Publisher's Summary

Lives depend on two women when a train derails high in the remote Alps, but an unforgiving mountain, avalanches, crevasses, and other perils stand between them and safety. Associated Press reporter Hudson Mead is an extreme skiing enthusiast who has covered war zones and natural disasters during her long and distinguished career, but nothing could have prepared her for the challenges she'll face when the snow train she's riding is decimated by a massive avalanche.
Librarian Steffi Graham, on her first trip abroad, is anxious to hone her rock-climbing skills in a new and unfamiliar terrain of ice and snow. She gets much more than she bargained for when her talents put her on the team that goes for help. As the two strangers struggle to reach civilization, they must compromise and learn to trust each other, a task that may be nearly as difficult as the journey itself.

This book will not disappoint.

Would you listen to Taken By Storm again? Why?

This book was unbelievably well written, and the characters so real. I felt like I was with them every step of the way. It brought out so many emotions. I was on the edge of my seat time and time again. I was hooked from the first chapter, and couldn't put the book down once I started it. The narration was also excellent. Coleen Marlo didn't just narrate, she performed and beautifully.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Taken By Storm?

I really like the part when Anna was "taking care of" JT after his injury. I kept thinking, yes there is justice, as I cheered her on.

Which character – as performed by Coleen Marlo – was your favorite?

I especially like Stephie as performed by Coleen Marlo. You could see her transformation from a shy and somewhat timid individual, to someone willing to take daring chances for another.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

One particular thing that moved me, was how many of the trapped people stepped up to the plate and exhibited kindness and worked for the common good.

Any additional comments?

I've never read anything by Kim Baldwin before. She's great, and I intend to rectify this problem in the very near future.

Wonderful story and great narration!!

This book literally kept me on the edge of my seat. I laughed, I cried, I felt like my stomach was dropping; I was there with Steffi and Hudson. Ms. Marlo did an incredible job brining the entire book to life and Ms. Baldwin's attention to detail made me feel like I was dangling on the edge of a mountain as well. Thoroughly enjoyed listening to this story. Well worth it!!!
