Overview

KAATJE JANSSEN—Desperate to know if her missing husband still lives, Kaatje hires the rugged, yet tenderhearted James Walker to guide her through the perils of the Alaskan wilderness. What she finally discovers, however, is far from what she expected—and could well place her in the greatest danger of her life.

ELSA RAMSTAD—As captain of the Majestic and mother of Kristian and Eve, Elsa has sought to ease the ache of her lonely heart. Forever changed by loss, she accepts her fate of solitude. But when an old friend rekindles the spark of romance within her, will she allow the flames of love to burn again?

TORA ANDERS—Her foolish youth behind her, Tora looks forward to her wedding and a fresh start in life as the wife of her beloved, Trent Storm. But first she must confront, face-to-face, the terrible demons of her past—and her struggle to forgive the man who radically altered her future.

KARL MARTENSEN—Though he is widely admired, Captain Karl Martensen feels no depth of emotion for any of the women with whom his life becomes uncomfortably entangled. He has only tender memories of the love he once lost—a love that, by the grace of God, he just may find again.

From the fierce Alaskan wilderness to the gaiety of San Francisco society; the familiar peaks of Bergen, Norway, to the dark, churning waters of Cape Horn; witness the glorious conclusion of the Northern Lights family saga as four long-time friends journey out of the shadow of their darkest days into the bright future awaiting them in the land of the Midnight Sun.

Midnight Sun is the third book in the Northern Lights Series by Lisa Tawn Bergren. It is the conclusion of the stories of our four friends Elsa, Karl, Tora, and Kaatje. Each of these characters is featured as they face new struggles and strive to find the endings--hopefully happy ones--that God has in store for them. It has been a few years since Peder was delirious with malaria and fell overboard during a storm. Still Elsa grieves the loss of her first love and struggles with the guilt she sometimes feels as his memories begin to fade. Still she must trust God that He has great plans for her. So she takes to the sea as a Captain herself! With Kristian and Eve, she begins travelling around the world and continuing to manage all the many Ramstad businesses. Will the men accept a woman as Captain? Will she ever love again? Karl continues to work with Bradford Bresley and Trent Storm to expand his business investments. He has done very well for himself on land, but God has lead him back to sea. Now he is the Captain of his own steamer and it seems all his dreams have finally come true--save one. Karl still hasn't found the woman of his dreams. No matter how many lovely women he meets in his travels he still hasn't found a connection. Will he ever find a love all his own? Kaatje has traveled to Alaska with Tora, Trent, and her girls to go in search of her husband who abandoned them seven years prior. She doesn't know exactly why God has put her on this path, but she knows she has to find out if Soren is dead or alive. With Trent's help she hires two guides to take her into the Alaskan wilds in search of her wayward man. Will she survive? What will she find? Is there more to her guide, James, than what there seems? Tora has finally agreed to marry Trent. After years of following God's plan and waiting no one could be more excited than the two of them. Still Tora's past haunts her. When Decker, the man who abducted and raped her, suddenly appears in Juneau Tora must learn to trust God as never before. Will Trent love her less because of her past? Will more of her past come back to haunt her? There are so many questions and emotions that go through you as you read Midnight Sun? Although it is a wonderful book, compared to the other two it is a little flat. There are a couple of repetitive parts which could have been condensed in favor of more storyline for James and Kaatje or for after a certain couples wedding, but other than that I thought it was absolutely wonderful! So hard to put down, and it leaves you wanting still another book that will never come. I highly recommend Midnight Sun to avid fans of the Northern Lights Series and of Lisa T. Bergren. You won't be disappointed!

Kaatje Janseen only wanted to know if her husband, Soren, was dead or alive. He had left her seven years ago on a Dakota farm with a baby girl. Then she was given the baby girl of his mistress, Tora, to raise also. But Kaatje was a different woman now. Stronger. She had worked so hard to provide for her family. She and Tora had become friends and watched their girls together. Kaatje had her own businesses now and was financially secure. All she wanted now was to get on with her life. To do this, she hired a guide, James Walker, and his Indian friend, Kadachan, to take her into the Interior to find her personal closure. Either she would find Soren or his grave!

James Walker had lost his wife years ago in a fire and had run away to Alaska to escape the memories and women. During his track with Kaatje though, he lost his heart to her. He was relieved when she decided Soren was really dead and she would have a preacher announce it when they returned to Juneau (home to her now). However, once in Juneau, just as Kaatje and James were about to tell each other how they felt, Soren walked in!

Soren had followed the group on the trail. When he learned his wife had money, he expected to simply waltz back into her life. No matter how much adultery he had committed, she was too God fearing to have done the same. He played upon her emotions (even said he had finally found the Lord) to win her back. But Kaatje was not the simple woman he once knew and she had earned the respect and protection of Tora, James, and others.

*** This is but a taste of the wonder the readers will experience within these pages. I did not even mention the tale around Tora and her fiancé, or of Captain Karl Martensen (male) and Captain Elsa Ramstad (female). If I did so, this review would be pages long!

Simply put, Lisa Tawn Bergren has a new fan in me! I plan to look up the first two books in this series. I understand, by a note from the author in the back of the book, that there will not be a book 4. This is it, Readers! And, oh how I wish there were to be another in this series! The author wrote so well that I could actually feel the emotions of each character! Brava! ***
