My Thoughts: 
This book is part of the Alaskan Refuge series by Alana Terry. I must say that after reading this book I am eagerly awaiting her next in the series. This tale is  one that is guaranteed to keep you in suspense throughout. 

All of the characters are described in such a detailed realistic way that you feel the deep emotions as you walk alongside Kimmie on her difficult life journey. This young lady who would sacrifice anything for her little brother, who has suffered alongside his sister , at the hand of a stepfather. Their past has been filled with terror and abuse. Alana exhibits her talent in drawing her readers into these individuals' lives. Along comes a stater trooper who shares Kimmie's commitment to justice and who also shares her love of the Lord. 

The plot is full of twists and turns, keeping the reader totally engrossed from beginning to end. The rugged countryside of Alaska is perfect for this adventure. You feel the cold as the two young people attempt to escape a horrible situation.

This is definitely a five star book!! The underlying theme of God's goodness and faithfulness to see us through any troubles remains with the reader for some time after reading this book. What a great reminder that He will forgive our past and give us hope for the future.

This book was received from CelebrateLit. The thoughts and opinions expressed are honest and my own.

More from Alana

Something some of my fans may not know about me is while I grew up in the continental United States, I have made my home with my husband and children in Alaska for many years now. I have grown to love Alaska, which is probably why I was so excited to write this series about the Alaskan wilderness to share a bit of my favorite parts of Alaska with my readers.
In Alaska, we have a phrase that perfectly describes the fall season: Termination Dust.
That’s when the first snow falls on the mountains, signifying the end of summer. Fall in Alaska is beautiful. Orange on the tips of the trees lend a splash of color against the backdrop of unending green. For the first time since May, it gets dark enough to see the stars. If you brave the cold and happen to be awake at 1 am, you might even see some shooting stars.
I hope you enjoy reading about Kimmie and her autistic brother as much as I enjoyed writing their story. As with all my suspense novels, if you like determined characters, harsh landscapes, and faith under fire, get ready to dive headfirst into a gripping adventure today!
