Wow! What a great read! This is a survival/love story...it is a book that will stay with me for awhile. It grabbed me from the first page and I had a hard time putting it down. Highly recommend!!
This is the first book I've read by Charles Martin. I really enjoyed it. I started reading it as I was at the airport waiting for a plane that was having mechanical issues. The story sucked me in quickly and I couldn't put it down. What a story of survival!! The description was so good I found myself cringing at times like I was there with the characters. I liked the flow of the story, just when they were getting ahead, a set back... GOOD twist at the end.
The story will stick with me for awhile to come and I plan to read other books by Mr. Martin.
Wow, what an ending this book has! Winter, snowbound survival stories are not usually my cup of tea, but this book held my interest because of the underlying love story that was revealed every other chapter through the main character's tape recordings to his wife. This was a fairly easy read, but it did drag a bit in the middle for me. Overall, I DO recommend this book - the ending especially is phenominal.
Loved it!! I have a crush on Charles Martin now. This is the first I've read of him and I only set the book down twice. I was smacked right between the eyes with the twist and really liked the ending. It was so sweetly romantic and refreshingly not smutty which makes this book so wonderful. Everyone should be lucky enough to feel that depth of love.
This is another very good book from Charles Martin who is the author of "Where the River Ends". It is a page-turning story of love and survival. The last chapter is uplifting and life changing. I'll never forget the following: "...Maybe each of us was once a complete whole. A clear picture. A single piece. Then something happened to crack and shatter us. Leaving us disconnected, torn and splintered. Then someone comes along who mends a tattered edge, or returns a piece. The process is tedious..." The book is beautifully written that reaffirms your belief in the power of love to sustain us.
