DB5 Stars Out Of 5CAPTIVATING STORY!March 19, 2020DBQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Absolutely enjoyed this story! From beginning to end, it captivated my interest with it's characters, story line, plot, and setting of Alaska. Very well written by such talented authors. I highly look forward to the next book in the series.
BeccaRae5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful Read!!August 30, 2019BeccaRaeQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I never thought I'd find myself interested in visiting the frigid state of Alaska but lo and behold I've found a book that's officially peaked my interest! From the big picture to the tiny details, Tracie Peterson and Kim Woodhouse managed to create a vivid and tangible setting you can't help but want to fall into.
One thing that I absolutely loved about this book was the amount of history that was seamlessly weaved into the fictional storyline. I appreciate that the authors shared some of the fact vs fiction (Yes, this is another push to read the authors' note at the end!) but I also reveled in the fact that I couldn't tell what was what as I read. I'm not always a note taker as I read but I found myself jotting down the names of several plants and dinner entres that were described so that I could check them out later.
I also cherished how easily the faith element was weaved into this story. It didn't appear to be added or inserted but rather was breathed out through the lives of the characters and felt completely natural. It was heartwarming for me to see the characters bonding with one another over not only what they were experiencing but how God was working in them through those experiences.
I absolutely loved this novel and can't wait to get started on Out of the Ashes which is the next book in the series. I highly recommend it to historical fiction fans!

The magic word 'Alaska' was really all it took for me to take an interest In The Shadow Of Denali. I've read books from the authors individually but this is the first one that they co-authored.
I had a hard time connecting with the main characters at times, finding them both to be quite naive. But I did appreciate Allan's journey to forgiveness, a struggle, which for a myriad of reasons, many of us are familiar with. For me at least, the real stars of the book were the Curry Hotel and Denali 'The Great One'. Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse brought them both life with such vivid descriptions it was almost like being there.
In The Shadow Of Denali is a sweet romance with some dashes of danger from a nasty villain and especially the capricious Alaskan weather. Fans of both authors will enjoy this trip to Alaska of the 1920s.
