This is the tale of Essie, a woman running from her husband in Minnesota, who is takes a job offer aboard a ship bound for the Alaska goldmines in Nome and discovers another life and herself. The book not only offers an intriguing and poignant story but also identifiable, realistic characters that struggle with difficult issues.
