This was a super book. I adored the detail in the writing, in the way in which both the minor and main characters were described. I also was fascinated by the way in which the rush to get to the gold in Dawson Creek was described. The tragedy of the people who died or lost everything they had scrimped and saved to have was so moving, and very sympathetically described, but it also made Lily and Jack's success all the sweeter. I found this a very unexpected gem, I am definitely going to be readin ...more

I won this on first-reads.
This book is lovely. The main character is someone I would love to be friends with, she is loyal, proud, and independent. Then Jack Snow is the character you love to hate, every time he says anything I scream "are you stupid!" In my head, but then again he is a guy so you can't blame him. By the end his endearing dumbness seems more tolerable and you begin to realize he is just trying to express himself in a way he had never been exposed to growing up in his own family

This is actually a 4 1/2 star book, but that isn't a choice here. The only reason it's not a 5 star is that Lily rescues Jack one too many times as far as I was concerned, and Jack wasn't quicker to see that he was nothing in the Yukon without her.

All that being said, the descriptions of the passage from Dyea to Dawson City were spectacular, just enough to give the flavor of how hard the journey was without wallowing in it. Lily's wilderness knowledge and her quick thinking made the book for me.

This is the kind of book I read and I'm glad I did regardless of the unusual (for me) theme, otherwise I'd have missed out on a very good love story. Jack and Lily were real people with real hang-ups. The progression of their feelings and their actions were human and believable. I'm not big on adventure but this one worked excellently, so much so that I'd like to read more books on the Yukon Gold rush. Jenna Keenan, well done!

I love reading stories set in this time period. 1897, Yukon Gold Rush, the excitement of discovering the unknown, the perilous journey to claim your land. All this with an underlying romance! I found Lily to be a wonderful character filled with spirit, courage and determination. Jack was the perfect compliment to her. Together they find their adventure in Dawson City...and a little something extra on the side!

This was a good story about the gold rush in the Yukon. One man's need to make money to restore his family's good name, and one woman needing to make a good life for herself. The two meet and help each other across the rugged land, rivers, and all sorts of dangers. Another fine story by Jenna Kernan.

Lily Shanahan was a singer who wanted to go to Dawson to start a new life. She met Jack Snow who had been a wealthy man from New York but lost everything and wanted to get rich by going to the Yukon Gold Rush. They were partners through the rough waters and the the long nights.
This was a quick and easy road. Also a very interesting quest for love and wealth.

Jack is out seeking his fortune to help support his mother and sister since his father lost all their money and then killed himself. He heads to the Yukon where he partners up with Lily, an irish immigrant. Even though they are miles apart in station they fall in love but will that be enough?
