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.

    "Ok book, not great."

    The part on the mountain was interesting, but the love story was to obvious. More of the mountain would have been better.

    "Good"

    It started out as a the movie is better than the book kinda thing. But the further the story gets, it is really a sad, adventurous loving story.

    Good storytelling that painted the picture. The narration was just right. Enjoyed the story, characters, especially Tank, and the twist. Audible 20.

    Story
    "Ugh. "

    I thought this would be an adventure story, but it's just a romance novel with contrived plot twists and purposely misguiding narrative. Starts ok, but gets worse and worse. The end made me embarrassed for myself for reading it in the first place. Also, writing related to medicine (or the profession of) is lazy and inaccurate.

    "Couldn't put it down!"

    This was a great story about resiliency and determination. The characters came to life and were believable.

    I could not put this down! I found myself wondering what mess they could get into next, and how amazing it was that there was still hope.

    "Not so sure"

    The voice was nice, easy to listen to. Good job flipping between characters. The dialogue is a bit simple. Will be interesting to see if it gets smarter for the movie. I'm not much fon lost in the mountains books and still enjoyed it. Spoiler alert. It's not like they were together for a year. Clearly the author never worked on a political campaign or a long court battle. Or maybe even summer camp. Spending 4 weeks with someone surviving and then to think you are in love is predictable and romantic but not so interesting.
