“Turbulence” is a fairly short novel; however the author manages to cram quite a bit of content in between its covers. Not only does heroine Kennedy Stern find herself once again in the midst of deep trouble but also manages to have some deep spiritual conversations that have profound effects on her life and on others.

Situations within the plot are very believable and are so current the reader could hear about something similar in tomorrow’s news. Portrayal of different characters was on point, especially some of the attitudes toward others that reeked of racial profiling. I also loved the little granny lady who spent so much time with Kennedy. I had to wonder if she was one of those “angel unaware” encounters.

A fun read, “Turbulence” held my interest until the very end. I think I read it in one sitting. My only complaint is that it ended much too quickly.

I voluntarily reviewed a digital copy of this book that was provided by the author. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.

Facing doubts and terror at forty thousand feet.

It’s been another grueling semester at Harvard, and Kennedy can hardly wait to take a break from her premed studies for some much-needed rest and relaxation at her roommate’s homestead in rural Alaska.

Unfortunately, Kennedy’s great arctic adventure might come to a crashing halt before it ever begins.
