged to her ex-fiancé.
EMT Jess Tagg has returned to Montana and is finally ready to give her heart to Pete, but it seems he’s no longer interested. When a terrible fight occurs, Jess makes an impulsive decision, which results in a crash on the side of a highway. And just when Jess thinks things couldn’t get any worse, she, Esme Shaw, and Ned Marshall are taken captive.
Now Pete must lead a rescue that will battle time, the elements, and the actions of a vengeful man. Pete will have to use everything he has learned to find Jess, Esme, and Ned—and pray that his past mistakes don’t cost him the life of the woman he can’t stop loving.
Describe a moment that went terribly wrong
My mother-in-law sold everything I owned without my permission.
Yes, you read that correctly. We were returning from the mission field and she was trying to make room for us in her home by getting rid of the things we stored there. Everything went for a total of $170. When she said, “I can’t wait to show you what I did,” I can admit I thought maybe she’d made us a cake. What remained of over 100 boxes was a crate of John Denver records (What? No one wanted those?), my wedding china (phew!), and my betrayed heart.
God supposed to protect me. Right?
What happened next??
I honestly struggled with forgiving my mother-in-law. But she was the grandmother to my children, my husband’s mother, and she honestly didn’t mean to hurt me. She thought she was trying to help. So, I opened my heart, begged God for compassion and began the journey to forgiveness. And after the hurt lessened, I wrote an article about forgiveness and send it to a magazine.
It was my first published article and it jumpstarted my writing career.
God replaced the loss of possessions with something that has eternal value—sharing His truth through stories. I treasure every reader letter I receive; readers who tell me that my stories have touched their lives.
Terribly wrong can become terribly right when we open our hearts and let God in to heal, to forgive. To change us. He just might end up changing others, too.
