HASH(0x96e1a618) out of 5 stars A Stunning Debut! 24 April 2014
By Heather Campbell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Weaver's book, Point of Direction, had me in its clutches from page one!
It quickly became an obsession, causing me to neglect most things until it was finished.
The characters, Anna and Kyle, were so full of heart and depth that they felt like personal friends. I was struck by the complexity of their lives as individuals, their personal inner and outer journeys, and of the challenge it was to weave their histories together in the present tense. (Who can't relate to that?)
Weaver does a masterful job writing about the subtleties of relationship--so much of the conversation goes on beneath the words.
Also, I particularly enjoyed the Alaskan landscape, so well illustrated. And the descriptions of the hands-on survival skills they both needed to stay alive were remarkable. (Anna was such a tough, refreshing protagonist! Yea!)
Weaver takes much care in the details.
And in this day and age of technology, I felt a deep satisfaction in journeying with Anna and Kyle to such a remote, nature-dominated place.
Well done, Weaver. This is a fine piece of work!

HASH(0x98d8e354) out of 5 stars Love the message in this book 2 May 2014
By Barbara Geraghty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is definitely a book about chasing adventure as a path to fulfillment, but also shows how impulsive choices can go wrong and sometimes do. I was never sure which was which while reading the book, which kept me reading late into the night. What I loved most was how Anna overcomes her regret about mistakes of the past and finds new strength in herself by surviving in a treacherous environment. It reminded me of Wild in that sense, although I found her character much more likable. Alaska is almost a character in this book; the dark and dangerous villain that you fall in love with because of his rugged charm and breathtaking beauty.

HASH(0x96f5e87c) out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down! 22 April 2014
By Don Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was the best book I have read all year! I felt that I was right there with Anna on her journey to Alaska and finding herself. The characters were well developed, the details of the landscape and weather were so clear I became completely immersed, and the plot at times left me breathless as it was both emotional and physical. Anyone who enjoys reading to escape into a world that is beautiful and rustic and into a story that is about relationships and adventure will love this book. I recommend it to everyone!

HASH(0x96f4a990) out of 5 stars Intriguing Debut! 28 April 2014
By Misty Lebowitz | The Heart Market - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I would and have recommended this book to my family and friends! The book has great character depth and a lingering mystery that keeps you focused until the very last page. The book is descriptive allowing the readers the ability to picture the characters and the scenes to perfection. It makes me want to find my own lighthouse!!! Great job Rachel!! Cannot wait to read the next book!

HASH(0x978ed528) out of 5 stars Dru from Colorado 28 April 2014
By Dru from Colorado - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Two broken people come together to heal old wounds. One needs the solitude. One needs people and the fishing. In the harsh and rugged land, Anna and Kyle move towards forgiveness and love. Anna wants stability, a house and a home after traveling for so long and the lighthouse seems to give her that. The solitude disturbs Kyle to the point he has to flee. Rachel Weaver made me think about how I, as the reader, would react in a similar situation. Could I adapt to the stark loneliness and work hard to create a pioneer life, allowing my “muscles…wrap tighter to the bone with all the work and the cold rain”?

Rachel pulls together an amazing tale with vivid descriptions of the land and sea. The imagery she gave made me live in that wild land. I loved how she described the elements and their effect on the characters:

“We sat on the beach…and watched the polite water barely disturb the smooth sand of the shore….”

“It was beautiful in a way that demanded something. A landscape that has the power to ask anyone, at any time, to measure all the hidden parts of themselves.”

“Mountains and water and ice. I can feel myself stretch out, as if all this beauty were a couch where I could finally down.”

“The sea beneath me, dark of full of motion, rises to meet the sea within me.”

I lived a great experience through Anna and agree that “life moves in patterns, unless you break them.”

This book is a fantastic book. Good show Rachel! Everyone: please read this book!
