A plane crash forces strangers Ben and Ashley to work together to save their lives.
A snowstorm cancels many outgoing commercial planes in the Salt Lake City area. Dr. Ben Payne charters a small single-engine plane in an attempt to quickly get home. He befriends Ashley in the airport terminal and invites her to hop a ride with him as she is desperate to get home for her wedding festivities. The plane crashes and an incredible story of survival unfolds as relationships are questioned and lives are at stake.
I love a good survival story and was not disappointed in this book from Charles Martin. I especially enjoyed the dynamics between Ashley and Ben and how they worked together to overcome insurmountable odds. A tad far-fetched, the ending developed with a bit of a twist.
