Publisher's Summary

Driven by desperation, Grace Hawkins must forsake the affluent comfort of her upbringing to save herself from an arranged marriage. Disillusioned by her father's insistence, she forges a daring plan to escape the sinister hand of her intended. Peter Colton sees the Alaskan gold rush as an opportunity to establish his family's fledgling shipping business. An unexpected partnership enables him to pursue those dreams and opens the door to an acquaintance with Grace, who has purchased passage north. Drawn together by need and circumstance, Grace and Peter form a faltering friendship. But when her deserted fiancee continues to manipulate her loved ones, can she find peace in the wake of his wrath?

    "Interesting"

    A little predictable but overall it keeps you interested in the characters and events. How things happen is unique. This is book one.

    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.

    "Excellent Story!"
    If you could sum up Treasures of the North in three words, what would they be?

    Great ! Great! Great!


    Which character – as performed by Laural Merlington – was your favorite?

    Laural is by far the most outstanding narrator ever! She has a different voice for every character! Each one is completely different so that you know who is speaking.
    accolades to Laural!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Tracie Peterson is one of my favorite authors, every book keeps me glued to the story. The problem is I can't put it down, she keeps me wanting more. Every book she writes does the same!

    The narrator did an excellent job reading this book. Her voice was so well for all the characters and kept me wanting to hear more. I thoroughly enjoyed this audio book.

    "Excellent character development"

    Her characters were well developed and it helped the reader identify with them! The bad guy was bad, but it was clear that God was stronger. It was inspiring and adventurous. Totally recommend.

    Actually, it is Jennifer, not Michael. I enjoy a variety of books but am drawn to romantic historical fiction with a Christian message.

    "Northbound to Freedom"

    This is a Christian romance where a young woman must choose to defy her father in order to preserve her self respect and happiness. She is forced to flee her family and the privileged life she has known and travel north. She endures many hardships but finds purpose and love. This is a light and easy listen with a good message and happy ending.

    "Only ok read"

    The story line was promising but failed to excite. The narrator was boring many times. Just too flat.
