Overview

Now a major motion picture starring Kate Winslet and Idris Elba. An atmospheric, suspenseful and gripping story of two people finding love while fighting to survive.
 
When a blizzard strands them in Salt Lake City, two strangers agree to charter a plane together, hoping to return home; Ben Payne is a gifted surgeon returning from a conference, and Ashley Knox, a magazine writer, is en route to her wedding. But when unthinkable tragedy strikes, the pair find themselves stranded in Utah’s most remote wilderness in the dead of winter, badly injured and miles from civilization. Without food or shelter, and only Ben’s mountain climbing gear to protect themselves, Ashley and Ben’s chances for survival look bleak, but their reliance on each other sparks an immediate connection, which soon evolves into something more.
 
Days in the mountains become weeks, as their hope for rescue dwindles. How will they make it out of the wilderness and if they do, how will this experience change them forever? Heart-wrenching and unputdownable, The Mountain Between Us will reaffirm your belief in the power of love to sustain us.

This is my first book from this author. I most surely will read several more of them. It was a sad story, but at the same an inspiring story of human survival and a human's will to live. I read this book in one sitting - it's that good.

I have read all previous Charles Martin books and loved this one just as much, if not more, It is so nice to find an author who writes heartwarming, sometimes sad stories without the violence and profanity that is so prevalent in books today, Well done Mr. Martin!

This book is one of the best I have read in a LONG time! This author takes you on this journey and you feel as if you are there with the characters. The research he did for this book is remarkable. At the end of the story I just cried for all concerned. What a lovely book to read. You HAVE to turn the page to see what happens. This author is now on my favorite author list. I will keep an eye on new books of his to come.

This story of survival was very well written and kept me interested in how they were going to make it. This would be an enjoyable "beach" read for the summer.

I don't think you can go wrong by choosing this book. I can't wait until this one is made into a movie. Thank you very much, Mr. Martin, for an excellent story. I know that you won't be disappointed if you choose to read this book.

I love the way Charles Martin spins a story. He draws me into his world with rich descriptions and deep characters. It is a story of survival in nature, but also about love and forgiveness.

This is one of the BEST books I've read in a long, long time. I have completely fell in love with all of Charles Martin's books. He takes you in to each and every action along with all the feelings that go with it. The love is deep beyond measure and while in this book you will feel it all. This is one book you will not want to lay down. I'm so thankful to my friend for recommending Charles Martin's books to me. llkph Columbia, TN

"The Mountain Between Us" touched my heart. The main characters have both emotional issues and tough physical conditions to deal with and do so with a strength of character and innate goodness. I loved the story-within-a-story. It shows that hope and love can conquer anything. I was so impressed and emotionally touched by this book that I've given it as a gift many times and highly recommend it. I recommended this for our book club discussions. I got hooked on Charles Martin's writing after reading "Chasing Fireflies" for our book club (which I also highly recommend along with "Wrapped in Rain"). Charles Martin is a fabulous writer - I have all of his books and recommend them to everyone. His books deal with tough issues and life situations with truth and humor and he shows that with faith, hope and love, most things can be conquered. I also recommend Charles Martin's latest book "Thunder and Rain."

I am normally a voracious reader but haven't picked up a book in a while. I am job hunting so that pretty much consumes all my waking hours. Thank goodness though I picked up this book and began reading. It gave me the opportunity to escape from the trials and tribulations of my day. And escape I did to the snowy, cold 1.3 million acres of Utah's national park wilderness. A great read but I have to say, I was blown away by the ending. I never saw it coming. I have read one other book of Charles Martin's, "Where the River Ends". It too was a love story set in nature. I plan on reading all of his books starting with his latest "Thunder and Rain".

Usually I enjoy DeMille, Baldacci, Child, Coben,and even some end of the world type books such as "One Second After". I read this 'category' for a change - to go to a place where I feel involved. Charles Martin is a new discovery, and a wonderful one. He writes as well as Sparks, who I also enjoy. I am on the road to reading all his previous books and if I enjoy them half as much as this that will still be good! Grab it, sink into a chair, and prepare for a wonderful journey.

Charles Martin's newest release, The Mountain Between Us, takes readers on a riveting, emotional journey as they follow the story of two strangers who are united in the fight for survival when their chartered plane crashes. Both Ashley and Ben are committed professionals trying to get home to their families. Ashley, a writer from Atlanta, is just days away from her wedding. Ben, a successful orthopedic surgeon, is anxious to return home to his wife and children in Florida. When their commercial flight is cancelled due to perilous weather, Ben decides to charter a private plane. At the last minute, in an attempt to get Ashley home in time for her wedding, Ben makes Ashley an offer she can't refuse - a seat on his private flight. Even though the plane isn't technically large enough for two passengers, they decide to make it work and head out into the treacherous weather. Grover, their grizzled maverick pilot, has years of experience and over 20,000 hours of flight time. He is confident he can beat the storm and plans to fly "low and slow". Because of the low flight altitude, Grover is not required to file a flight plan. Not long into the turbulent flight, Grover has a heart attack and the plane crashes in the High Uintas Wilderness. As the passengers come to, Ben, Ashley and Grover's dog Tank, are the only crash survivors. With life threatening injuries and deadly freezing temperatures, Ben and Ashley find themselves facing a seemingly hopeless situation with challenges they aren't sure they can overcome. Using his wilderness survival skills in combination with his medical knowledge, Ben manages to set Ashley's broken leg and get them through the night, even though he is badly injured himself. As one day overlaps the next, Ben faces the grim task of giving Grover a proper burial, foraging for food and trying to stay warm all while the realization that they may never be rescued settles in. I found myself reading long after my eyes were tired to see what would happen next. This story is full of suspense and adventure! Each time I thought I knew what was going to happen, the author managed to surprise me and keep me turning pages faster and faster! This story also builds a deep emotional anticipation as Ben's longing for his wife and children play out. He's a man who has made some mistakes and wishes more than anything he could go back and erase them. Ashley learns just how deeply Ben loves his wife as she overhears messages which he records into a handheld recorder. His commitment and love for his wife cause Ashley to question her marriage plans. Is she marrying the right man? Is she settling because she's tired of waiting for her soul mate who may not even exist? Although I started this book thinking it was going to be predictable, I must say that Martin succeeded in surprising me, which made it well worth reading. Charles Martin is a gifted writer who commands his reader's attention from the very first page and then keeps the momentum going as the story builds. As a fan of Charles Martin's books, I highly recommend him. Those who read and enjoy Nicholas Sparks most assuredly will see many similarities in the writing styles of Sparks and Martin - sometimes eerily similar!

I rate Charles Martin among the greatest Southern writers of fiction ever. I cannot recommend his books highly enough, and with these last two books (including The Mountain Between Us) he has outdone himself. If you are looking for a meaningful, clean, encouraging, uplifting but intelligent summer read, this is it!!! And if you haven't read his other books, you absolutely MUST!!!!

Charles Martin changed the course of the lives of two people in this edge-of-your-seat novel! Survival is the name of the game, and the challenges are harrowing. There is nothing predictable about this story of relationships and the quest to survive in the worst possible situations. Two people learn how to encourage one another as they fight for their very lives after their plane crashes in the middle of a mountain range. Both Ben and Ashley learn much about themselves as they brave the storms of life in no man's land. This is a fantastic read!
