This was a very good book for the author's first book. It held my interst all the way thru. At the first I had to go back and compare my dates, but after that it I could not put it down. I was hoping Mrs.Carie would make a sequel of it, but I don't think so. She transports you back in time to Alaska and you feel as if you are in the gold fields with Elizabeth and Noah. Good reading all the way.
For being a christian book it sure went into the topic of sex a lot. The start of the book was wonderful, action packed even! But then after that, it just kept repeating itself and I grew bored with the storyline. She kept repeating that she wanted to mine for gold and he kept repeating how he'd love to feel a woman's touch again and what his thoughts were of her etc etc etc. Perhaps after a bit it picked back up again, I don't know. I just knew I couldn't read anymore. I read Christian books to avoid all the mushy love scenes etc etc, and this one could have been the start of a romance novel.
