You can’t read this story without finding yourself longing for an adventure in Alaska. Ms. Leon’s creates a main character that acts as a reflection of the land she loved, both wild and beautiful. The story takes the reader along on a ride with Kate, an adventurous young lady pursuing her dreams to be an Alaskan bush pilot during the Great Depression. The author has done an amazing job of research. Details enhance the story and open the reader’s mind to experience they may never have explored before. Sprinkled within Kate’s story are the struggles of Paul, a man using Alaska as an escape from his past. The characters are vivid, as is the setting. I enjoyed the secondary characters as much as the main characters.
