Description

City girl Calla Fletcher attempts to reconnect with her estranged father, and unwittingly finds herself torn between her desire to return to the bustle of Toronto and a budding relationship with a rugged Alaskan pilot in this masterful new romance from acclaimed author K.A. Tucker.

Calla Fletcher was two when her mother took her and fled the Alaskan wild, unable to handle the isolation of the extreme, rural lifestyle, leaving behind Calla’s father, Wren Fletcher, in the process. Calla never looked back, and at 26, a busy life in Toronto is all she knows. But when her father reaches out to inform her that his days are numbered, Calla knows that it’s time to make the long trip back to the remote frontier town where she was born.

She braves the roaming wildlife, the odd daylight hours, the exorbitant prices, and even the occasional - dear God - outhouse, all for the chance to connect with her father: a man who, despite his many faults, she can’t help but care for. While she struggles to adjust to this new subarctic environment, Jonah - the quiet, brooding, and proud Alaskan pilot who keeps her father’s charter plane company operational - can’t imagine calling anywhere else home. And he’s clearly waiting with one hand on the throttle to fly this city girl back to where she belongs, convinced that she’s too pampered to handle the wild.

Jonah is probably right, but Calla is determined to prove him wrong. As time passes, she unexpectedly finds herself forming a bond with the burly pilot. As his undercurrent of disapproval dwindles, it’s replaced by friendship - or perhaps something deeper? But Calla is not in Alaska to stay and Jonah will never leave. It would be foolish of her to kindle a romance, to take the same path her parents tried - and failed at - years ago.

It’s a simple truth that turns out to be not so simple after all.

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 5 STARS 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

This book.... yeah I'm just a ball of emotions right now! First, I have a love for Alaskan settings in books so even though KA Tucker is a MUST read author for me, I would have grabbed this up because of the setting alone.
This book was about so many things for me. The strained or nonexistent relationship between a father and a daughter, fixing things before it's too late, true love (maybe even soul-mates) and not making the same mistakes your parents did. All of these things are true, beautiful and heart-breaking in this story. I loved the way this book made me feel from sorrow, to anger, to love and to loss. Besides all the feels, this book had amazing banter between two of the main characters which had me smiling a lot while listening! The ending made my heart soar and there is nothing better to me than when characters figure things out and do what needs to be done no matter the consequences or fear that may arise! Loved this book <3

The narration was perfect! Love all her work and she was a great choice for this book!

I delighted in every moment

Sometimes it can be hard to express exactly how much we enjoyed a book. I could compare my experience listening to The Simple Wild to food (that bacon maple donut I had this morning) or I could compare it to a feeling (toes in the grass, fresh mountain air, warm campfires on damp nights) or I could compare it to another book, even (Northern Lights by Nora Roberts without the murder?). But none of it would really QUITE capture what I’m trying to say: that I loved all that this book was—all that I felt while listening to it (thank you Rebekkah Ross)—and I hope other people will feel the same way.

The good, the bad, and THE YETI.

What a well rounded, complete story. I was not expecting all of the emotions that were brought on by KA Tucker but I’m glad they came either way. Every character brought something to this story and I felt like I could picture rural Alaska vividly. The details provided didn’t have me second guessing the settings or way of life at all. Calla & Jonah were so perfect in such a honest and real way that you couldn’t help but root for them. And Wren and Simon those guys broke my heart, all in all this is a must read/listen. (Trust me I’ve done both already!)

Add this to you reread often list

This book is so moving. Women’s fic meets contemporary romance and Tucker hits it out of the park. The banter is great, the emotions are real, the love is swoon worthy

Wonderful Story - A Must Read

This was my first novel from this author, it won't be my last. I absolutely went on a journey with the characters in this book. Getting a peek into the lives of people who choose to live in remote areas of the world was eye opening and beautiful. The story of this fractured family is so poignant. The choices they make to love and forgive, hold on and let go had me crying in my kitchen as I listened while making supper tonight. There are love stories galore in this book, but the story of Cala and Jonah was beautiful. The themes in this book have me thinking and I love when a book gives you that gift. This read was worth the credit, in fact I would gladly have paid 2 credits.

You can never go wrong with KA

I know this book came out last summer. It took me forever to start because KA Tucker usually leaves me in a book funk wanting another one of her books as soon as I’m done with the newest.
My daughter fell in love with KA’s writing after I bought her The Simple Wild and she kept hounding me to read it. I finally did and OMG! Why did I wait so long to start this!? Calla and Jonah are #goals! I loved them so much. I also cried my eyes out with with Calla’s relationship with Wren. I had all the feels.
This book deserves 10 stars! I loved it from the very first chapter.

Eh

So this was kind of a miss for me. I am frankly really surprised by all the glowing reviews. I felt like the character development was really lacking and the storyline just did not hold my interest. I’m not sure if it was the story or the narrator, but it felt completely void of emotion...which is strange, given the topic could be quite emotional. I barely got through it and found that I was forcing myself to finish, just to say I finished it.

My favorite KA Tucker book!

I LOVED this book. I thought the characters were well developed and there was plenty of comedy to balance the serious bits of the book. I loved the development of the characters and their relationships with one another. It also made me really want to visit Alaska!

What You Need

Every once in a while you stumble on a romance that takes you by the hand and leads you into a vivid, relatable story. You fall in love, your experience heartbreak, and you never want to leave the story line.
Would listen again , and would recommend.

Ein super schönes, emotionales Buch.

Ein wunderbares Buch über Liebe, Schuld und Vergebung.
Sehr flüssig und feinfühlig geschrieben.
Leider hat Rebekkah Ross, die Vorleserin, irgendein Akzent (ich weiß nicht was für einen da ich kein native speaker bin) der mich auf Dauer extrem genervt hat.
Sie verschluckt die 'g's am Ende von Wörter die auf 'ing' enden, wobei sie das 'i' extrem in die Länge zieht.
Da klingt zB. das Wort 'saying' wie 'sayiiin' oder 'something' wie 'somethiiin' . Und das macht sie bei allen 'ing' Wörtern. Sehr unangenehm zum zuhören.
