    35 A adventure story a survival story and a story about two very strong women Pru is raising a teenage son alone is in charge of maintaining the integrity of archeological sites but often is also called in for search and rescue Amy hunting with two men is a bow and arrow hunter going out alone to being down an elk She doesn't returnWe learn the woman's back stories as they take turns relating their stories I admit to having a hard time in the beginning of this book with the character of Amy Yes I was judgmental something I am working to overcome Part of my next year's challenge being less judgmental when reading fictional books Slowly though I came to realize she is flawed with due cause events going back to her childhood And boy did I admire her survival skills While reading we do not know if she will make it or not the two narrations do not sync in time and this proved very suspenseful The mountains and the wilderness described is just beautifulI ended up liking this book very much Finely written we get to know the main characters pretty well get into their heads see why they ended up where they did I know one thing if are power grid is ever hacked someone like Amy would be my choice of companion ARC from publisher

    DecisionsWe all make them every second of the day But do we honestly weigh the impact upon those we love? Like the pebble thrown carelessly into the pondthe concentric circles seem to go on foreverAmy Ray Latour ventures out on an elk hunt during the last weekend of the season with two male hunting companions Colorado wilds are just the place for an avid bow hunter and Amy is not going to lose a second of opportunity In the wee hours of the morning Amy takes out on her own well before her hunting buddies have even stirred Her uick decisions and preparations may come back to haunt herWhen Amy fails to show up at the camp site Pru Hathaway and her dog are called in for the search Pru is an archaeological law enforcement ranger who is certified in search and rescue operations with her well trained dog Kona The hunt for Amy begins and every resource is being employedNow hear me out This is not just a hunters only kind of read You will come to know the backstory on both Amy and Pru Two completely different women with two completely different lifestyles But it's back to those decisions once again It's the impact of the road not taken or perhaps the impact of the actual road tread upon in life What unravels in the telling of this tale will hold you steady and engaged but it will also find you breathing harder and shaking your head in frustration at times It's all on the givingreceiving side of life Yes those decisionsIn truth I found myself exasperated with Amy at times as a fellow hiker and outdoors person Choices once again went out the window with both women And yet the writing is superb Les Becuets infuses the storyline with her knowledge and her research The words flow with emotions and the heavy human element visits us time and time again Zip through technical jargon if you must but don't lose what is at the core herepainful human transgressionsI was locked into this book I walked both sides of the street in loving and disliking the main characters all at the same time Now that is the key feature of a very talented author Keep me engaged in the story and send my emotional scale registering highs and lows You sold me Diane Les Becuets I am so awaiting your next offering

    Women represent the fastest growing demographic among North America's bow hunters make room guys the fairer sex is joining ranksIn this adventurous Tour de Force novel Amy Raye Latour and Pru Hathaway are both fleeting champions in the wilderness Both women are driven with purpose with an endurance to go beyond their limitationsphysically mentally emotionally and spiritually The wilderness becomes dangerous but the surroundings the landscape in its vastness alone is absolutely breathtaking At times I felt my own feet touching the earth under my feet in those woods Amy Raye is the bow and arrow hunter who is missing Her husband and two young children are back home We learn early hints of problems in their marriage yet the reader has the sense that her husband fully supports his wife's hunting passion even though he himself can't stand any type of violence or guns in the house of any kind Before Amy goes missingwe are immediately wondering 'what's up' with she and another man Kenny one of two of the other male hunters she is with Their relationship is not 100% clear but it doesn't sound like it's one that supports a thriving happy marriage with her husbandI didn't want to jump to conclusions too uickly The woman is missing freezing cold and hungry Pru works for the Bureau of Land Management as an archaeological law enforcement ranger with the only certified search and rescue dog Kona in the county She lives with her teenage son Early in the story soon after Amy Raye is missing Pru has a flashback memory that had me on the edge of my seat a memory involving her son I knew at 'this' moment I was in for a spine tingling ride because we hadn't even started with the haunting current conditions in the present The blending of past memories for 'both' women while dealing with their current situations brings their vulnerability to the surface We get deep into their psyches both having suffered traumatic events Deeper into the wilderness riveting suspense awareness arises for both Pru and Amy Raye that demonstrates their essential sense of truth and self Their perseverance under extraordinary conditions brings hope and healing Thank You to Berkley Publishing Netgalley and especially to the author Diane Les BecuetsAwesome Book

