Book Review : In the Shadow of Denali

I am so excited to share another amazing book with you!!  This is a fiction story that takes place in the early 1900’s.



In the Shadow of Denali is a book about a young man finding himself after his father dies while hiking Denali.  Not only does the son, Allan Brennan find himself but he also finds his Lord in his search.

The main characters are Cassidy and her father John Ivanoff who are locals to Alaska, and who love where they live.  They work at a hotel at the base of Denali and serve the people traveling to Alaska while they are in that area.  Cassidy is an. amazing young woman with tremendous joy in her heart despite some tough parts of her life.  John is an amazing man of faith and a wonderful loving father.

I loved the imagery that was created in my mind as I read this book.  Not only did I see Alaska in my mind, but I felt connected to Allan, Cassidy and her father John.  This is the first book in a series and I will certainly be reading the next ones.  I thoroughly enjoyed this book and this author and look forward to more books by her in the future!!

NOTE : I received a copy of In the Shadow of Denali at no cost.

Their Future Depends on Unlocking the Secrets the Mountain Holds From the Past

Cassidy Ivanoff and her father, John, work at the new and prestigious Curry Hotel near the foot of Mount McKinley–Denali as it’s still called by the natives. John is the wilderness and exploration guide for the wealthy tourists while Cassidy works in the kitchen as Cook’s assistant. The entire staff buzzes with excitement during the busy days preparing for the President’s imminent visit. His historic trip to dedicate the new national park on his way to driving in the golden spike to officially complete the Alaska Railroad will be the beginning of a new era for all of them and place The Curry at the heart of Alaska.

Allan Brennan travels to the Curry Hotel to be an apprentice to the seasoned Alaska mountain guide, with hopes of discovering the truth about his father’s death on the mountain years earlier. His father’s business partner blames the guide for Henry Brennan’s untimely death, but Allan cannot be at peace until he knows for sure. He finds an unlikely ally in Cassidy, and as the two begin to look into the mystery, they suddenly find that things are much less clear, and much more dangerous, than either could ever imagine.
