New York Times bestselling author Barbara Delinsky touches the heart and spirit with this charming story, first published in 1982, of a young woman's search for passion and renewal.
No one could have imagined naïve and pampered Rory Matthews in the wilderness of the Yukon Territory—least of all Rory herself. But arriving unexpectedly to join her brother on a scientific expedition was Rory's way of putting her spoiled, rich-girl ways behind her.
Though she came prepared for the rough challenge of the land, she wasn't ready for the raw power of nature she discovered in the arms of Eric Clarkson. As majestic and rugged as the land around her, Eric was a man who perplexed her as much as he intrigued her . . . a man who infuriated her even as he offered a passionate, fulfilling new beginning to her life.
