Everything's Coming Up Josey

Signing on to be a missionary in Russia for a year, Josey is becoming accustomed to her new surroundings. The frosty Russian weather is no big deal for a Minnesota girl, but getting her love life to thaw is the real challenge. From the Publisher:I need you, the tall, good-looking missionary had said. but he'd been speaking to Josey's entire church at the time. Had she taken it too literally? Because she was no longer in Gull Lake, Minnesota. She was a missionary. In Russia. For a year. True, Josey had wanted to skip town when her sister married her ex, and her secret crush/best friend got engaged. But Russia? Yet after a few weeks the idea grew on her. She could speak enough words to buy fruit at the Moscow market, and the missionary role was feeling. right (although her bagel-thieving roommate tested her daily). Even the frosty Russian weather was no big deal for this Minnesota girl - it was getting her love life to thaw that was the real challenge! About the Author: Susan May Warren started writing in the first grade - winning her first book contest with an entry entitled My First Day of School. Since then writing has been her way to explore and share the experiences God has given her as a Minnesota girl and as a missionary to Russia. She loves to be outdoors - hiking, fishing, canoeing, skiing, snowmobiling. even doing yard work! Married to a really cute guy with devastating blue eyes, she's also a mother of four children (she homeschools two of them), is in charge of her church's Children's Church program and is active in local and online writers' groups. She loves hands-on research; she once interviewed firefighters while her garage burned down. She can most often be found buried in a book, hiding out at her local library, or taking long walks, talking to herself as she works out a story. (Or maybe she's just looking for a moment of quiet!)
