Tayler Hale is ahead of her time as one of the first women naturalists. She has always loved adventure and the great outdoors, and her remote job location also helps keep her away from the clutches of the man to whom she once made a foolish promise. It seems she must keep running, however, and in secret, her boss from Yellowstone arranges for a new job . . . in Alaska.
The popular Curry Hotel continues to thrive in 1929 as more visitors come to Alaska and venture into the massive national park surrounding Denali. Recent graduate Thomas Smith has returned to the hotel and the people he considers family. But when a woman naturalist comes to fill the open position and he must work with her, everything becomes complicated.
The summer brings unexpected guests and trouble to Curry. With his reputation at stake, will Thomas be able to protect Tayler from the danger that follows?
Genre: Historical fiction.
My Rating: 3 stars.
Recommendation: 16 up.
My favorite character is: Tayler and Thomas were wonderful characters, and I loved their story, but my favorite of all the characters was Mrs. Jackson and her admirers.
My Verse for Mrs. Jackson is Proverbs 15:1
15 A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger. (King James Version.)
My thoughts: Until the last 5 to 10 chapters I loved this book then there were some less than stellar suggestions, talk, and attitude (from unsaved characters) while I understand that the characters were not Christians and needed to be saved the authors took it a little too far for me and I can only give this story 3 stars because of it. I loved the beginning and the last three pages and the characters, plot, and descriptions were terrific the suggestions took a good bit of enjoyment out of the book.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review, and I’m truly happy to provide it!
