Touching the Clouds

By: Bonnie Leon

This novel is book one in the Alaskan Skies series. In this novel Kate Evans is an independent young women who loves flying and has been flying with her dad for years. One day a tragic accident occurs and Kate has to make peace with herself. Here several years later it is still having an effect on her life. She decided to leave home and head to Alaska to pursue her desire to become an Alaskan bush pilot. When she arrives she has to deal with a lot of stuff including proving to the men that she works with that she is just as capable as they are at flying and doing her job. While there she meets Paul Anderson who is living alone up in the Alaskan wilderness. Paul is facing demons of his own from the past and headed to the wilderness to try and find peace. Follow along with Kate and Paul as they face off against the Alaskan Wilderness and each other in this wonderful story of adventure, Romance, and forgiveness.

I really and truly enjoyed reading this novel. It was full of adventure and nail biting, page turning excitement. It kept me hooked until the end and I am looking forward to reading book 2. I loved how Kate followed her dream even though it was looked down on. She chose to follow a field that was mostly male dominated but did not let that stop her from doing what she loved. We all face this today in society where a lot of jobs are so called male dominated areas. I also loved how both Paul and Kate are dealing with issues from their pasts and how each is encouraging the other to let go of the past and to move forward. No one knows what God has in store and why he allows certain things to happen. The one thing to remember is that no matter what happens in this life God means it for our good.

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

Thank you so much for the great review! It's so good to know you enjoyed the book.

I love the characters and their stories. Book two is at the publishing house and I'll begin work on book three in another week.

I can't wait to write it!
