"Touching The Clouds" Book Review


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?

I love a good adventure and that is just what this book brings to the table. Set in Alaska while it is still a territory, Kate has an adventurous spirit that just isn't ready to be tamed yet. She leaves her fiancee before the wedding because even though they have been friends their whole lives growing up in Washington, she just doesn't feel ready to settle down. She has a dream and that involves the Alaska territory and piloting. She sets out to accomplish just that and it was fun to join her on her journey. This is a good beginning to a new series and I am curious to see where Bonnie Leon is going to take these characters in the future, I plan on tagging along for the ride.

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.

I wrote my own review that can be found here:
