Being from Alaska, I was interested in the correctness of the geographical references, early customs, and cultural things and they were very accurate along with the weather, etc. The story was awesome; I had #1 and ordered #2 and #3 before I finished it so they would be here as soon as possible. They came the day I finished #1. I could hardly put them down and was disappointed when I'd finished #3. I find myself still thinking about the characters in that series. Thank you for writing these books, Bonnie.
Kate Evans Anderson, the female bush pilot we love and admire from Bonnie Leon's Alaskan Skies series, is off on more adventures in this third and final book, Joy Takes Flight. It begins with her marriage to Paul, which doesn't occur without some worry and troubleâ€”just like the rest of their lives. Kate's independent nature and the desire to prove herself adds stress to their sometimes perilous lives in the harsh Alaskan wilderness.
Paul's past finally draws him back to deal with all he left behind in California years ago, things he still hasn't shared with Kate. Will their marriage survive? Join the wild ride in another adventure dealing with both the forces of nature and human nature. Along the way, readers may glean wisdom for handling the drama of their own lives.
I loved reading about Paul and Kate and the way it is so true to life. Ive enjoyed following them on their journeys in Alaska and even in the lower states in this last book. A wonderful series to read.
Kate, a bush pilot in Alaska, has forged her position in an area where men pilots dominate. Before Kate and Paul, a medical doctor, marry he promises her she can continue her role as pilot. When a doctor is needed in any part of Alaska, she flies and he is the doctor she takes to where ever the need awaits. When tragedy hits the newlyweds, Paul blames himself. His brother calls him that their mother is near death and Paul returns to his former home in San Francisco. Kate, impatient that Paul hasn't returned when planned, flies to San Francisco to urge him to return to Alaska. Can the two find a compromise that will meld them together? A great conclusion to Leon's Alaskan Series of books. The vivid description of setting makes the reader feel the cold as Kate pulls her parka's hood tighter around her face. Action-packed adventures, romance, and memorable characters.
