The Mountain Between Us

The Mountain Between Us by Charles Martin is the book I stayed up until midnight reading the other night. I had gotten to a part where I really wanted to know what happened and didn't want to skip ahead just to find out what happened. The story is about Ben Payne and Ashley Knox. Ben and Ashley want to get home, but it is January in Utah, and there is a winter storm. Ben finds a pilot with a charter plane that will fly them out. After the plane crashes, Ben has to figure out how to survive and get out of there. At first, the story reminded me of The Hatchet by Gary Paulsen, but as I continued reading it is really more about Ben's life. Not my favorite book by Martin, but it was a good story, and I would recommend it. It would be a good book to read with a book club as well.

Thanks for the book suggestion! I am always looking for ideas for our Book Club. We just read A Thousand Splendid Suns for this month and I would highly recommend it. It is set in Afghanistan and paints real people, faces, and feelings that help us understand such a crisis in our world. Though a sad and tough read, it's also beautiful and hopeful.

Hi, Clair

I may have to read this one. I just finished Take One, Take Two , Take Three, take Four and Leaving by Karen Kingsbury. Now I have to wait for Learning as it just came out this month. Enjoy the summer!!
