Favor Rowan is a 24 year old young woman who has lived on “her” mountain all of her life. Most of her life she has lived alone since her mother’s death when Favor was a child. Never having been around people except for her mother and those that she helps on the mountain Favor is surprised when she hears a loud crash and discovers that a plane has fallen from the sky and exploded on her snow bound and isolated mountain.
Keeton Metro had lost a lot in this tragic crash and as he awakens from a coma he must come to terms with the realization that his band mates and friends have perished. He must also come to the realization that he is snowbound on this mountain with a stranger who has saved his life, is taking care of him, but who has no way to communicate with the world to let Keeton’s family know that he is alive.
The winter months spent trapped on the mountain of course lends time for Keeton’s healing and his feelings for Favor to grow. Favor also begins to see Keeton as a desirable man even thought she is an innocent when it comes to relationships of any kind. In the shelter of Favor’s mountain cabin it is almost easy for them to flourish, but will Favor be able to be accepted and use her survival skills in the concrete jungle of the city where Keeton lives?
I love the way that CJ England takes us on this journey to discover the characters from their own perspectives. I learned a lot about Favor and how she had to foresee and plan so many daily tasks in order to meet her needs, in many ways, needs that we take for granted such as heat, food, medicine, repairing roofs from winter damage, etc. This novel definitely takes the reader into another world and way of thinking which I find very refreshing as well as enticing. I would definitely recommend this book to my friends and re-read it myself in order to enjoy it all over again. This is definitely an author to keep an eye on.
