Independence is the safe route. If you fail, you have no one to blame but yourself, right? Elizabeth has found this to be true. Abandoned as a child she has learned the value influencing people and circumstances to fit her need. If she knows anything for sure, it is how to survive. And she's convinced all she needs is her share of Yukon gold. Back in 1898, women had few choices aside from marriage - Elizabeth's security, her pot of gold, means Alaska and the courage to get there.
But she didn't plan on meeting a man like Noah.
Noah Wesley startled her out of all her thinking. He didn't seem to need anything . . . and why that was puzzled and courted her. This man, so tall and strong in ways that weren't just physical, taught her something beyond mere survival. He taught her risk . . . and hope . . . and a faith in something bigger than the here and now.
Noah taught her love.
They say you can't let nothin' in without letting go. Now, Elizabeth is faced with the task of letting go of everything that has helped her survive over the past twenty years. Can a mere man be trusted with something so guarded as her heart? Will he prove as good as he appears? There is some healing to be done first. Jane is the mother who has been searching for her stolen daughter. A dark evil has kept them apart, but God is still God and His timing is perfect. Just look up, Elizabeth. Look up and believe.
Dear Reader, if you have ever doubted love, both His and man's, as I have, you will know Elizabeth's story. There might not be fairy-tale endings in this life . . . but there are eternal endings, and any effort of faith we put into the side of love will count for eternity.
May His extravagant love overwhelm you every day - this day, this hour,
