Juliet Rose’s Catch the Earth features the journey that Audra and Luke experienced after boarding a charter plane. Fleeing from an abusive husband, Audra took the flight not knowing who she was anymore. She saw two athletic men talking but then noticed that one of them was missing an arm. Forty-five minutes later, the plane lost altitude and crashed into a mountainside. Audra regained consciousness outside the plane but was suffering from a severe leg injury. Thankfully Luke, the one-armed man, also survived the crash. Working together, they entered the cargo hold and found a large amount of plutonium. Both of them knew they needed to get away from the crash site. The following day, a plane flew toward the wrecked aircraft. A struggle against nature and fleeing from terrorists bonded these two people who were dealing with emotional trauma.
Juliet Rose focused on Audra’s point of view. The common red flags present in the character of her husband James were evident from his words and actions. The weight of Audra’s emotional baggage was immense. Luke’s missing arm didn’t hinder his determination. It was easy to imagine the wilderness and the difficulty of climbing over a mountain range. The suspense grew in intensity as each day passed. Luke’s genuine love for Audra was clear from his encouragement. I found the support Luke and Audra gave each other to be enchanting. The solidarity was uplifting despite the lingering danger. The end of the story resonated with their motto: "Believe, Trust, Conquer." Catch the Earth will appeal to romance readers who enjoy viewing the emotions that a character feels while facing major life changes.
