Although I've lately been getting frustrated with some of Peterson's books, I have found that her writing improves when working beside Kimberley Woodhouse. Together, these two women have published some great books, and I can happily say that In the Shadow of Denali is one I don't regret having on my personal bookshelf.
Set at the opening of the Curry Hotel at the base of Denali (Mt. McKinley), In the Shadow of Denali focuses on the daughter of a half-native-Alaskan travel guide and the son of a man who died on a fateful trip up Denali. The lives of both are intertwined more than they realize, and they soon find that only by surrendering their hopes and fears to the Lord can they ever find peace. In the midst of a busy Alaskan summer, the mystery surrounding one man's death will change the balance of many lives.
With just a touch of mystery (even if the reader knows the answers, it is interesting to watch the characters look for the same), a gentle romance, and lush descriptions of scenery, this novel was interesting and moving. I enjoyed the variety of characters and the hints at what comes next in the series. While the book is nothing phenomenal, it is an enjoyable read for historical Christian romance fans.

Readers of this book should know that it is a Christian book. I was looking for an action packed book about climbing Denali and the history of Alaska. While there is a little of that, its more about characters trying to convert others into acting Christian. Disappointed.

This was not the exciting Alaskan adventure I was hoping for. In fact, it was very blasé. Although I occasionally read Christian fiction and enjoy a wholesome story, this book was a bit heavy handed in that aspect. The story wasn't totally terrible, just not a lot of depth to it. Very predictable and written in simplistic language, I would consider this "fluff" when you are looking for a simple read.
