Gwyn Hillerman loves being a nurse at her father's clinic on the beautiful Alaskan frontier. But family life has been rough ever since her mother left them, disdaining the uncivilized country and taking Gwyn's younger sister with her.
In Chicago, Dr. Jeremiah Vaughan finds his life suddenly turned upside down when his medical license is stripped away after an affluent patient dies. In a snowball effect, his fiance breaks their engagement. In an attempt to bury the past, Jeremiah accepts Dr. Hillerman's invitation to join his growing practice in the ited Alaska Territory.
Gwyn and Jeremiah soon recognize a growing attraction to each other. But when rumors of Jeremiah's past begin to surface, they'll need more than love to face the threat of an uncertain future.
I found this book a bit slow but interesting all the same. You were kept entertained but honestly there were no real surprises. I did however learn something new as I had never heard of the Matanuska Project before, so that part of the book was really interesting.
Also make sure you read the author's notes at the end of the book, there are some interesting facts in there that were included in the book.
Stars out of 5 : 4 It wasn't a hard book to read and the story did keep going at a steady pace. I just didn't find it gripping enough for me. I would recommend reading the book though as it is an easy read.
