I came to Alaska kicking and screaming. I never want to leave. I have cut firewood on shares for money to get through the winter. I swore I would not live above the Alaska Range because it was too cold up there and wound up in the Copper River Basin where it got just a cold as Fairbanks. I have farm dressed a bear that came too close to a friend's live stock and was shot by her 12 year old son. The bear bacon I smoked was great. I used a fish wheel to get in salmon for winter. I packed out the salmon a mile up the ridge and a mile down to the road. I have had to lift and hold something that was far past my strength and almost passed out while doing it. I have helped erect the walls of a new room 16 feet in the air and if either of us slipped it was going to be a good long stay in the hospital or a short one in the morgue. I have hauled water in 5 gallon pails and pumped water from 30 gallon garbage cans into the house at below zero temperatures for over 30 years. I am still the best hand wood splitter I know. I have sailed a small sailboat and loved the sound of the wind in the rigging. I lost one husband to alcohol and another to disease. The second one was the love of my life and my best friend. I am Cherime MacFarlane and I am an Alaskan.

This was very romantic, sweet read! Ms. MacFarlane did such a fabulous job depicting the Great North, that I will never travel ther in the winter! However, her details could make a reader visualize the wild backdrop that is Alaska.
I enjoy a storyline when the hero sweeps in, and treats a woman like she has value and prized beyond all of his own treasures. This book gave that to me and more.

I enjoyed this Alaska romance learning what it is like to deal daily w/Alaskan cold in the house/on the hwy and cranky moose on the loose in the front yard! I will definitely read her other books.
