She's Run as Far as She Can from Her Past. Will It Still Come Back to Haunt Her? Tayler Hale is ahead of her time as one of the first women naturalists. She has always loved adventure and the great outdoors, and her remote job location also helps keep her away from a formidable man to whom she once made a foolish promise. It seems she must keep running, however, and she secretly journeys to a new job in Alaska. The popular Curry Hotel continues to thrive in 1929 as more visitors come to Alaska and venture into the massive national park surrounding Denali. Recent graduate Thomas Smith has returned to the hotel and the people he considers family. But when he finds himself having to work alongside a newly arrived female naturalist, everything becomes complicated. The summer brings unexpected guests and trouble to Curry. With his reputation at stake, will Thomas be able to protect Tayler from the danger that follows? "The vivid landscape of rugged Alaska and the looming presence of Denali, the High One, provide fascinating presence. Peterson and Woodhouse fans will enjoy seeing how familiar characters have advanced on their path and will embrace the book's quiet affirmation of faith, forgiveness, and keeping Christ central to one's life."--Historical Novel Reviews "Alaska in 1929 is an unusual setting for a historical novel, which made this one all the more interesting. . . . A strong spiritual thread ran through the story emphasizing the need to make God the focus of our lives, seeking Him more than anything else. This was handled quite well and in a way that didn't seem forced or preachy." --Among the Reads Praise for The Heart of Alaska Series "Set in the early 1900s, this first novel in The Heart of Alaska series hosts a cast of genuine characters who possess great strength and faith. The Curry, Ala., setting is captured in all of its glory."--RT Book Reviews on In the Shadow of Denali "Peterson and Woodhouse once again prove to be a dynamic authorial duo in this deeply personal novel."--Booklist on Out of the Ashes
