ON THE WINGS OF LOVE by Nina Stone
Wiley Hart (short for Wilhelmina) runs an Alaskan Charter business and is known as one of the best pilots in the business. When she flies businessman Dexter Sweeney into the interior of Alaska on business things seem to go as planned. But on the way back they detour around a storm and end up crashing and stranded in the middle of nowhere. Now they must find there way down to the river and try to find their way to the nearest village. It is a risky and life endangering trek and both Wiley and Dexter will come to learn things about each other and themselves that they never took the time to realize before. They are both "take control" type people, but Wiley is all about living in the wilderness and Dexter is a strictly "city boy", so they both will come to realize that "risk-taking and trust often go hand-in-hand".
I enjoyed the way this author took these two characters and let us see who they were, what they were thinking and feeling and where they were coming from. Opposites do attract and these two prove that. I loved the way they interacted with each other and especially the way Dexter never backed down from Wiley, even when she tried to build walls around her feelings. It was a special blend of their personalities that kept this story interesting and enjoyable. One review put it this way, "Ms. Stone provides a tangible example of how a person can live out the Word of God in a real and practical way". That was clearly seen in this story. So climb aboard for a flight that will get your adrenaline flowing and your heart pumping as you fly on the "wings of love".
