This story took my breath away: from attempting to survive a plane crash in extreme snowing conditions at over 11,000 feet, in which two newly acquainted people foster a bond to make it out of there --- to the devotion of the male character to his wife, despite being stranded with a beautiful woman in the middle of nowhere, and behaving like a gentleman throughout. I read the book with bated breath, so well written was it, that at every setback, you really never knew if either of the characters was going to make it. So caught up was I that I didn't see it coming -- the twist in the tale. It's a story about love, and about survival. Most importantly, it's about a love that survives.
