Award–winning Christian fiction novelist Erin Bartels has received high praise for her captivating and thought-provoking storylines. Since the release of her debut novel, We Hope for Better Things, in January of 2019, Bartels has won the prestigious 2020 Michigan Notable Book Award and was selected as a finalist for a 2019 Christy Award and the 2020 Star Award from the Women’s Fiction Writers Association. Now, Bartels delivers another immersive tale set in her home state of Michigan, drawing on some of her own adventures, in All That We Carried—a story about the complexities of grief, faith, and sisterhood.
Ten years ago, sisters Olivia and Melanie Greene were on a hiking trip when their parents were in a fatal car accident. They haven’t seen each other since. Olivia coped with the loss by plunging herself into law school, work, and a materialist view of the world—what you see is what you get, and that’s all you get. Melanie dropped out of college and developed an online life-coaching business around her cafeteria-style spirituality—a little of this, a little of that, whatever makes you happy.
Now, at Melanie’s insistence (and against Olivia’s better judgment), they are embarking on a hike in the Porcupine Mountains of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. In this remote wilderness they’ll face their deepest fears, question their most dearly held beliefs, and begin to see that perhaps the best way to move forward is the one way they had never considered.
