Copper Country By Kristin Neva

A Copper Island Story of Family and Forgiveness

“Where do people get this idea that dying people are more noble?”

TEN YEARS AFTER ABANDONING his family, Aimee Mallon’s father returns with throat cancer. Aimee wants to forgive him, but he’s as narcissistic and unrepentant as ever. She’s comforted by Russ Saarinen, who’s everything her father wasn’t—present and gentle. But a long-term relationship with him is unrealistic unless he’s willing to let go of his bitterness toward corporations, give up his off-the-grid cabin, and find a real job.

Copper Country is set on what the old Finns called Kuparisaari. Copper Island juts into Lake Superior from the north end of the Keweenaw Peninsula, where remnants of an industry long passed dot the landscape. Yoopers, the people of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, are rugged individuals, geographically and culturally distinct from much of America.

Kristin Neva grew up in an old farmhouse on Copper Island in Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula where the hard-working, rugged residents persevere through harsh winter weather, sustained by friendship and family, surrounded by natural beauty. As an adult, she lived in the Chicago and Milwaukee areas for seventeen years before returning to the her hometown with her husband and two children.

Kristin’s first book, Heavy, co-authored with her husband, Todd, journeys through the first year after Todd’s ALS diagnosis as the Nevas struggle to find meaning, hold on to faith, and discover joy in the midst of pain.

It is this life experience that brings authenticity to Kristin’s fictional works as she explores themes of love, loss, and faith on Copper Island. Her quirky characters are endearing and wholesome. But they are also full of healthy grit, humor, flaws, and appetites.

My Thoughts...
"Copper Country" is a very good Romance novel. It is book two in the Copper Island series but can be read as a stand alone with being lost. Neva does a wonderful job developing the characters in her story. The book has a homey feel to it  because you will feel like you know the characters. When you connect with the characters it makes the story little more real so to speak. The story is believable and the author doesn't go over the top. With that said the story is captivating and will keep you reading until the very end.I gave this book 4 stars and recommend it to Romance lovers. The Mary Reader received this book from the author for review. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are our own.
