Cover blurb #1
With the letter in the mail, she travels to Finland where she hears her name blasted over a loudspeaker at a crusade tent.
Pirkko, in her final year of high school, answers the request to teach English to a seminary student in Finland, and they embark on a pen pal relationship.
Nothing else matters to Antti besides following God’s guidance, but he’s intrigued by the girl behind the letters. Who is she? Why does she matter? His focus on God’s call on his life keeps him unattached. He’s even sworn off dating until his graduation year.

Instant attraction consumes her, and she makes a shocking declaration that could jeopardise her chance at love.
Can they make it work despite the obstacles and the ocean between them? Will they have a future together? If you like God stories or sweet romance, this unique memoir is for you.
