Summary "After the tragic death of her husband and son on a remote island in Washington's San Juan Islands, Eliza Waite joins the throng of miners, fortune hunters, business owners, con men, and prostitutes traveling north to the Klondike in the spring of 1898. Using Gold Rush history, diary entries and authentic pioneer recipes, Eliza Waite transports readers to the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of a raucous and fleeting era of American history." -- page 4 of cover.
After the tragic death of her husband and son on a remote island in Washington's San Juan Islands, Eliza Waite joins the throng of miners, fortune hunters, business owners, con men, and prostitutes traveling north to the Klondike in the spring of 1898. With less than fifty dollars to her name, and the help of some unsavory characters, Eliza opens a bakery on Skagway's main street. She befriends a madam at a neighboring bordello, and awakens emotionally and sexually. When an unprincipled man from her past turns up in Skagway, will Eliza be able to conceal her identity and move forward with her new life?
