Now we see her as a twenty six year old living in Toronto with her mother and step father, life is good, until things spiralled out of control all within a day as she's being laid off from her job as a risk analyst for a bank, then that same night she breaks up with her boyfriend then a phone call she got from an acquaintance of her fathers set her on a path she never thought she'd be going down, her father Wren is sick and it may be her last chance of getting to know the man who she hasn't seen for many years. So she knows it's in her best interest to see him, so off to Alaska she goes with a warning ringing in her ears from her mother 'Just don't make the same mistake I did and fall in love with one of those pilots.'

Wren Calla's father owns a fleet of airplanes which they use to transport goods to outposts in the surrounding Alaskan area and has a few workers that helps around the small airport, one in particular Jonah, an Alaskan bush pilot and bachelor, and is one of Wren's most trusted pilots is there that day to pick up Calla. These two butt heads as soon as they meet, he thinks he knows her kind, and she's the kind that will turn her nose up at their way of living and high tail it back to the big smoke. 

This was one of my most highly anticipated books of August and I am so glad I could fit it in. This reminded me so much of a doco series my partner loves called ‘Yukon Men’ which was so similar to this. 
I’ve not read anything quite like this before, and because of that rare uniqueness I also didn’t want it to end. I craved more, I wanted more, I needed more. I wanted to stay with these characters longer, never wanting their journey to end. 
This had me giggling, swooning, an emotional sad journey, all the feels in the world!! So easy to get into, so hard to put down, there is absolutely nothing I would change about this book. This captivated me from the get go, sunk it's claws in so deep I fell in love with this as soon as I started reading..

Crazy loved this book. Highly recommend!! 👍🏻
Calla Fletcher wasn't even two when her mother took her and fled the Alaskan wild, unable to handle the isolation of the extreme, rural lifestyle, leaving behind Calla’s father, Wren Fletcher, in the process. Calla never looked back, and at twenty-six, a busy life in Toronto is all she knows. But when Calla learns that Wren’s days may be numbered, she knows that it’s time to make the long trip back to the remote frontier town where she was born.

She braves the roaming wildlife, the odd daylight hours, the exorbitant prices, and even the occasional—dear God—outhouse, all for the chance to connect with her father: a man who, despite his many faults, she can’t help but care for. While she struggles to adjust to this rugged environment, Jonah—the unkempt, obnoxious, and proud Alaskan pilot who helps keep her father’s charter plane company operational—can’t imagine calling anywhere else home. And he’s clearly waiting with one hand on the throttle to fly this city girl back to where she belongs, convinced that she’s too pampered to handle the wild.

Jonah is probably right, but Calla is determined to prove him wrong. Soon, she finds herself forming an unexpected bond with the burly pilot. As his undercurrent of disapproval dwindles, it’s replaced by friendship—or perhaps something deeper? But Calla is not in Alaska to stay and Jonah will never leave. It would be foolish of her to kindle a romance, to take the same path her parents tried—and failed at—years ago. It’s a simple truth that turns out to be not so simple after all.
