Kate Evans may be a woman in a man's profession, but as Alaskan bush pilots go she's one of the best. She often works closely with doctor Paul Anderson, bringing much needed medical services to far-flung people in the forbidding wilderness. But when a new boss who is against women pilots takes over the airfield, Kate's dreams—and even her life—are at stake. Can she prove her worth? Or will she die trying? And will she ever be able to truly surrender to her growing love for Paul?

Full of high-flying adventure and tender personal moments, Wings of Promise is the exciting second book in the Alaskan Skies series.

In this series I enjoyed the descriptions of Alaska as it was one of the most enjoyable 3 month vacation we ever have taken. The story is light and easy reading and Bonnie Leon has a way of describing things that does not go overboard.

I've always wanted to go to Alaska, but never thought I'd take a tour like Bonnie Leon created in Wings of Promise. Forget IMAX. The tour with Kate brought me on a tour of the wilderness, showed me the Northern Lights, and flew me over snowy mountains in her airplane. We delivered the mail, even a litter of smelly pigs, and often brought the doctor to ill natives. We flew low over the trees searching for lost polar bear hunters, and made several treacherous landings on the ice-and I didn't even get motion sick. People joined us along the way. Paul, the doctor she loves who breaks up the romance because he lost his first wife and thinks because Kate is a pilot, he'll lose her. Michael, her friend who loves her fiercely and wants to marry her. Lisa, who seems a perfect match for Paul. Then there's her irritable boss, and someone I hope we don't meet who is putting water in her fuel tank. This is the third book in Bonnie Leon's Alaskan series. The author is an accomplished novelist and Wings of Promise keeps you reading as you discover Alaska, danger and romance with Kate. I wondered how the novelist was able to put us in the airplane with Kate, and go through so many intricate flying maneuvers without being a pilot herself. Turns out one of Alaska's flying champions, Gayle Ranney helped make the scenes in the book possible. My applause to them both. I loved the journey.

Wings of a Promise, the second book in the Alaskan Skies series is a winner from cover to cover, filled with twists and turns I didn't expect. The story of Kate Evans continues where the first book left off. Kate is still delivering mail, but she now flies doctor Paul Anderson around so that he can practice medicine. Kate loves being with Paul and working by his side, but it's extra tiring since she's also the pilot. Meanwhile, Mike Conlin, her best friend helps her out of a pickle when her nemesis buys the airport and becomes her new employer. Mike and Kate grow close, but things are complicated. The characters in this story are dynamic and feel real. I can't wait to see what happens in the next book. If you haven't read book one in the series, don't worry, you'll still be able to understand book two. Anyone who enjoys adventure and unexpected plot twists will be pleased with the latest addition to this series.

Night settled. Deep in the forest there was a nest and in that nest was a young cat, barely 6 moons old, shivering in excitement. Her wings buzzed as her dreams reflecting one thing - swooping through the sky, her skymates beside her. Turning over she crushed the wing of her brother. Her brother muttered something. The shecat's eyes popped open, then closed. Happy dreams were with her. She never thought the next day would change her life forever. <p> On the same night, another young shecat- a bit older, without wings, dreamed in her den beside her clanmates. Her dreams were different, in her dreams she saw a winged cat, her, and an evil cat. She turned over, muttering. Little did she know her life would also be changed tomorrow. <p> Still on the same night, another cat, a tom, nonwinged, stood on a rock, his eyes glowing orange in the night. His peircing gaze reflected the moon shining off the water. This cat could not sleep. To him, fools needed sleep. Flicking his tail, the tom lept off the rock in a single bound. The only traces of hin afterward were his pawprints. <p> (Hope you liked it! I did this for fun, please tell me if I should continue!) ~ &sect<_>tars & star Above

Wings of Promise is the 2nd book in this series. I've read the first one and loved it. Wings doesn't disappoint. It's set in the 1930's when a woman was expected to be a wife and mother--not an Alaskan pilot flying a doctor to small villages. This book has heartache, romance, loss and restoration. Great read.
