When a mysterious old gentleman declares his life-long love for Marion Belle Pond at her funeral, her daughter, Sonia Harrison Jones, realizes there is a lot about her life that she didn't know before. The old man's words inspire her to embark on a journey to rediscover her mother through the people she knew and loved.
This true story touches on Percy Pond, the author's grandfather and celebrated frontier photographer who documented the Klondike Gold Rush, the founding of Juneau, and the culture of the native tribes in Alaska. It also introduces Kay Harrison, the author's charismatic father, who was the Managing Director of Hollywood's Technicolor Films in London, Paris, and Rome.
Set against against the backdrop of pre-war Japan, the early years of the territory of Alaska, and the drama of World War II, this unique saga shows us history as it plays out in the life of one family. It explores the unpredictability and profound ironies of life, the effect of heart-rending choices with their far-reaching consequences, and the transforming, empowering nature of love and forgiveness.
