Cora Colton can’t believe she even doubts saying yes to Christopher Payton’s proposal. From a good family, wealthy, and charming, Christopher is perfect for her. However, seeing his band of gold and diamonds, she hesitates. Something is missing, something is wrong, but she just doesn’t know what that something is.
After her father’s sudden death, Cora travels to Tacoma and learns that she is now the owner of his gold claim in Dawson City, Canada. Throwing caution to the wind, she leaves her engagement ring on the table, and departs for Canada and the adventure of a lifetime.
Arriving in the canvas tent town of Skagway on the Klondike trail, Cora catches the attention of Flynn O’Neill, an Irishman who has lived on the trail, guiding stampeeders for a few years. A bond thrusts them together, but their pasts could be what tears them apart–if they can survive the hardships and death on the trail to the land of gold.
*****What I Thought About This Book*****
For the most part it was a good book. The story line was unbelievable in places and it seemed to drag on. It is not a book you can’t put down, but it is a good little book for between heavy reading.
