Where the Blue Sky Begins by Katie Powner is Christian fiction novel set in Montana. This is a story about two unlikely friends, priorities, perceptions, and forgiveness.
While one character is facing a terminal illness, the other struggles to adjust to his new job in the middle of nowhere. Discouragement and darkness could permeate this story, but the author does a masterful job of infusing it with hope and goodness.
The two characters came to life for me so that I cared about them, a challenging thing since one was facing the end of her life. But I couldn’t put the book down. I rooted for both characters to find the peace they needed before it was too late. And while a strong Christian message abounds in this book, neither was it preachy. The characters struggled with the concepts and the author leaves it at that.
If you’re wondering why God has you where you’re at in your life, if you’re struggling with contentment or forgiveness, then I recommend picking up a copy of this book. It was so good!
