The lure of the nineteenth-century gold rush calls to Erik, a civil-war veteran. He and Anna, his Aleutian bride, set sail for a new life together in Sitka.
Anna stands strong against the adversities of the new land with its unfamiliar culture and fearsome challenges. She fights the prejudice of others, while growing her newfound faith in the white man’s God.
When forced to move farther north and begin again, Anna refuses to give up, allowing nothing to stand in the way of her family’s happiness. They discover joy as well as heartache in the Alaskan wilderness. But will Erik’s love of gold put all they’ve worked so hard for in jeopardy?
I enjoyed this book. I read it many years ago and enjoyed it then as well as now. Alaska
is one of the places I have yet to visit. This book made me want to visit and see it for myself.
Bonnie Leon developed her character’s well.They were realistic and believable. It was interesting to see how
Anne adapted to her new life and life with Erik.
I think as the reader, you can learn from the struggles and joys that the character’s go through. Bonnie Leon did a great job weaving God’s truth throughout the book.
I recommend this book to family & friends.
I received this book from Ashberry Lane for my honest review.
