Book Description

Kate Evans may be a woman in a man's profession, but as Alaskan bush pilots go she's one of the best. She often works closely with doctor Paul Anderson, bringing much needed medical services to far-flung people in the forbidding wilderness. But when a new boss who is against women pilots takes over the airfield, Kate's dreams--and even her life--are at stake. Can she prove her worth? Or will she die trying? And will she ever be able to truly surrender to her growing love for Paul?

Full of high-flying adventure and tender personal moments, Wings of Promise is the exciting second book in the Alaskan Skies series.

Her spunk has always gotten her through tough times. But does she have what it takes to go the distance?

Kate Evans may be a woman in a man's profession, but as Alaskan bush pilots go she's one of the best. If only her personal life wasn't so complicated. Torn between her affection for fellow pilot Mike Conlin and doctor Paul Anderson, Kate longs for clarity in her heart. But when a terrible tragedy occurs, her mind may be made up for her.

Full of high-flying adventure and tender personal moments, Wings of Promise will sweep you away to the Alaskan skies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wings of Promise - Alaskan Dream Story! Love it! September 5, 2012
Format:Paperback
Bonnie Leon is a gifted writer who brings Alaska, a place most of us will never visit, right into our homes and our hearts. Each character comes alive and fits right into the Alaskan Wilderness and/or Kate Evans' home in Yakima, Washington. There is just enough historical fact to draw the reader into the 1930's. Kate is a bush pilot in Alaska - a woman in a man's world. She is our Amelia Earhart. The author does, in fact, mention the famous flying legend. There were some real surprises in this book, but I shall not spoil it for you who are about to read. I do think it is important to read this series in order. I read the first book, Touching the Clouds, on my kindle. I found myself thinking about Kate's adventures and lack of conclusion to her love-life and had to pick up copies of the sequels. I've just discovered this author and look forward to the Sydney Cove Series and other books by Bonnie Leon. She has a gentle way of infusing faith into the story. I always appreciate this aspect in books. Enjoy!
Dawn Kurtz, author of the Christian novel: Secret of the Mexican Doll

By Astrid

This book is about life in the Alaskan territories. It is amazing how much the book tells about this part of the world. It is really interesting, how the people lived there. You read it all while you enjoy the story going through the book about Paul and his wife. I liked reading this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Your Time! May 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had never before read any of Bonnie Leon's books, but now know I will always choose this author's books. Wings of Promise took me from Yakima, WA, where I was born, to Alaska, where I have visited, which in itself was exciting. Bonnie's descriptions of the area were superb; I felt like I was living in Alaska. The story and characters grabbed me and kept me reading. I would definitely recommend this book and the other two books in the series--I read them all!

More About the Author

Storytelling has always been an integral part of Bonnie Leon's life. From childhood, she cherished the legends and family history handed down through her Aleut ancestors.

Throughout the ensuing years, Bonnie dabbled at writing but didn't seriously consider becoming a professional author. Instead, as a young woman, she happily stepped into the full-time profession of homemaker and mother. Pollywog hunting, finger-painting, blackberry picking, and creating fun messes in the kitchen with her children are some of her most precious and irreplaceable memories.

When her youngest child was nine years old, Bonnie decided it was time to return to the working world. She took a position in her hometown, working with the elderly and handicapped.

Then on June 11, 1991, her world was shattered when a log truck hit the van she was driving. The accident left her unable to work, and after months of rehabilitation she was told by physicians that she would never return to a normal life. Facing a daunting fight to reclaim her life and feeling as if she had nothing to offer the world, she asked God to give her something to do that mattered.

His answer came when she received a scholarship to attend the Oregon Christian Writer's Summer Conference. That conference ignited Bonnie's passion for literature and for writing, and she has been writing ever since.

Her first book, The Journey of Eleven Moons was released by Thomas Nelson in 1994 and made the CBA bestsellers list.

Since that time, she has written and published nineteen historical novels. Two of her series, The Sydney Cove Series, and The Queensland Chronicles, published by Revell, were published in Dutch-language editions by Ultgeverij De Banier bv, an organization based in The Netherlands. Her books are truly being read across the globe!

And with each book she writes, her love for the craft and the challenges of writing grows. "The learning never ends," she says, "But I relish the challenge of becoming a writer known for quality storytelling."

In addition to her work as a writer, Bonnie has a passion for teaching of all kinds, especially on the art and intricacies of storytelling. She teaches at conferences and workshops and says, "There's nothing more thrilling than to see a student's eyes light up with understanding as she grasps the concepts of the writing craft and begins to believe she can tell stories someone else will want to read."

Bonnie is also a regular speaker at women's church groups, writing groups, and business organizations. For more information on Bonnie's speaking topics and schedule, please click here.
