The Mountain Between Us ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
By Charles Martin
Martin has several books to his credit. It this is the first of his I have read. The Mountain Between Us is a story of survival in multiple ways.
A snow storm prompts Dr. Ben Payne to hire a charter flight out of Salt Lake City to hopefully get him home where he has patients who need him. He invites Ashley who he has just met to join him, knowing their cancelled flight is going to make her miss her own wedding.
But shortly into the flight and over a mountainous and inhospitable terrain the pilot of the flight has a heart attack, dies and they crash land in the middle of nowhere.
This page turner is a well written story of human survival not just on the side of a mountain, starving and injured, but in life full of love, tragedy and loss.
I did not love the ending, but I did enjoy this book very much and couldn’t put it down. Four stars for The Mountain Between Us.
