Inspirational fiction writer Leon (Sydney Cove series) begins a new series set in Alaska during the 1930s. Kate Evans is a pilot who wants nothing more than to fly the Alaskan skies. Kate is so determined that she breaks her engagement to a childhood sweetheart and flies alone to Alaska looking for work. She discovers that the men who hire pilots dont want to risk hiring a woman pilot, so she settles for working in a local store until she can prove herself capable and tough enough to handle the Alaskan bush. She finally succeeds in landing a mail-delivery job, where she meets the mysterious Paul Anderson, who does his level best not to be attracted to her. Circumstances throw the two together, and they discover that they each have a similar significant secret theyre hiding from each other and the world. Slowly, Kate and Paul tease what is hidden out of each other through trust and over time. Leons work is neatly written, yet there are plot settings readers will see from a mile away coming in for a landing. (July) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
