Indivisible Line by Guest Lorenz Font

It's Too Yummy Tuesday!

On Tuesdays, I share recipes inspired by books or that are just plain good! Today I welcome special guest author Lorenz Font, who is joining us during her Indivisible Line blog tour. What do you have for us today?

Thanks, J. Rose, for giving me a chance to share this recipe with your readers. This is not my own recipe, and I’m crediting the chef who had it posted online. As caribou stew is a staple in Alaska, I thought it’s a great idea to focus on the dish popular among the tribe featured in my story. This particular creation was mentioned in Chapter 9.

Since my fulltime job and writing takes up most of my time, cooking has been relegated to my hubby. I will suggest that we try this delicacy one of these days.

Pre-med student Sarah Jones is back in Beaver, Alaska, for summer vacation.  A loyal member of the Gwich’in tribe, she accepts the rules set by her father, the leader of their small town. Raised in a strict household, she learned early on to do what is expected of her and has agreed to an arranged marriage. Despite her reluctance to marry without love, Sarah is unwilling to defy her father’s wishes. She hopes to help usher in an era of independence and stability for the town, but for now, her focus is finishing med school so she can become Beaver’s resident doctor.

Business owner Greg Andrews wants to escape his philandering wife and his life in general. Leaving New York City to join a hunting expedition in Alaska, Greg’s plans are turned upside down when he is shot on Gwich’in land and ends up on Sarah’s operating table. In the absence of a qualified doctor, Sarah must operate to save his life. She refuses to wait for the consent of their tribal leader, and her father banishes her from the tribal land in punishment.

Grateful for his life, Greg concocts a scheme to help. Plagued by the side effects of her unconventional operation, he convinces Sarah to become his live-in nurse. Without the means to support herself, Sarah agrees to the questionable arrangement, but she soon finds herself in even more trouble. Her new problem is that she is falling in love with this infuriating man, and the choices she now must make are must more difficult than the simple act of saving a man’s life.

Together, Sarah and Greg must both decide whether they can overcome the vast differences between them, or if the indivisible line that separates their worlds will ultimately pull them apart.
