MELANIE WHITE has always liked history, but she certainly doesn't believe in ghosts. When a voice from the past begins to haunt her, she soon discovers wisdom in her words.
With the spunky ghost of Martha Black as her guide, Melanie wanders through history like she never has before. From the Great Chicago Fire to the Klondike Gold Rush of 1898, Martha Black recounts her life story vividly — sometimes a little too vividly.
Along the way Melanie hears the stories of the lively characters who shaped the Yukon's past: Robert Service, Klondike Kate, Soapy Smith, and, of course, Martha Black, the First Lady of the Yukon who went on to become the second woman in Parliament.
In the glow of the midnight sun, these two Yukon women encounter adventure, mystery, and secrets from the past.
