once upon an alaska summer
Reviewed in the United States on November 7, 2019
Bryn goes to Alaska every 5 years with her father. But now she goes on her own. Bryn's dream has always been to become a doctor. Nothing is going to get in her way, even her attraction for Eli. Eli and his family have lived across the lake from Bryn's family cabin. Bryn and Eli are attracted to each other, but Bryn is going back to the lower 48 for medical school and Eli is staying in Alaska to open his own charter tour business. Both determined to live their dreams, yet they can't stop what the heart wants between them.
I really enjoyed this story. The setting was amazing. I've always had a fascination with Alaska so it was fun to be immersed in Alaska through the story. I enjoyed how years down the road Bryn and Eli's dreams kind of meshed through his charter business and her doctoring. The spiritual parts of the story were well-written and portrayed. I enjoyed how independent Bryn was. I like strong female characters. I especially like it when they aren't rash in their attempt to prove to a man that they can take care of themselves. As a doctor we got to see Bryn in action as she treated people all over the remote parts of Alaska. There was danger, there was excitement and there was romance all wrapped up perfectly in a lovely story that spans a 10 year time period.
