When tragedy takes Ali Berg’s husband and young daughter from her, stealing everything she once took for granted, Ali struggles to make sense of the loss, and her anger—and to find meaning in her own life again.

Her search for answers takes her on a ten-month, cross-country road trip to reconnect with relatives, friends and mentors.  She personally delivers a hand-written letter to each one, reminiscing and thanking them for the role they played in shaping her life.

This inspirational story is set against a Pacific Northwest backdrop. Go behind the scenes at Skagit Speedway and Skydive Snohomish, board the Snow Train to Bavarian-themed Leavenworth, and visit dozens of other Northwest locations. Then hop in the passenger seat next to Ali for an adventurous, cross-country journey to destinations as diverse as Kalispell, MT, Xenia, OH, and Atlanta, GA, before returning to the comfort of her home-sweet-home in Issaquah, WA.

About the Author:

In my heart-of-hearts, I am a teacher. Unfortunately, I don’t believe I possess the temperament to be happy or successful teaching in a traditional classroom setting, so I have always found other ways to fulfill my perceived vocation. For many years, I developed and presented workshops on topics as varied as personal budgeting, leadership development and catechism.

Someone once pointed out to me that storytelling is the most powerful and well-received form of teaching. That’s one reason that Jesus, among other great teachers, used it so liberally and to such effect.

Since that time, I have dreamed of coming up with an entertaining and inspiring story that would allow me to share some of the life lessons I’ve learned. In particular, I wanted to tell a story that would elucidate the role of gratitude in creating and living a joyful life. Since I Last Saw You is the result of that desire.

Thanksgiving—the most underappreciated holiday on the American calendar, in my opinion—seemed like a perfect backdrop for such a tale, and is featured prominently in my novel. It’s my hope and my dream that Since I Last Saw You becomes a holiday tradition— a story that readers will want to revisit year after year and share with their families—much in the way that watching It’s a Wonderful Life is for me.
