I was told from a great friend to read this book, she made me add it to my wish list, to be read pile, etc and then she told me the second it was on Amazon to buy it and read it! Needless to say it was a great suggestion because it was a fantastic book!
16 year old Ali doesn't have the life of a normal teenager. Having to be the one to take care of her mother instead of the other way around has made her grow up a lot faster than she should have. When her mom dies, Ali is sent to live with a grouchy grandfather that she has never met.
Benjamin is a hard worker but haunted by his past of loosing his daughter, his wife and never having met his only granddaughter. Ben lives in a cabin just up from the lodge that he works at. He leads hunting and fishing trips for the tourists and doesn't think he has time or room in his life for someone else.
Ali and Ben will pull on your heartstrings and make you feel so much love and compassion and then make you want to yell and scream. It is such a wonderful story that shows you what family should really be.
I am so glad that I took the time to read this story, it was all I was told it would be and much much more. I do have to warn you though that there is a scene with a bear that scared me to death! I was sure Ali was a goners, lol!
And I can't just stop there. She also wrote "Maggie's Turn" which I loved just as much if not more. She's a great talent and as long as she keeps writing, I'll keep reading. Her stories might be listed as 'romance' or 'women's stories', but even as a man, I was more than happy to have discovered her novels.
You won't be wrong by buying this novel. You'll enjoy it, I guarantee it.
