Everything's Coming Up Josey
By Susan May Warren
"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!
