This summer the Stanley sisters and the Miles boys are excited to hike together again, and now they have the unique opportunity to help two of their ranger friends with an outdoor program in the beautiful Montana mountains.
Marlee has always considered herself a willing follower. Give her a direction and she’s happy to help. Her older sister Ellie is a natural leader, and Marlee is content in her role as assistant.
Marlee and her sisters have been assigned to help with Ranger Rose’s team, and they are savoring the adventure. But in a heartbeat while the group is divided by a few hundred feet, fire breaks out between Ranger Rose and Marlee’s group. In this enthralling finale to the Off the Itinerary series, Marlee must face her fears with courage that only God can provide.
“I loved how Marlee had to really step out on her own in this, dealing with all kinds of peer pressure and personal insecurities. It is hugely relatable; I’m pretty sure every teenager knows what it feels like to second guess themselves. However, Marlee really stepped up to the plate, overcoming all kinds of adversity, all with her feet firmly rooted in God and his truth. I rate Ablaze a solid 10 out of 10.” -Nia, Beta Reader
