I have read several of Tracie's books, and have enjoyed them. Although I did like this one, it isn't one of my favorites. I wish she would have developed the characters and story a little better. Alaska in the 1890's was very rugged, especially for women, but she kind of skimmed over details like that. But all in all, it was a good book, and I am looking forward to seeing what happens to Grace and Peter in the second book.
