Présentation de l'éditeur

Leah Barringer and her brother, Jacob, have come to love the rugged Alaskan Territory they call home.

But when Jacob determines to join an arctic expedition, Leah realizes her heart yearns for more than this solitary existence.

The unexpected arrival of Jayce Kincaide, the man who spurned her ten years before, awakens feelings that Leah would much prefer to leave buried. As Jayce sets out to prove he's a changed man, Leah cannot deny the effect he once again has upon her. But the appearance of a young investigator casts a cloud over Jayce's past...and over Leah's dreams for the future.

Alaskan Quest - Book 1 --- Leah Barringer and her brother Jacob have lived awhile in the Alaskan wilderness. In spite of the hard life that territory makes a body endure, they had come to love the land and it's native people. On a trip to gather supplies for their trading post, Jacob took longer than usual and brought back more than supplies. He brought his friend Jayce Kincaid - a man that Leah had loved 10 years before and who had broken her heart. Not only was Jayce a painful reminder of her unmarried state as she turned 30, but she'd never gotten over him or his rejection of her love. Not only would Jayce reignite the flames of a long ago passion, leaving Leah with unresolved feelings, but her brother Jacob was seriously considering joining up with Jayce on an arctic expedition.

When an accident postponed their departure, Leah had time to see that Jayce was indeed a changed man, and as Leah prayed for Jayce's recovery, she hoped that perhaps the future she'd once dreamed of having with him would become a reality. The entrance into their lives of a mysterious young woman, Helaina Beecham, who seemed determined to insert herself into Jayces' life might very well put a hold on any dreams Leah might have for the future.

*** Ms. Peterson does a fabulous job in researching historical facts, native customs, and the hardships of how life was lived in 1915 on the Alaskan frontier. The daily life as well as the adventures they endured traversing the unforgiving rugged terrain made this an exciting and adventuresome read. Peterson faithfully depicts Leah and her brother's great love of God, his teachings, living a good Christian life and relying on the direction God in their daily life, especially as Jacob tries to impart this knowledge to a very troubled Helaina. Leaving you with a bit of a cliff-hanger, the secondary storyline of Helaina and Jacob will be a highly anticipated continuation in the Alaskan Quest saga!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 a bit predictable but worth the read 8 mai 2007
Par April M. Gardner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Jacob Barringer is one of the better male characters I've read. He's adventurous, confident, and loyal, but he's got a little problem with saying exactly what's on his mind, even if it's not the most appropriate thing at the time. I liked that...maybe because I can relate!

On the other hand, Helaina Beecham--the "young investigator" mentioned above--rubbed me entirely the wrong way. She causes all sorts of problems for the other main characters. An unbeliever on a mission to rid the world of evil, she has questionable strategies.

The author uses Helaina's and Jacob's differing opinions on justice and mercy to give a clear presentation of the Gospel, making this book a great gift for a lost friend. For a Christian, though, it was a bit "skimable" during those sections.

If you're looking for a learning experience in the early 1900's Alaskan frontier, you've come to the right place. Peterson paints a beautiful picture of the tundra and its people. America is debating whether to join World War I, and Alaska isn't even a state yet. It makes for a very fresh setting.

The end of the book is left wide open for the next in the series, and I plan on getting on that right away.

Although, I found it a little predictable, it's worth the read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I loved this book! 23 août 2006
Par N. Honsaker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Okay, so before I get started on my review let me just say that I didn't realize before I picked this book up that it is a spinoff of the "Yukon Quest" series. So, if you want to get the backstory on the Leah and Jacob (two of the main characters), you should read the Yukon Quest series first. Now that I got that out of the way...

This was the first book I've read by Tracie Peterson, and it made me want to read more of her stuff. I have to agree with some who said the book was pretty predictable, but I read so much that most books are predictable to me, especially romances...I mean what romance book isn't predictable? Anyway, I loved that this story held a little bit of everything, romance, adeventure, betrayal, and even history. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about the Alaskan wilderness and the dangers and struggles the characters went through while living there.

All in all, this book is fabulous, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes historical Christian fiction; however, if you're not into the whole historical fiction scene, don't buy this book because you probably won't like it.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Action Christian Book 29 janvier 2010
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
First of all, I did really enjoy this book, and whipped through it fairly quickly. The book has a fair bit of action to it. The basic plot is that two siblings are living in Alaska, their old friend shows up, the girl and him have a bit of romance going on (completely PG), but this old friend is, unknown to them, thought to be a criminal. So this woman goes up to Alaska to capture him. Okay, that's the basic plot, pretty interesting and action packed. I liked the lowkey romance parts too. What I wasn't prepared for, that hardly any of the reviews mention is that the author whacks you over the head with Christianity. Every character that is even mentioned in passing has a description of their religious views. Characters who aren't firm believers are seen as having a less clear path in life than those who are. Perhaps this shock was because I haven't read much Christian fiction and I wasn't expecting it. I did find parts of it interesting when they dealt with people questioning God, but felt that future readers should be more prepared for this element of the book, since the Christian message makes up a large part of the book and explains everyone's actions. The book does leave you off at a bit of a cliffhanger, which is understandable for a series book, but I was still disappointed because unlike many other series books, this book didn't seem to even complete the story. The book ended before the story within the bigger story had been finished. Dissapointing, to say the least.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Didn't drink the Kool-Aid 15 janvier 2010
Par Katrina - Publié sur Amazon.com

Only the fact that I am constitutionally unable to stop reading a book once I have started it kept me going with this. I spent a lot of time reminding myself that it was free (I downloaded a free Kindle edition) and even that didn't help. What were my problems with it? Here goes:

For free, the book was barely acceptable as a converted document - it was full of errors and smudges and SCANNING 101 errors. If this book had been a project someone turned in for a grade, they would have failed. I can't imagine having payed money for it.

The novel itself was horrible. It started out placing characters woodenly in different locations, and then they spent a page or two talking about faith in God. Next character, next location, faith in God. Except for the "bad" character who would need converting - who could see that coming? On and on. Character, location, faith in God. Character, location, faith in God. Some unconvincing interaction, with conversation about faith in God. Very tedious.

I was really going on endurance when, about three-quarters of the way through the book, there was one passage of expository prose that was really good. It is really the central thesis of the novel. The situation is based on a previous conversation (painfully contrived), the happenstance in which the "bad" character and the good character are thrown into living together in outback Alaska for the summer (painfully contrived) and the habit of the good character of reading from the Bible every evening. These two characters discuss the concepts of justice and mercy, as illustrated by a passage from Matthew and then from their lives. This, for me, was the one really worthwhile passage in the book. It was well written, seemed to speak genuinely from the mouths of the characters, and the use of scripture and the one character's Christian identity made inherent sense. (In direct contrast to the use of dialogue laden with faith-based discourse by all other characters during the first part of the book)

The conclusion of the novel is meant to be stirring. There is more action (as in moving around of characters), and a sprinkling of scenes that rise above the level of puppetry. The book ends on a cliffhanger, but that is easily resolved by reading customer reviews of the next book - the whole story is summarized without the pain of actually reading the book.

To summarize, this book was an unpleasant introduction to a genre I had been happy unaware of. I had no idea that there were historical-romantic-mystery-thriller books written especially for Christians. With a large C. And I truly wonder why there needs to be such a separation. Is a book not worth reading if the characters don't constantly spout their devotion to their God? And is the fact that these characters do so what makes this book worth reading for some people (because clearly, some people really like this book)?

My experience reading this was that I just hadn't drunk the Kool-Aid. I wasn't in that club. And reading this certainly isn't going to change that fact.
