Christmas 1897. Ellen Pierce and her brother are determined to reach the Alaska gold rush. But when ice stalls their steamship, all seems lost, until Buck Lewis makes a decision: he’ll lead all who dare to follow on foot toward Dawson City.
Buck is determined to leave behind a heartbreaking past. No amount of ice or weather will stop him. But he never counted on a woman joining a dangerous wilderness trek–or on falling in love with her.
As their journey unfolds and Christmas approaches, Ellen and Buck discover that the greatest gift of all can’t be wrapped in paper and tied with a bow. It comes from, and is received in, the heart.
Come share in a soul-deep romance that gives a joyful reminder of a redeeming God who makes us each unique, yet loves us all the same.
We have all heard of the little engine that could, correct? Well, this is the little book that could. Jamie Carie has succeeded in packing this little novella with enough drama, adventure, and romance to possibly be stretched out into a series (oh, how I wish she would!). With this book, Jamie stays true to form in producing a wonderful inspirational historical romance that does not shy away from complex issues such as mental illness, abuse, prostitution, revenge, and abandonment. This story is a raw examination of the human will to survive that is sometimes just as dangerous and wild as the landscape it is set against.
