About the book:


Kate Evans is an adventurous and independent young woman with a pioneering spirit. She pilots a mail-delivery plane in the forbidding Alaskan wilderness, the lone woman in a male profession. But even that seems easy compared to finding true love. She likes a fellow pilot and would even consider marrying him--if it weren't for Paul, a mysterious man on her mail route with a gentle spirit and a past to hide. Can Kate break through the walls Paul has put up around his heart? And will her quest for adventure be her demise? Book 1 in the Alaskan Skies series, Touching the Clouds will draw readers in with raw emotion and suspense, all against the stunning backdrop of the Alaskan wilds.


My Review:
I really liked this book. I was sad when it ended. I wanted to spend more time with the characters so I am glad it is a series. The author did a good job making you feel like you were really in Alaska. This book is set in the 1930s and is a Christian fiction historical book. The plot and characters are great and held my attention from page one. Highly Recommended.





Available July 2010 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

Brittaine,

Music to my ears -- "I was sad it ended". It's wonderful to know a story has caught a reader in such a way that the long to remain with the charaters. :-)

Book two is at the publishing house now and I'm working on book three. I promise you a fabulous ending!

Thank you for the good review.

Grace and peace to you,

Bonnie

I enjoyed Touching the Clouds very much! Bonnie Leon's book was intriguing and made me smile!

I thought this novel compared very well with others in the world of Christian historical fiction. It had numerous tricks and turns that kept me turning one page after another well into the night.
