Leah Barringer Kincaid and Helaina Beecham meet again after being abducted by Chase Kincaid, a wanted murderer. Forced deep into the Alaskan wilderness, the women contemplate their escape until Helaina becomes gravely ill. Fiercely independent, Helaina must now rely on Leah for survival. However, when Leah is assaulted by her captor, she must struggle past her rage at Chase and God to formulate a plan.

Jayce Kincaid is determined to rescue his wife Leah and end the war with his twin brother, Chase. The hunt through Alaska leads to a stand-off in which Jayce must choose between vengeance and forgiveness.

In part two of the Alaskan Quest series, Peterson provides a rich backdrop of Alaska in the early 1900s. This intricately woven portrayal of justice and faith begins at a slow pace but steadily climbs as the plot thickens. (Jun., 400 pp., $19.99)
