Touching the Clouds
Reviewed by Cindy Loven
Kate Evans was not the typical young woman that you would meet in 1935. She was determined to make a life for herself, doing what she loved best. Flying. She wanted to be a bush pilot in Alaska. Virtually unheard of in those days. But she was determined. Haunted by an accident that killed her best friend, she was sure that some people hated her. She has to prove that she was capable of doing this. Prove it to herself more than anyone else.
She moved to Alaska, breaking off her engagement and canceling her wedding to her childhood sweetheart. It took a bit but she got a job flying mail in Alaska. She loved her job, and even more as she was giving more flying jobs.
Paul Anderson was in Alaska, living in the wilderness, hiding from a past that haunted him. Loosing his young wife in childbirth, has him convinced that he can not save anyone. As a doctor he felt that he should have been able to save her.
Will Kate and Paul each come to terms with the pasts that haunt them? Will they be friends? Will Kate be able to stay safe in her dangerous job?
