Overview

What if God answered your prayer and you pretended not to hear him?

Though Stars and Strips reporter Allie O’Connor has lived in Japan for two years, she still feels like a foreigner. As her best friend prepares to move away, Allie prays for a new friend.

Soon after this prayer she runs into an old classmate from high school, Eric Larsen, at church. In school they had been polar opposites. He had been captain of the debate team; she had edited the literary magazine. He drank espresso, while she preferred green tea. She is definitely not the friend she was looking for. And yet…here he is.

Will Allie accept this unexpected answer to her prayer? And will she be brave enough to really see the person she once chose to overlook?
In this journey of self-discovery in an exotic and mysterious land, Allie has a rare opportunity to examine her prejudices—to rediscover her voice, rethink her past, and reshape her future.

Meet the Author

Siri Mitchell graduated from the University of Washington with a business degree and worked in various levels of government. As a military spouse, she lived all over the world, including Paris and Tokyo. Siri enjoys observing and learning from different cultures. She is fluent in French and loves sushi.

But she is also a member of a strange breed of people called novelists. When they’re listening to a speaker and taking notes, chances are, they’ve just had a great idea for a plot or a dialogue. If they nod in response to a really profound statement, they’re probably thinking, “Yes. Right. That’s exactly what my character needs to hear.” When they edit their manuscripts, they laugh at the funny parts. And cry at the sad parts. Sometimes they even talk to their characters.

Siri wrote 4 books and accumulated 153 rejections before signing with a publisher. In the process, she saw the bottoms of more pints of ice cream than she cares to admit. At various times she has vowed never to write another word again. Ever. She has gone on writing strikes and even stooped to threatening her manuscripts with the shredder.

Her tenth novel, The Messenger, follows prior Bethany House releases: A Constant Heart (October 2008), Love's Pursuit (June 2009), She Walks in Beauty (April 2010), and A Heart Most Worthy (March 2011). She Walks in Beauty won the inaugural INSPY Award for Historical Fiction in December 2010. Three of Siri's novels, Chateau of Echoes and The Cubicle Next Door, and She Walks in Beauty were Christy Award finalists. Love's Pursuit and Kissing Adrien were finalists for the ACFW Carol Award.

    Very Enjoyable

    I love Siri Mitchell's books! This is one of her earlier works where the main character tends to be a bit quirky with some real life struggles. It is evident that Ms. Mitchell's style has changed over the years to a more intense storyline, yet the heroines retain the strength of character that I admire.

    Don't judge a book by it's cover!

    This one is great, loved it so much it's now one of my favorites. Feels like a trip to modern day Japan and alot of it's famous places. I have an excitement for the Cherry Blossom Festival now.

    What a refreshing romance!

    I have fallen in love with Siri Mitchell's writings. This is a great book. Friendship can be a wonderful start to a romance and this was a fun and entertaining read. Mrs Mitchell does a good job describing Japan and Tokyo (streets, sights, trains). This is a nice romance, it does have Christian aspects and is very clean. I want my kids to be able to read over my shoulder and my mind to be free from the images that more graphic books portray. Mrs Mitchell doesn't avoid the physical aspects of falling in love though. The characters are attracted to each other and she deals with that with wonderful discretion. But I think that is a very real part of the book reading experience. I highly recommend this book and her others as well. I like that these appear to be self published (or are at least cheaper) than her later ones. I find them just as enjoyable to read!
