How long do you hold on to hope?
Danica Greene has always hated flying, so it was almost laughable that the boy of her dreams was a pilot. She married him anyway and together, she and Etsell settled into a life where love really did seem to conquer all. But when the opportunity to spend three weeks piloting in Alaska presents itself, Etsell accepts and their idyllic world is turned upside down. Ell is on his last flight before heading home when his plane mysteriously vanishes, leaving Danica in a free fall.
Etsell is gone, but what exactly does gone mean? Is she a widow? An abandoned wife? Or will Etsell find his way home to her? A story of love and loss, and ultimately starting over, Far From Here explores the dynamics of intimacy and the potentially devastating consequences of the little white lies we tell the ones we love.
Nicole Baart was born and raised in a small town in Iowa. She and her husband have three young sons. After the adoption of their infant son, Nicole discovered a deep passion for global issues and co-founded a non-profit organization, One Body One Hope, which works alongside a church and orphanage in Monrovia, Liberia. She is also the author of After the Leaves Fall, Summer Snow, The Moment Between, and Beneath the Night Tree.
