BeccaRae5 Stars Out Of 5Love this whole series!September 2, 2019BeccaRaeQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I'm so thrilled that Thomas finally got his love story! Without spoiling any of the other wonderful lovey moments, I'm overjoyed that he wasn't the only one. The saddest thing about finishing this novel was that it was the end of the series and I'm not ready to let all of the wonderful characters go. The authors have stated that each of the books in this series can be read as standalones if you want, and while I agree theycould,if you fully want to be able to appreciate this last one for what it is then I'd recommend starting from the beginning.
It didn't take me long to adore Tayler's character. My heart went out to her as she struck out on her own with no real support system behind her. Being not only a woman but ashortwoman in the wild landscape of Alaska, made it that much more difficult for her to be taken seriously. As someone even shorter than her, I resonated with many of the "short girl" sentiments and actively cheered her on.
If there was ever a villain that made my blood boil, Emerson is certainly one of them! I tried valiantly not to wish harm on him so that he couldn't hurt Tayler. I may or may not have found myself actually praying for him that he needed to find Jesus before remembering he wasn't a real person haha.
I think my favorite thing about this entire series was how the people of Curry evolved into a real family. Isn't that one of the beautiful things about the family of Christ? While Jesus is the only one who can truly heal our broken hearts, we are given fellowship with others as a gift as well. Thomas was an orphan, Mrs. Johnson lost her whole family, Cassidy lost her mother, and even more broken relationships existed. Yet through faith in Christ and a whole lot of encouragement, the family that was created was a beautiful picture of what love is all about.
I honestly don't think I can recommend this series enough. This is one that I know is going to stay with me for a very long time. I never thought I could read a book that would make me love the setting of Alaska, but I've found a series that has done just that. (Although, I'm sure it helps that the stories took place in the summer months). If you haven't read it yet you need to go remedy that.
Stacy5 Stars Out Of 5Love in the great outdoors!May 13, 2019StacyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse always craft an entertaining story with faith running through them. This third book in The Heart of Alaska series can be a stand-alone but I'd say to read the other ones as well since they are wonderful.
If you like a story with a spunky, smart heroine and a kind, handsome hero, you'll enjoy this beautiful novel. It's the kind where you think about the characters even after you've finished the book. You'll be hooked from the first page, after all, it's love and the great outdoors of Alaska!
Robin Willson5 Stars Out Of 5Great story of self discovery and forgivenessApril 5, 2019Robin WillsonQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Wealth. Society. Greed. Taylor wanted to get away from them and her family. She had grown up camping and hiking with her father, brother and his friend. A girl after my own heart, she went to college and earned a degree in Botany, then went to work at Yellowstone park as a guide. After her father died, her mother pushed her to marry her brother's friend to unite their fortunes. Since she'd learned the true nature of the man, and her mother was unrelentless, Tylor jumped on an opportunity to go to Curry, Alaska to work. She is perfectly suited for the job, but they were expecting a man. If you read the previous book, you're familiar with the family of the Curry Hotel. You wouldn't need to read the other book first, but you'd be glad that you did. They're a group of special people, centered in their faith in God and Jesus in their lives. A great story of self discovery and forgiveness.
