GoodReads Synopsis: From the internationally best-selling author of The Simple Wild comes the continuation of a woman’s journey to Alaska and a life she never imagined for herself.
Calla Fletcher returns to Toronto a different person, struggling to find direction and still very much in love with the rugged bush pilot she left behind. When Jonah arrives on her doorstep with a proposition she can’t dismiss, she takes the leap and rushes back to Alaska to begin their exciting future together.
But Calla soon learns that even the best intentions can lead to broken promises, and that compromise comes with a hefty price—a log cabin in interior rural Alaska that feels as isolating as the western tundra.
With Jonah gone more than he’s home, one neighbor who insists on transforming her into a true Alaskan, and another who seems more likely to shoot her than come to her aid, Calla grapples with forging her own path. In a world with roaming wildlife that has her constantly watching over her shoulder and harsh conditions that stretch far beyond the cold, dark, winter months, just stepping outside her front door can be daunting.
This is not the future Calla had in mind, leaving her to fear that perhaps she is doomed to follow in her mother’s fleeing footsteps after all.
Review: Wild At Heart is the much anticipated sequel of The Simple Wild. Heads up that this book is literally a continuation of The Simple Wild and doesn’t read as a stand-alone book. Personally I found Wild At Heart not to be as great as The Simple Wild. The storyline seemed interesting, however, the writing style didn’t seem to captivate me as much as The Simple Wild. The first half of the book is a bit mundane about menial items. There seemed to be a lot of repetitiveness in the beginning. There were also a couple of times I was ready to DNF as Calla and Jonah’s relationship fell into this repetitive pattern. I ended up skimming through the rest of the book even though the second half picked up the pace a bit. It was great that new side characters were introduced and the ones from the first book reappeared as well. Overall, I wouldn’t recommend reading this sequel.
