She fears that her chances are diminishing with each passing day. Teddy is deeply committed to his research of the unique landscape of the rugged Alaskan frontier.

"Peterson's writing is strong enough to keep readers turning the pages." (Publishers Weekly)
The story was interesting and entertaining.
I enjoy listening and she did a great job reading it to me. Good character voices.
I enjoyed experiencing Alaska and the gold rush reality. I like happy endings! This life has enough reality and heartache - these trials had a wonderful conclusion.
Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.
Historical and faith filled story of Alaskan gold rush, Rivers of Gold is the third and final book in the Yukon Quest series . . . no loose ends are left, making me very satisfied . . . as I've become very vested in the lives of Grace, Peter, Karen, Adrik, Leah, Jacob, Miranda and her parents . . . and in this book, Teddy . . . the growth and changes as each comes to the understand and accept the purpose that God has for them are both difficult and rewarding to listen to . . . as it is in our own lives . . . the birth of little Andy and other surprises bring so much joy . . . the ruggedness and harsh beauty of the Alaskan wilderness and of the native people there are depicted as they must have been in 1899-1900, the beginning of the new century . . . I will be listening to more of Tracie Peterson's books . . . Bravo!
This series by Tracie Peterson is one of complete captivation! The story keeps you wanting to continue reading without a break until the end. Tracie is one of my favorite authors, I can't wait for a new series.
This is one of those time I often experience when I come to the end of a book or series of books thatihaveloved. it's a sadness, I feel like I will miss the characters of the story and wish it could continue on.
I really enjoyed this book! The characters are so real I hope this series of books goes on for a long time.
I was excited to listen to this book, but the story and performance were both found lacking. There was so much preaching and the same storylines from previous book drug on, with whining women and children. Very disappointing and predictable. Miranda and Grace"s voices sounded the same. It seems the book would have been better in print, as I could have more easily skipped over the long sermons and dramatic prayers.
