Odette Peterson has a clear understanding of where the Lord wants her, and that's in the African missionary field. When she meets veteran missionary, Xavier Sand, she embraces their budding relationship. He's everything she's wanted in a man: Christian, kind, and a man who's dedicated his life to ministry. But when he insists she put aside her evangelization efforts and join him in Japan, she finds she must let Xavier go.
Xavier cannot understand why Odette stubbornly clings to the idea that God wants her in Africa. Missionary, yes, but she can do missionary work anywhere. After all, he does. Despite all his efforts to convince her to change her conviction, she refuses and Xavier finds himself floundering for significance in his life.
Across three continents, and with others vying for their hearts, Odette and Xavier must learn to trust that God knows what's best for their futures...even if that means they will never be together.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Continents Apart. I was initially intrigued by the missionary element of this book. I've never been on a long-term mission, but have always been fascinated by the people who serve on the mission field and the stories of their experiences. So reading a novel about missionaries interested me. Continents Apart took me to the mission field and exposed me to cultures I know nothing about. I had never considered the difficulties such a life would present for a single person looking for love, romance and marriage. Mr. Sudboro did a great job keeping this reader engaged through clever dialogue, interesting characters, a fascinating setting and a plot that made me want to read on.
