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 isolated 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 enjoyed reading about a real event that I had never heard of before. The Matanuska Colonization was a project of Roosevelt's in 1935 to help some of those who suffered from the Great Depression. There was a relocation of 200 families to the Matanuska Valley in Alaska. It was a nice change to read about something so different than the few main settings for most fiction.

The basic storyline and the plot idea were very good, but they couldn't completely salvage the book for me. There's a lot (like, a lot!) of introspective dialogue, much of it repetitive, such as Jeremiah's constantly telling himself that he has to come clean eventually. It's often phrased in questions. "Can she forgive me?" "Will I have to leave?" There's too much contemplation and emotion. After a while I lose any empathy and just want tell them to get on with it already!
