Touching the Clouds Review

Review: I think there's something about the wilds of Alaska that appeals to people. It's a harsh land that demands a lot of the people who live there. This book highlights the enterprising and dare devil spirit required to make a go of living there in the 1930s. I loved Kate. How can you not when she's a free spirit who's willing to do things that look vaguely improper -- like flying a plane. Yet not even Alaska is far enough to run from her demons. This book is a fresh addition to historical romance.

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?

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 during the 1930s.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher for review purposes. The opinions expressed are mine alone.
