Format: Paperback
This is one of Tracie Peterson's best series. She makes it exciting and draws you into the book, while also having some very good parts about God and faith. These books were the first of hers I read, and they remain my favorite.
Karen, Grace, and Karen's aunt Doris are three of the most diverse characters I've seen in a book that remain fast friends. Grace is meek and shy; Karen is anxious for women to be seen as humans and have equal rights; Doris is an old spinster with a straight-forward view of life, believing in the education of women and children.
The plot of the first book, Treasures of the North, caught my attention... and held it. I have to say I didn't expect the events in the second and third books, Ashes and Ice and Rivers of Gold. Tracie Peterson weaves words like a magician, something I strive to achieve. When I'm wanting for a book to read, the Yukon Quest is one of the first I consider.

Grace and Peter's marriage started out as a matter of convenience, but at the time they both fully loved each other. But things don't always last. They have a small argument and one leaves the other.

Karen suffers a great loss and has to decide what to do next. She decides the only thing to do is to head north to the goldfields to find Jacob. With the help of Adrik Ivanov goes with them as their guide but he also has a hidden quest behind the journey.

Peter gets awful news and heads north to investigate but it's too late in the season to actually head north into the goldfields. So he has to wait out the winter with the awful news.

Tracie does a wonderful job in continuing the story of Grace and Karen in this book. Sometimes it's hard to continue a series with such a complex story line. Hopefully the next book will be just as good.

I ENJOY CHRISTIAN FICTION AND WILL CERTAINLY ADD MS. PETERSON'S NAME TO MY LIST OF FAVORITE HISTORICAL FICTION WRITERS. THIS BOOK, AS WELL AS THE FIRST ONE IN THE YUKON QUEST SERIES,IS VERY ENTERTAINING-A PERFECT DIVERSION FROM REGULAR ROUTINE TASKS. I ANXIOUSLY AWAIT THE THIRD IN THE SERIES AND HOPE THAT WILL BE OUT VERY SOON! IT IS SO REFRESHING TO READ GOOD FICTION THAT IS WHOLESOME AND NOT OFFENSIVE TO THE STANDARD OF LIFE THAT IS ALL IMPORTANT TO ME. I FREQUENTLY SHARE WITH ONE OFF MY TEENAGE GRANDDAUGHTERS BOOKS OF THIS TYPE AND DELIGHT IN HER ENJOYMENT OF THEM AS SHE LOVES LOSING HERSELF IN A BOOK AS OFTEN AS SHE CAN FIT IT INTO HER OTHERWISE BUSY SCHEDULE.

Format: Paperback
This book fits perfectly as the second in a trilogy. The beginning re-introduces you to the characters, and the end leaves you wanting to read the next book immediately. In between- there are disasters, secrets, and misunderstandings. Despite all of their hardships, the faith of the characters is deepened and strengthened.
These books may be formulaic, but Ms. Peterson writes very well, so the formula isn't noticed as much. The descriptions are vivid and the thoughts of the characters are written so well, I found myself slipping into the book and feeling what the characters were going through.
