Joanne Desy5 Stars Out Of 5May 23, 2009Joanne DesyI enjoyed this book quite a bit. I really didn't think I would. It was interesting how these people lived back in those days and the extreme challenges they encountered on a daily basis. After the second book I was very curious about how it would all come together, It did and it was great!
Deborah5 Stars Out Of 5January 9, 2007DeborahIn the third book of the Alaskan quest series, Jayce and Jacob are shipwrecked on an Arctic island with a bleak outlook of leaving. Meanwhile their wives Leah and Helena are back at home in Alaska waiting for their husbands to get back home. Leah is still struggling with the fact that her children may not be really be Jayce's children and the aftermaths of what Chase had done to her. Helena is worried that Jacob still doesn't really love her. The two women bond together as they battle the harsh Alaskan setting, dealing with influenza, changes from their friends, and the outbreak of WWI.I've mentioned before I love really good book covers. This whole series has had some beautiful covers and this one is my favorite (the whole hair blowing in the wind thing). I want to say that it's Leah on the cover. I enjoyed reading the book as it tied up many story lines and described more historical detail about the time period and area. I felt however that the back cover summary only focused on the first half of the book. While the situation with Jayce and Jacob being shipwrecked is a big factor of the story, it is only part of the book. I did like the side storyline about the "Russian" guy. Winter usually brings about death and there were many deaths in the book, including a major beloved character that was unexpected. While reading this book, once again I felt really cold especially when the men were stuck on the island. Totally realistic reading when you think you need to put on a coat. I hope that maybe there will be another spin off of this series, perhaps focusing on Karen's children?
Harriet Klausner5 Stars Out Of 5October 15, 2006Harriet KlausnerIn 1917 in the Alaskan Territory, with their ship sinking into the icy waters, Jacob Barringer, Jayce Kincaid and others are in trouble as they struggle to survive the freezing weather. They pray a rescue team will find them before each of them dies.At the same former Pinkerton Agent Helaina Beecham and Leah Kincaid pray for the safe return of their loved ones who have been away much longer than expected. Perhaps it is this common fear for their missing soul mates, but the close friendship between Helaina and Leah turns stronger as they turn to one another and to God for solace. Whereas Leah begins to doubt her Jayce will return to her, Helaina believes that Jacob will come home to Lost Chance, but not necessarily to her as he never told her he loved her; still all she prays for is the safe return of all the missing men.The final Alaskan Quest tale (see UNDER THE NORTHERN LIGHTS and SUMMER OF THE MIDNIGHT SUN) is a superb inspirational historical thriller that hooks the audience from the start as the women worry about the men stuck on some ice floe with little hope of rescue. Readers will appreciate the two subplots as the citizens of Lost Chance struggle with concern and with a debilitating epidemic while the men try to survive their ordeal (you will need a winter coat, gloves, a hat, and a scarf as the reader will feel the frozen temperatures). Tracie Peterson provides a terrific climax to an exciting early twentieth century inspirational saga.Harriet Klausner
