If you are a Gilbert Morris fan then you won't be disappointed. This is one of my favorites out of this series.
The Yukon Queen is book 17 of Gilbert Morris' Historical Fiction series, "House of Winslow", which follows one family's line down through America's history, starting with the first pilgrims. Each book can stand alone or be read as part of the series. Though the books are filled with rich, accurate historical detail, they are great recreational reading and have fun plots with a touch of wholesome romance. Check my list for more in this series.
This is a great series for those who are interested in exciting historical novels with a Christian message. The books follow one family "The Winslows" from their religious persecution in England, to the trip on the Mayflower to America. They continue following family members through the first winter in the new country, on to the Revolutionary War, the Civil war, the move west, etc.
The characters are exciting and each new book in the series has the children and grandchildren as the main characters, although the previous generation still has a part so they are easy to follow. There are many books in this series, and I just finished Book 6. Gilbert Morris is an excellent author and each book stands on its own but I'm glad I started at the beginning even though it may take me a year or more to finish them all. It's worth it!

This is the first book I've read of this series by Gilbert Morris. I gravitated it to it looking for a book to fulfill part of a reading challenge. I was so drawn into the book I read it in one afternoon.
It's a great historical romance; pulls historical characters into the story. It's so well written, I'm interested in reading more of the series. The book wasn't listed as a romance but it definitely includes a romance so I've requested a book edit to add romance as a genre.
my copy is a hardback with the same isbn number as the paperback already listed in the system.
