Adirondacks Artemis by D.L. Luke

Author D.L. Luke vividly portrays the intriguing tale of one of life’s greatest fears-being lost in the wilderness. In Adirondacks, Artemis faces not only her present fears but fears for the future with only her dog and past experiences to guide her through her lonely introspection, her strengths, and weaknesses. Artemis and her dog are left deserted and alone with winter approaching, in the Adirondacks, with only a prayer and a hope for survival. Real and imaginary fears cloud Artemis’s judgment, but not her desire to reach the county road and safety.

My Review

3 stars

Artemis had a fight with her boyfriend the night before and wakes up to find that he left her in the woods. Now, with the help of her dog Jesse and her own skills she has to get out of the forest.

This story is touching. We find Artemis alone after her drunken boyfriend and she got in a fight the night before. The problem is he is the one that knew this spot that they camped at and Artemis has to try and remember the way out. But along the way she remembers the different things that have shaped her life.

This is a journey of growth and reflection. And as Artemis struggles to get out of the woods she struggles with her life.

I received Adirondacks Artemis from Sage’s Blog Tour for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
