Publisher's Summary

On a stormy winter night, two strangers wait for a flight at the Salt Lake City airport. Ashley Knox is an attractive, successful writer, who is flying East for her much anticipated wedding. Dr. Ben Payne has just wrapped up a medical conference and is also eager to get back East for a slate of surgeries he has scheduled for the following day. When the last outgoing flight is cancelled due to a broken de-icer and a forthcoming storm, Ben finds a charter plane that can take him around the storm and drop him in Denver to catch a connection. And when the pilot says the single engine prop plane can fit one more, if barely, Ben offers the seat to Ashley, knowing that she needs to get back just as urgently. And then the unthinkable happens. The pilot has a heart attack mid-flight, and the plane crashes into the High Uintas Wilderness - one of the largest stretches of harsh and remote land in the United States.

Ben, who has broken ribs and Ashley, who suffers a terrible leg fracture, along with the pilot's dog, are faced with an incredibly harrowing battle to survive. Fortunately, Ben is a medical professional and avid climber. With little hope for rescue, he must nurse Ashley back to health and figure out how they are going to get off the mountain, where the temperature hovers in the teens.

Meanwhile, Ashley soon realizes that the very private Ben has some serious emotional wounds to heal as well. He explains to Ashley that he is separated from his beloved wife, but in a long standing tradition, he faithfully records messages for her on his voice recorder, reflecting on their love affair. As Ashley eavesdrops on Ben's tender words to his estranged wife she comes to fear that when it comes to her own love story, she's just settling. And what's more: she begins to realize that the man she is really attracted to, the man she may love, is Ben.

    "From beginning to end"

    I loved this book from the love story to the story of survival in both life and the wilderness. Great performance as well, especially loved Ashley's voice with a slight southern drawl.

    "Worst book ever"

    This is probably the worst book I have ever read/listened to. The events are unrealistic. The whole thing is ridiculous. I wish I could have those 10 hours of my life back.

    I enjoy reading Lynn Austin's historical fiction. Her books oh the Civil are awesome as well.

    Story
    "Too much sap."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Romance readers.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The Storied Life of AJ Fikry


    What didn’t you like about George Newbern’s performance?

    I've been trying to listen to every book that George Newbern reads. I have found him to be a FABULOUS reader, so I was very disappointed in this performance. Where did you go, George? Was it the story that caused you to read in such a breathy, sappy and monotone voice? Bummer.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Boredom. And eye-rolling ... too much gush.


    Any additional comments?

    I really wanted to like this and just could hardly bear getting through it. The premise was good, but way too sappy. And I skipped through the recordings to his wife ... it just didn't work for me.

    "Poor writing, story not believable"

    Poor writing, story not believable. I love fun fiction, adventure/survivor stories/TV/films. But the writing was corny, details not fully believable, and I found myself rolling my eyes throughout the story.

    "Excellent Exciting and Endearing"

    I loved the narrator and the story. 4.5. The characters were human and string and the story was page-turning and I couldn't put it down.