    This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life45 StarsI thought that this was a great book I love a good survival story so the blurb really caught my attention This book was most certainly a survival story but it was so much than that The characters made this story come alive I kept the pages turning because I had to know what was going to happen next I was glued to the book from the time I started reading until I had reached the last pageThis book is told from two alternating points of view Amy Raye is on a hunting trip with a couple of friends She is hoping to get an elk before the trip is over so she goes out early in the morning to do just that Pru is a ranger in the area and spends a lot of her days checking on hunters and helping with search and rescue when needed Each of these woman has their own story to tell and each voice was distinctive and eually interesting So many times when a book is written in alternating point of views I find that I really prefer one of the perspectives much than the other Not so with this book I felt the need to learn everything about each of these womenThe descriptions in the book were excellent and really pulled me into the story I felt that I was right there with Amy Raye when she was hunting the elk I have never been to Colorado wilderness but I felt like I was there while reading this book The terrain would have been very difficult to find someone who is lost and even harder to find your way out The determination of both Pru and Amy Raye really showed on the page Amy Raye refused to give up and did some things I couldn't imagine in her uest to survive Pru wouldn't stop looking and felt the need to find out what had happened to Amy RayeThe writing in this book was excellent I absolutely loved how the two women's back stories were woven into the book I grew to understand each of them a little better with every chapter The things in both of their lives that had led them to be in that Colorado wilderness together were always interesting and at times heartbreaking The pacing of the book was nearly perfect There were no slow points in the book Everything we need to know was shared at precisely the perfect time to keep my interest peaked I would highly recommend this book to others This is the first time that I have read anything by Diane Les Becuets but I definitely plan read of her work I received an advance reader edition of this book from Penguin Group Berkley via First to Read for the purpose of providing an honest reviewInitial ThoughtsFirst book of 2016 and you know whatit was a good one I love a good survival story and this book had that but it had so much The characters in this story were amazing and just made the story come alive I honestly could not put this one down

    Absolutely riveting story of two woman one Amy Raye Latour who gets lost in the Colorado wilderness as she tracks an elk she wounded while hunting and two Pru Hathaway a ranger who sets out to find Amy Raye Both women have compelling histories that are interwoven with the search and rescue narrative I think though the real star of this book is nature itself Les Becuets is a wonderful writer and I was completely engrossed by the beauty and sheer savagery of the mountains and forests of Colorado in winterThis is an extremely suspenseful and harrowing read most definitely not a book you put down and walk away from Pick a weekend where you have some time to devote to reading and get ready for a thrill ride Never once will you be sure what is going to happen Very well done loved it


  8. says:

    I truly enjoyed this uniue novel by Diane Les Becuets featuring two women Amy Ray Latour a bow hunter in pursuit of elk; and Pru Hathaway the search and rescue ranger who with her dog Kona searches for Amy when she disappears during a camping tripThe novel is told in alternating chapters from both Amy and Pru's point of view and also goes back in forth in time so the reader learns about each woman's childhood young adult life and current situation While at the most literal level Amy is lost and Pru seeks her the reader learns that in the metaphorical sense each of the women is both lost and seeking Both characters have a realistic depth to them and Les Becuets gives us a novel that feels both character driven with the suspense of wanting to know how the plot will endI mention the two women as main characters but Les Becuets beautifully draws a third character worth mentioning the landscape Nature plays an important role in the story and the author's vibrant description of the setting and Amy and Pru's love of nature is thoroughly enjoyableThank you to NetGalley and Berkley for a galley of this book in exchange for an honest review

    The first part of this book was a bit slow and tedious to me but I am so glad I stuck with it because the 2nd half was very good It is a book about two women who come from a rustic way of life hunting hiking spending time in the woods working with horses I can't imagine being out in the woods and having to care for myself seriously I can not imagine that for a moment I don't camp not even glam camping Amy who is married with 2 step children goes hunting with two of her male friends and gets away from them and gets stranded in the wilderness Through the story we hear about her past and how she came to this place in her life No one gets off easy do theyRanger Pru is use to being in the wilderness and along with her dog Kona who is a search and rescue dog they begin to search for Amy The books tells a lot about how people once they are lost operate in the wilderness and how they lose their direction what is north what is south especially when there are no see able sunrises and sunsets We also hear how Pru and her son came to this place in their livesIt was interesting reading about two women so very different from myself with such different interest and lifestyles I got a glimpse into their lives that I wouldn't have had experienced had I not read this book This books was given to me by Net Galley for an honest review
