The authors based this book around the Matanuska Project, created by FDR for the Alaska territory, back in the 1930's.
While I wasn't completely surprised by the ending, and found the book overall predictable, the characters were enough to keep me reading.
I enjoyed the historical aspects of the book, more than the romance between the main characters. There's a lot of drama going on all the way through the book, and I enjoyed the suspense that the "villain" in this story created. Without that tension, the story may have dragged along a bit.
This book was ok for me - not the best that I've read by Tracie Peterson and certainly not my favorite out of all of her books.
I suggest reading it for yourself, to see what you think.
