Thank you so much, Lyn, for having me as a guest on your blog. I love strong women!

My heroine, Posy Sutton, a ballerina

My new book is called ALASKAN HOMECOMING, and it’s the latest in my series of Alaskan romances for Love Inspired Books. I’m very excited about this book because my heroine, Posy Sutton, is a ballerina. I’ve always loved ballet. I’m a dancer myself, so this is a book that I’ve wanted to write for a very long time.

 Back in her hometown of Aurora, Alaska

The beginning of the story finds Posy back in her hometown of Aurora, Alaska, after a six-year absence. She’s been away, dancing for a prestigious ballet company in San Francisco. On the opening night of Cinderella, when she’s dancing her biggest role, she breaks a bone in her foot and goes tumbling to the ground. She has six weeks to heal before auditions will be held for a spot as principal dancer at the company. Being chosen as a principal would be the fulfillment of Posy’s lifelong dream! Dance has always been everything to her.

What better place to heal than home?

She returns to Alaska, where her mother has arranged for her to teach after-school ballet lessons at the church youth group. What her mother neglected to mention was that the youth pastor is Posy’s old high school boyfriend, Liam Blake.

The coming weeks will test Posy’s strength

like it’s never been tested before. If her body doesn’t heal in time, she may not get promoted to principal. But if she pushes herself too hard, she may never dance again. Years ago, when Posy was fresh out of high school, she suffered an identical injury. Back then, she relied on prescription drugs to mask the pain. Now all eyes are on her, watching, waiting, to see if she’ll repeat her past mistakes.

Coming to terms with her past

But Posy’s story is as much about her bravery in coming to terms with her past and healing her heart as it is about healing her body. Her greatest show of strength is allowing herself to be vulnerable to Liam once again after pushing him away all those years ago. Because sometimes the hardest thing of all is coming home.”–Teri

    Thank you for sharing this great post and giveaway. I would love to read Posy’s story! The occasional illness has put me out of commission, but thankfully those bouts don’t last long! During these times I am reminded of the blessing of good health, which we often take for granted.

    Yes, illness has put me out of commission for several years. I am happy things are a lot better now and have things under control.

    i am currently out of commission (mostly) due to health issues. Through it, I am learning what is important & what isn’t, learning to be still and trust God, and learning the art of humility in accepting help.

    I LOVE ALL the heroines in Ms. Wilson’s Alaska books but this one really has piqued my interest – her love of ballet really jumps out at me, and I honestly didn’t expect the “addiction” part of the storyline. My thought in reading this particular book is how much her story telling truly makes me feel like a part of the Aurora community. I also love how the characters’ lives are intertwined from the first book. It is like going home to see ‘old friends’ and catching up with their lives from one story to the other. As far as your question on being put ‘out of commission’ – my own personal lesson is that you do need faith and courage to heal as well as allowing your own personal village into your life and be willing to let others help when necessary. Knowing Ms. Wilson’s heroines, I imagine Posy has all this and more, I will just have to finish reading her inspired book to see. And take Posy’s life lessons to heart like I have with Anya, Clementine, and Zoey. There is always something to learn from these amazing Alaskan women. Thank you.
