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?
Author, Bonnie Leon (photo above), does an amazing job at developing a main character with such courage, boldness, stubbornness and charm. The leading lady, Kate, takes off to the wilderness against the advice of her fiance and her mother to prove that she can make it as a female pilot in the Alaskan bush, in a "man's world." When reading this I wondered if I would have the guts to do what she did- leave friends, family, and a fiance behind and travel to an unknown land where she had no job, no place to stay and knew no one - and I'm not sure I would. Kate was not only a woman of extreme bravery but also a woman of character. On several occasions she had the chance to look out for her best interst or to put others first, and she always chose to put others ahead of herself, even in the face of danger. That shows true character! I really enjoyed this novel and can't wait to read books 2 and 3 in this series!
