Scraping out an existence in the Alaskan wilderness with her twin brother, Meredith Smith regularly receives marriage proposals. But they're easy to refuse from men who value her as little more than a cook and a maid. When Ian Rafferty arrives, he makes no such overtunes, offering instead the loyal friendship of a fellow Christian. The more neighborly help Ian offers, the more Meredith is attracted to him... and the more guilt she feels about hiding the secret that shadows her and her brother's lives. Will the past force Meredith to turn from Ian, or will a golden dawn of promise offer her the joy of love returned?
