    2.5 stars The writing style and dialogue was extremely dry The first half which details their trip to Dawson City was really boring I thought that would be the exciting part, but it wasn t until Anna reached Dawson City and the drama between her and her fiance ensued that the plot started to pick up the pace moving slow rather than dragging There was a small twist at 65% on a kindle but it the plot still continued to be dull..it isn t until 86% that anything of great interest occurs.Hi 2.5 stars The writing style and dialogue was extremely dry The first half which details their trip to Dawson City was really boring I thought that would be the exciting part, but it wasn t until Anna reached Dawson City and the drama between her and her fiance ensued that the plot started to pick up the pace moving slow rather than dragging There was a small twist at 65% on a kindle but it the plot still continued to be dull..it isn t until 86% that anything of great interest occurs.Historically, there is mention and a brief memory of the Battle of Wounded Knee Women s inequality is discussed and seen throughout Anna s journey The overall atmosphere for the time period in this novel is very bleak I was expecting to learn a lot about the gold rush in Alaska, but I didn t learn a lot in this novel.Technical notes Anna begins her journey on a ship to Skagaway for the first 10% on a Kindle Their stay and encampment at Skagway is detailed from 10 20% At 20%, they reach the Dyea settlement, and at 21% they begin the Chilkhoot Trail The Chilkhoot Trail is detailed from 21 45% and on the trail they stop at Canyon City, Sheep Camp, and the Scales Anna reaches Dawson at 45% and the remainder of the novel happens there focusing on the romance.It is true to the blurba young girl named Anna is escorted to Dawson City by two men because her father has sold her as a bride to pay of his debt She is sold to a wealthy man who has made his fortune off of the gold rush and is called King of the Klondike Along the way, several people doubt her ability as a woman to make the journey Anna then falls in love with another, but knows she must stay with her fiance in order to secure her families survival.For the majority of the story, I was bored and disengaged I was very disappointed since I really enjoyed his other novels I will still be looking forward to his next novel, though this one was not my favorite.Initially, I was going to give this two stars, but because the ending did provide some sort of stimulating redemption I gave it 2.5 and rounded to 3

    Disappointing Really liked White Rose, Black Forest by this author and have traveled several times to Skagway, Alaska, and Dawson City, Yukon, so I thought this book would be a winner However, because the characters were one dimensional and many of the situations were so far fetched, the book became a chore rather than enjoyment.


  5. Jess Jess says:

    I loved the depiction of life in the Klondike at the turn of the century the author really painted a vivid picture But the story and characters just lacked oomph for me.

    Not what I expectedThis was a waste of time Stupid and farfetched at best Vile and not reflecting the timeframe I would be embarrassed to share among my friends.


  7. Carolyn Carolyn says:

    I was looking forward to reading this because I really liked White Rose, Black Forest, however, I was really disappointed Though the struggles of the gold rush in the Klondike were good, the story around it was contrived and not believable.

    DisappointingNot much happens until late in the book The first 45% of it on my Kindle was travel I was hoping for adventures in the Klondike, but it waslike a soap opera that started out bland and became unlikely There were comments about the rugged beauty of the area, but it was never described adequately The conversations were stilted, and the characters changed their behavior abruptly An attempt was made to convey passion, but there was no buildup, and it fell flat I hated the dir DisappointingNot much happens until late in the book The first 45% of it on my Kindle was travel I was hoping for adventures in the Klondike, but it waslike a soap opera that started out bland and became unlikely There were comments about the rugged beauty of the area, but it was never described adequately The conversations were stilted, and the characters changed their behavior abruptly An attempt was made to convey passion, but there was no buildup, and it fell flat I hated the direction the relationships took I never felt connected to any characters I gave the story every chance, but some scenes ruined for me Besides being poorly written, they was too lurid for my taste

    Billed as historical fiction, this is reallyof a cheesy romance book meets historical fiction meets bad thriller The first part following the main character s trip to Dawson City on the Chilkoot Trail was interesting, but mostly I found the characters to be flat and predictable There are few descriptions of the actual lives of those of working Klondike Gold Rush, rather it is a romanticized view of the experience Thankfully it is a pretty short book and easy to breeze through.

    3.5 StarsThis historical romance set in the heart of Alaska during the Klondike gold rush, swept me away from 2020 and put me right in this era It was a beautifully descriptive read that vividly details the setting and emotions of the characters The beginning was a slow build, as far as plot and I found myself speed reading just before the half way point The plot picked up after that and while I enjoyed the pick up in pace, the characters actions left me perplexed at time Still very much wor 3.5 StarsThis historical romance set in the heart of Alaska during the Klondike gold rush, swept me away from 2020 and put me right in this era It was a beautifully descriptive read that vividly details the setting and emotions of the characters The beginning was a slow build, as far as plot and I found myself speed reading just before the half way point The plot picked up after that and while I enjoyed the pick up in pace, the characters actions left me perplexed at time Still very much worth the read
