This is the first book in a three book series. In this book, Kate Collier has arrived in a small town in Brazil to hire a guide to find her brother who's been presumed dead. He's her twin brother and her (almost) her only living relative, and she loves him very much. That's the only thing that gives her the strength to trek through the wild Amazon jungle!
A. C. Slater is fighting his own demons. He's turned his back on God after tragic events in his life. But Kate's sweet ways and her strong faith start chipping away at his heart of stone. His mission is to get her through the Amazon to her brother safely. Then he can get back to his own life!
The adventure was great! I loved all the descriptions as the characters trek through the rain forest. I loved the development of the relationship between Slater and Kate. The romance was filled with so much tension - made for a great read!
The only thing I didn't like was the abruptness a few scenes changed. I understand this was limited in words and that's probably why. But it bothered me how they were in the wilds of the rain forest one moment, then back in town the nest. Then they went from town to Dallas...I wanted to see the "in between" stuff...
