synopsis header
“After her son goes missing, Joanna Watson enlists Isaac Bowen–a man she prays has enough experience in the rugged country–to help. As they press on against the elements, they find encouragement in the tentative trust that grows between them, but whether it can withstand the danger and coming confrontation is far from certain in this wild, unpredictable land.” (Goodreads)

I may have requested this because the main character’s name was the same as mine. Oops, haha. But in all seriousness, I really loved the cover and the blurb associated with this book. The whole name thing was just the icing on the cake for me to request this.

Joanna is a very courageous character who will stop at nothing to save her son. As a mother, it’s easy to connect with her on this level because I know I would do anything for my daughter. The bond between a mother and her child is so important and enjoyed seeing it in this book.

She is not the only character that gets a point-of-view. Isaac Bowen is one of those characters and he helps Joanna on the long trek to bring her son back. It was harder to connect or feeling anything for him or the other characters in the book but I liked the plot so it didn’t bother me much.

The pacing for this book is not slow in any way. Right within the first 10% we are pushed into the plot and it doesn’t stop. I liked that this author didn’t hold back on the plot twists. It was also cool to see how both Joanna and Isaac’s story wove together. Faith/ religion is also very important to these characters and is talked about throughout the book. It was nice to see and I really enjoyed it.

It was the first book I have read by this author and besides the connecting with characters, the only other thing I hard a time with was the writing style.

Overall, it was a good book and I’d definitely check out other books by this author.

  1. This sounds really good, but I don’t know how I’d feel about not connected well with Isaac, who coincidentally has my maiden name (since you mentioned the shared names – LOL!) You have me considering this one, though! Great review!
