Touching the Clouds by Bonnie Leon

When this arrived in the mail I wasn't sure if the author could pull off a book with such an independent heroine during the depression. Well, Leon did it 

Kate Evans calls off her marriage and heads to Alaska in her small plane to be a bush pilot.  She leaves Washington State and its heartaches behind, hoping to support herself in the rough Alaskan state.

She runs into major problems, from unpredictable weather and judgment from other male pilots.

She's not the only one hiding in Alaska, so is Paul Anderson. He has his own memories that he is trying to hide from, you'll wonder if he's running from the law or  himself.

While Touching the Clouds has some romantic elements I didn't feel as if the entire story was centered around romance. Reading about Alaska during the depression, 'flying' with Kate and enduring the challenges with her make this book special. Even better this is book one of the Alaskan series so there is more fun to come for Leon's readers.

This book was provided to me by Revell for review. As always if I don't like it I don't review it.
