Thanks to netgalley for a copy of this book to review.
I loved this book I think this is one of Mary's best so far. The story is set in the Grand Canyon and when reading the book it took me back to when I visited Wiamea Canyon in Hawaii. The story starts with Shannon in trouble and Gabe comes across her. The adventure starts right from the first sentence and continues throughout the book. I also love the secondary characters in this book as they really make the book. Gabe is the youngest in the family and his brothers tend to baby him and think he is incapable of making his own decisions regarding what he will do with his life. We see some of these struggles in the book also. Shannon is an only child who is determined to prove her father's discoveries were real and not just wishful thinking. Seeing the stories blend together and grow was interesting. The back drop to this story is the Grand Canyon and Mary describes it in a way that makes me want to visit it and see what the characters saw. Excellent read.
