Dive into the breathtaking Turbulent Skies series today. Just be careful … you may not be able to read just one!
In this short story, you will find enough light reading to fill an hour or two. It was a refreshing change of pace.
Willow Winters is an organic hipee-type girl with naturally dyed blue hair. I enjoyed reading about her idyllic life in Alaska before she went to school at Harvard. Now she tells the riveting tale of her first trip back home.
The character goes on to tell her story in a meandering way. I enjoyed this way of storytelling as it seemed characteristic of Willow’s personality. My boys did not appreciate it as much. I occasionally listen to Siri read an ebook aloud. This story seemed to capture my son’s interest somewhat but he became impatient with the randomness. I rather sympathize with the character as I tend to share idea connections I’ve made when storytelling as well.
Some of what Willow philosophizes on is rather important. The inhumanity of human trafficking is a topic that has been addressed in several other novels I’ve reviewed. I disagree though with the suggestion that violence is the only way to get government officials to listen. I’ve seen good come from community lead efforts to change government politics. It does take a lot of effort.
I was warmed as I read of an incredible act of kindness and bravery. This and other unexpected scenes throughout this novella kept my interest.
You have felt love for others…even someone who just came into your life, a stranger. That feeling of love is a gift from God. The scriptures call it “charity”.

More from Alana
I’m excited to share my new Turbulent Skies Christian Thriller novella series with all of you! The inspiration behind this series came when I was taking a flight a few years ago … and indulging in one of my favorite past times – people watching! As I looked at the various passengers around me, I started to wonder about their lives … and it was from that line of thinking this novella series was born!
I first wrote a book about a terrifying experience on board an airplane years earlier, (Turbulence, Book #5 in the Kennedy Stern series) and because many members of my amazing Readers’ Club had been asking me to write a book featuring Willow, one of their favorite characters from the Kennedy Stern series, it seemed fitting that Willow gets to be the star in the first of these novellas.
Terror in the Skies is Willow’s story. She’s a chic Alaskan college student, a free spirit who finds herself sharing a dorm room with a conservative Christian missionary kid. Willow first makes her appearance in the Kennedy Stern Christian suspense series, meaning that over a hundred thousand readers have met her!
I can’t tell you too much about this life-of-the-party aspiring actress (mostly because I don’t want to spoil anything for you if you happen to still be making your way through the Kennedy Stern books). But I can tell you she is the first main character in this six-book novella series that helps answer the question: “Who are you really sitting next to hundreds of feet up in the air?”
Maybe, like me, after reading this series, you’ll never look at your fellow passengers the same way!
