The Mountain Between Us by Charles Martin
I grew up reading Walt Morey books, so I love a good survival story! Dr. Ben Payne is headed home from a medical conference when his flight is canceled due to poor weather conditions. He is desperate to get back home to his wife, so he finds a private pilot who is willing to chance the weather. He invites along Ashley, whom he has just met, because she is desperate to get home for her wedding. The pilot dies, the plane crash lands in a very remote part of Utah, and Ben and Ashley are left to tend to their injuries and to survive on their own.
This is an absolutely marvelous story of survival, determination, love, and the triumph of the human spirit. It also speaks highly of the marriage relationship and how it should be cherished. I highly recommend this book! This book would be appropriate for high school ages on up.
