I was excited to read The Way of the Brave by Susan May Warren but… this book was not for me.
The story was good. The characters interesting. Lots of tension. Great romance. The writing was even better! So, why wasn’t this book a favorite for me?
Both characters are mountain climbers and the story revolves around mountain climbing. Susan May Warren does an amazing job of creating word pictures that got me right up on that mountain with them. And that’s the problem. I’m not an outdoorsy-type person. I have absolutely no interest in mountain climbing, whether it be on a mountain or in my armchair reading. So unfortunately, this wasn’t a book that I particularly enjoyed but… if you’re more adventurous than me, it might be just the book you’re looking for. And it won’t stop me from reading another Susan May Warren book–she’s an awesome writer.
