Touching the Clouds by Bonnie Leon Book Review


Touching the Clouds
by Bonnie Leon
Alaskan Skies series
ISBN: 978-0-8007-3359-9

From the publisher:

Author Bonnie Leon takes readers to new heights in her latest book, Touching the Clouds, the first book in the new Alaskan Skies series.

Leon introduces readers to Kate Evans, an adventurous and independent young woman with a pioneering spirit. When she leaves her home in Washington State to follow her dream of being an Alaskan bush pilot, she knows it will be an uphill battle. But she never expected it to be quite like this. As the lone woman in a man's world, she finds that contending with people's expectations is almost as treacherous as navigating the wild arctic storms.

When she crosses paths with a mysterious man living alone in the forbidding wilderness, she faces a new challenge. Can Kate break through the walls he has put up around his heart? And will fear keep her from realizing her dreams?

My Review:

There are some books that I just love and some books that are just time fillers.  This is one that I LOVE! 

The author uses language that just places me in Alaska with pilot that has spunk.  (When I grow up, I want to be like her!)

The book was truly enjoyable.  The main character must get through a internal battle – as well as others.  It is heart pounding in some places.

Because of mature material, I could not suggest this book for the younger reader. 

This book did not provoke any spiritual growth but did help my understanding of the state of Alaska.

Blessings to you!  You are loved!!!
