When Judith Caldwell leaves urban Washington, DC to accept a teaching position in Michigan's remote Upper Peninsula, is she hoping to recapture an idealized memory of summer vacations spent in that beautiful wilderness, or is she defying her fiancé, Kent, who has put their wedding on hold? The moment Judith sets foot in Michigan, a hotel fire destroys her possessions. Instead of teaching high school, she is assigned to an elementary school where she must learn to relate to young children. The Andersons, with whom she will be living, are no longer the happy family she remembers, and most disturbing of all... her old playmate Paul has matured into a ruggedly handsome and strangely secretive ladies' man who seems determined to upset Judith's equilibrium. The attraction between Judith and Paul is immediate and powerful, but each comes to the relationship with hidden scars and insecurities. Both have lost fathers, and Paul's hero, his older brother, has died in a freak mine accident. Commitment seems impossible because Judith is engaged to another, while Paul is hiding an indiscretion from his past so dark that no one speaks of it. As the year unfolds, the couple confronts many challenges, including a near brush with death as history tries to repeat itself. In spite of the obstacles, Judith and Paul's forbidden passion heats up the northern nights and leads to a surprising conclusion.

This is a book with something for everyone - from those fond of fine literature to those just looking for a darn good love yarn.

Readers will fall in love with the characters from the get-go, characters real and gutsy, but with flaws that make you want to give them all big hugs and kisses - and sometimes a lecture or two. They are colorful. You know immediately who they are, what they want, what they long and yearn for. You love most of them intensely and despise others just as intensely (or intensely wish some of them would just grow up, already!).

There's action from the very opening paragraphs, when the hero Paul rescues the main character Judy from a hotel fire - in her scanty nightclothes. Paul is too preoccupied with getting this stranger to safety to worry much about proper etiquette regarding her dignity - including whether or not her nightgown remains respectably below her thighs as he drags her from her smoked-filled room. Judy however is mortified.... The action and angst continues throughout the book - a book that will leave you guessing until the very last few pages what finally happens to these characters you grow to love, and what they're really all about.

The book has plenty of passion, too, as the heroine works like Hades to try to deny her feelings for her husky, handsome, rugged rescuer (she's engaged to the dashing Dr. Kent Sullivan, afterall, the prominent archaeologist who draws women like a magnet - what fool would want to give up a catch like him?).

So - passion, action, plot, fab characters - what more could a reader want? Well, Christie Cole gives you more. She gives you great writing. The book is rife with phrases that startle your senses: "autumn burning itself out" (84) and a lake that "floats in the valley like a deep blue eye...." (104). She gives you descriptions of the Northern Michigan "Copper Country" that are new, fresh and vital: "Outside my window, the night is cold, and the pines are witch hats piercing the moon" (53). Or this about Judy's elementary students on her first day of teaching: "They're nothing like the streetwise kids back home.... The girls wear dresses, knee sox and loafers, while the boys wear pressed shirts and sweaters. I've been time-warped into a Happy Days rerun...." P. 59.

Cole gives insights into human nature that will prompt readers to pause and consider: "Paul seems to anticipate my every need, and this disturbs me more than his merciless teasing. We are simpatico, and that fact is too dangerous to contemplate" (113).

In the end, however, I think it's the humor permeating the book that makes it so memorable: "'Hey, don't kill the messenger....' Whatever he means is of no interest. If I can't kill someone, I want to die." (22) and "If I can't prod my friend into standing up and growing a backbone, at least I can take her shopping" (55).

If, that is, I HAD to choose one thing out of the myriad of prominent plusses this book offers. Actually, all these plusses meld flawlessly into one seamless whole, making this book one that I predict is destined to go through many reprintings as time goes by.

Christie Cole's masterful debut novel bridges the gap between the romance genre and mainstream fiction. While the passion shared by Judith and Paul heats up the northland, the book's style, theme, intricate plot and well-developed cast of secondary characters lend depth to the story.

Northern Lights describes how two star-crossed lovers turn their fate around, but it also shows how their passion steers a troubled family and a community onto the right track. Judith and Paul's love becomes the catalyst for forgiveness and reconciliation, taking the theme far beyond mere romance.

The sexual tension between Judith and Paul is strung like a tightrope, while the elements of mystery and danger make Northern Lights a page-turner in the tradition of suspense novels.

The setting is a major character. Upper Michigan's abandoned copper mines, unforgiving winters, rugged wilderness, and mighty Lake Superior mirror Judith and Paul's unrequited love just as the coming of spring becomes a metaphor for their reconciliation and love's consummation.

I wanted to love this book, especially with a setting in Northern Michigan where I have visited there many times. However, I was very disappointed because it was slow moving, the characters weren't very interesting. I almost didn't finish it. I usually love books in this category and decided to try this author for the first time. I'm sorry to say I don't recommend it.
