Overview

Raven's Gift

John Morgan and his wife can barely contain their excitement upon arriving as the new teachers in a Yup’ik Eskimo village on the windswept Alaskan tundra. Lured north in search of adventure, the idealistic couple hope to immerse themselves in the ancient Arctic culture. Their move proves disastrous when a deadly epidemic strikes and the isolated community descends into total chaos. When outside help fails to arrive, John’s only hope lies in escaping. His thousand-mile trek across the Alaskan wilderness grows more unlikely to succeed when he encounters a blind Eskimo girl and an elderly woman. The two need his protection from those who would harm them, and he needs their knowledge of the terrain and their companionship to survive. The harsh journey and constant danger push him beyond his limits as he discovers a new sense of hope and the possibility of loving again.

I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway. Receiving this free book in no way influenced my review. This book was amazing. It starts off taking you on a race against time. At first, we meet a young couple moving to Alaska as teachers and they encounter the harsh truth of reality. The Alaskan natives are racing to just survive everyday lives. You are drawn in to the plight of the people and suddenly the terrible race of the unknown plague that appears and now it is a race for humanity. This book is one I could not look away from. The reality ingrained into the fantasy makes this book eerily intense. I became emotionally invested in the lives of each person. It is a book that makes you question yourself. Not just what would you do in that situation, but question how you live your life today!! I recommend that anyone who thinks they have read a great story, stop and read this. Then they will know what a great survival story is.
