Publisher's Summary

From the bestselling author of White Rose, Black Forest comes a page-turning epic of adventure, suspense, and romance set against the rich and ruthless backdrop of the Klondike gold rush.

Seattle, 1897. Anna Denton is not like the other prospectors traveling to the Yukon on the promise of riches. It’s duty - not profit - that calls her into the wild unknown. With her family nearing financial ruin, Anna has agreed to marry Henry Bradwell, the wealthy King of the Klondike. 

She meets Will and Silas, childhood friends, on the steamer north. After the ship docks in a lawless Alaska town, Anna’s chaperones run afoul of local criminals, leaving her stranded. Will and Silas agree to escort her the hundreds of treacherous miles to Dawson City - the gateway to the goldfields - and her betrothed, a man she doesn’t know.

Upon their arrival, Bradwell warmly welcomes them all. But as a brutal winter sets in, relations sour, and Anna is caught between the promise her family made to the power-hungry Bradwell and her feelings for Will. Anna and her companions soon find themselves in a deadly game where few can be trusted and where the greatest danger in the frozen wilderness of the Klondike is man himself.

blindsided by homosexual relationships

The narration is great but I would at least like to be informed of alternate lifestyles portrayed in a book.

Detailed sex act hurt this book

I would have liked it better if you would have left the detailed sex scene out. But was thankful there was only one.

Just...Excellent

Wow what a book. This book was not at all what I had expected. This was a book of adventure and romance. It was a clean romance, I usually like a little steam but it was still excellent. It was well written and narration was also excellent.

A worthy read/listen

A peek into a time & place I'd not know. It would make an excellent mini series. Great visuals & flawed, thus interesting, characters.

Okay story

Story of a young lady going to Dawson Canada during the gold rush to marry a man much older than she is. Slow to start and I think reveals too much of the back story too early. Definitely adult themes and some violence against a woman involved. I'd say PG 13 in 2 or 3 chapters.
Performance is fine.

Spellbinding story and presentation

For anyone who wants to know what it was really like, think this book gets as close as you can get without living it yourself. A student of the Klondike and that era.....definitely major thumbs up.👍👍👍👍👍
