This historical tale of romance, ambition, and perseverance through trying times introduces a hero who longs for love on her own terms.
Abigail Porter has always dreamed of becoming a doctor-a shocking career choice for a woman in the late 1800s. Despite her drive and passion, though, life gets in the way, and by the time she is twenty-one, Abby is a young widow working as a prostitute to make ends meet.
At her darkest moment, she meets Nate Brown, a young doctor from Michigan. With the furor of the Klondike gold rush in the Canadian Yukon as a backdrop, Abby falls deeply in love with the gentle doctor, but circumstances once again conspire to keep her from her dreams. When a brutal client of Abby's is found dead, suspicion falls on her beloved Nate-and Abby can't bear thinking that Nate may be punished for a crime he did not commit.
A corrupt murder investigation isn't the only thing Nate has to fear: a mysterious, psychotic figure is stalking both Nate and Abby. As the two lovers grow closer and contemplate building a future together, they will first have to face down the deadly secret hidden in their pasts.
