Touching the Clouds by Bonnie Leon & My Review

Touching the Clouds
Bonnie Leon

Kate Evans is an adventurous and independent young woman with a pioneer spirit. She pilots a mail delivery plane in the forbidding Alaskan wilderness, the lone woman in a male profession. But even that seems easy compared to finding true love. She likes a fellow pilot and would even consider marrying him - if it weren't for Paul, a mysterious man on her mail route with a gentle spirit and a past to hide. Can Kate break through the walls Paul has put up around his heart? And will her quest for adventure be her demise?

**Available July 2010 at your favourite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group**

Bonnie Leon is the best-selling author of more than ten historical fiction novels including To Love Anew and The Heart of Thornton Creek. She stays busy teaching women's Bible studies and speaking at writing seminars and conventions. She and her husband, Greg, live in Glide, Oregon.

My Review:
I really enjoyed this book. It was well-written, and I felt a lot of sympathy for Kate. She wasn't an idiot or reckless, but she was brave and courageous. She was willing to do what needed to be done, and she made sure that she did it as safely as possible.
A very good read :)

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.
