Book Excerpt: 
. . .Hunted like a rat, chased from place to place, he must be more than those things for a woman like Isobel Deane still to cling to. He recalled the gentleness of her voice, the sweetness of her face, the tenderness of her blue eyes, and for the first time the thought came to him that such a woman could not love a man who was wholly bad. And she did love him. A twinge of pain came with that truth, and yet with it a thrill of pleasure. Her loyalty was a triumph— even for him. She had come to him like an angel out of the storm, and she had gone from him like an angel. He was glad. A living, breathing reality had taken the place of the dream vision in his heart, a woman who was flesh and blood, and who was as true and as beautiful as the blue flower he had carried against his breast.

Edge of your seat reading. Learn about the old far north. Thrilling.

Apr 8, 8pm ~~ Review asap. Afraid this is a DNF for me, after 6 of 23 chapters.

Bumped up to five stars for emotional enjoyment.

It’s a raw, blustery outdoors story with a lot of snow and Canadian tundra. There are plenty of sad moments and poignant ones as Billy pursues his man and finds himself surprised. The antagonists and friends he meets along the way keep the story moving

Not a book I would normally read...but a story that I have come to love. When the word "romance" is included in the title, I tend to shy away.

A true love story

Adventure, love gained, love lost, tragedy, suspense, happy ending. Death and murder without the gruesome details. Pure love without the lust. A book for those who appreciate old style literature. It is not for those who are looking to be titillated by blood and sex scenes.
