From the publicity information: A young widow and her physically challenged daughter survive a plane crash in the Alaskan mountains but must puzzle together how it relates to the recent death of their husband and father. Written by a mother and her teenage daughter whose rare medical condition led to their family’s story being shared with millions on the hit ABC television program Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Elements of their real-life story are worked into this exciting novel.
This book featured in my Good Friday discussion about Christian fiction and proselytising publisher behaviour. As I already noted in that article, I won’t be requesting a book from this publisher again.
I did a little better with this effort from B&H Publishing than I did with its predecessor, but I gave on this at 130 pages. The text reads very much like teenaged writing – the chapters are far too short as the narrative bounces back and forth between the three main characters in tiny bursts, and there must have been some heavy fingers on the exclamation point key given their liberal use.
The adventure is set up far too quickly, as is the romance, and I have yet to figure out where the Native Alaskan aspect fits into things…
Confusing. Promising, but too confusing to continue with.
