Read from June 11 to 18, 2012

A chance meeting, a blizzard and a last minute decision to rent a small plane begin the journey of Ben, a doctor looking to get home, and Ashley, a writer trying to get home for her wedding. When the plane crashes in the Uintas Mountains leaving the pilot dead and Ashely's leg broken, Ben must find a way for both of them to survive. I couldn't put the book down in following each footstep and harrowing moment on their trek out of the mountains. Beautifully interspersed is the story of a love between Ben and Rachel that defines soul mates, and what broke them apart. Ben and Ashley are each seeking to fill holes in their hearts, and Ben is trying to pick up the pieces of his broken heart. Ben and Ashley each draw on the other's strengths to overcome one adversity and set back after another in navigating their way out of the mountains. They form a bond of both friendship and love. Each chapter unfolds another layer of Ben's heart to finally reveal its raw center, and how a moment can change a life forever, not once, but twice.
Will be recommending this book to others.
