Touching the Clouds by Bonnie Leon

She went looking for adventure . . . and found more than she bargained for.

Kate Evans is 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 you in with raw emotion and suspense, all against the stunning backdrop of the Alaskan wilds.

Here is my review of this incredible adventure novel:

First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Bonnie Leon and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Touching The Clouds" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

Bonnie Leon’s “Touching The Clouds” is a truly touching read about a woman who decides to pursue a dream rather than walk down the aisle and assume a settled life. Kate Evans has just made the most important decision of her life: to call of her wedding and fly off into the wild blue yonder to become an Alaskan bush pilot. Instead of becoming someone’s wife, she decides to try to make it in a dangerous career and a man’s world! But what choices will she make when Mr. Right really shows up?

This novel boldly and beautifully brings the exciting world of aviation and the wilderness of Alaska to life! I am thrilled that the front and back covers call this book one in the Alaskan Skies series. This is such an entertaining and well-written story that more like it need to be told. I will try to be patient in my anticipation of the next book.

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

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.
