Overview

Could They Fulfill Their Dreams in this Untamed Land?

Driven by desperation, Grace Hawkins must forsake the affluent comfort of her upbringing to save herself from an arranged marriage. Disillusioned by her father's insistence, she forges a daring plan to escape the sinister hand of her intended.

Peter Colton sees the Alaskan gold rush as an opportunity to establish his family's fledgling shipping business. An unexpected partnership enables him to pursue those dreams and opens the door to an aquaintance with Grace, who has purchased passage north.

Drawn together by need and circumstance, Grace and Peter form a faltering friendship. But when her deserted fiance continues to manipulate her loved ones, can she find peace in the wake of his wrath?

This book was constantly gripping. The light romance didn't smother the book like others I have read. The adventure and spiritual concept was uplifting, and the danger was suspensful. The book was well written by Tracy Peterson, and others I have read of hers were done well.

This book has 288 pages, is the first in a series and well edited. It is Christian fiction. The next book in the series cost $5.99. There is an open conclusion. This book was an okay read. It seems the author got caught in a rut and made the same events occur over and over until the book becomes a decent length, then said," to be continued." For example, a man leaves his children, no less than five times while he treks up and down the mountain. It is like reading reruns. There is a lot of discussion about God, the Bible, Bible verses, prayers and the proper way a woman should behave and obey a man. There is some mild violence. For ages 16 and up. I will not be purchasing the next book. AD

I enjoy reading without the usual vulgar words and constant sex.  This was a good book except the father who couldn't stay home.  nothing about what he did just he was gone.  Then it ended.......

I have read a few of this author's novels and I thought that this was not as great as the other ones. Too many stories at once. I would ve liked to read abt the main character's (Grace) and her mom get in touch with each other instead of just a short note to the main character. Also, would have liked more of a resolution regarding the missing father (Karen's). The ending was abrupt but probably the best solution to the plot. All in all it is still a good book. But I dont think that I ll read the rest of the series.

This book is somewhat dark and the male chatacters sadistic.  Not a typical christian romance.  It is suspenseful, but myself, who already has a bad view of men, it only left me feeling very disapointed.  Also it does leave you haning and you must read the next book to find out what happens.

The story itself is well written, however, the ending was very disappointing. Its almost as if she didn't know how to end so she simply stopped writing.

I fully enjoyed reading this book. Tracie Peterson is a great writer and I found myself lost in the story. There were moments I should have been doing something else but read instead! Now on to Book #2 in the series.

No definite ending. Have to buy the next book to find out what happens next. Probably keeps on having to buy the next one again.

this lady was promised to a man that she saw would not be kind to her. what happened becomes a great story about the journey to the north and how she dwelt with it.
