Taken By Storm



Lives depend on two women when a train derails high in the remote Alps due to an avalanche. Hudson Mead who is an extreme skier and Steffi Graham who is a rock climber set out over deadly terrain to get help for the others who are buried in the train under the snow from the avalanche some severely injured with sparse food available. Steffi is a librarian who does not have much experience in the harsh dangerous ice and snow conditions and to make the situation more difficult has a lack of confidence in herself. Hudson on the other hand is a reporter for the Associated Press having been in war zones, natural disasters, wherever the story took her but Hudson has no climbing skills and is not used to relying on anybody but herself and her cameraman Joe who is her best friend. 

This is one of the most amazing fiction adventure stories I have ever read. I found my hands hurting from gripping my Kindle so hard do to the fact this story has you by the seat of your pants the whole way through. The book also goes deeper into peoples psyche on the will to survive and having to put full trust into someone you do not know. All the characters are very well developed. This is considered a lesbian book. I assume do to the fact there are lesbians in the book and it has a very small romance part between women. I believe this book is for everyone! If you love adventure books you will love this one. 
Read it you will not regret it!
