She's always determined to be the stable, reliable one. But now her commitment may destroy her.
On the surface, Whitney Powell is happy working with her sled dogs and welcoming the new additions to her family through her sisters' marriages and an upcoming birth. But her life is full of complications, including an estranged father, that have her on the edge of losing control. Growing up, she was the strong sister, and she can't give that up now.
When villagers in outlying areas come down with a horrible sickness, Dr. Peter Cameron turns to Whitney and her dogs for help navigating the deep snow, and they become close while ministering to the sick together. Peter has long recognized her finer qualities but is troubled by the emotions and secrets she keeps buried within. He wants to help but wonders if she is more of a risk than his heart can take.

This conclusion to the Treasures of Nome series tied up all the loose ends quite nicely.
Whitney’s story was filled with pain and brokenness. And despite her hatred of her father’s addiction, she had come to rely on the tonic the doctor had given her for her headaches and that reliance turned to a need for more …
I loved Peter, the doctor who has such compassion for all the people of Alaska, regardless of their heritage. He was so selfless in his service. I especially appreciated the manner in which he was willing to confront Whitney and still show himself a friend.
A strong thread of faith runs through the story. Whitney’s thoughts that God didn’t care about her were challenged and corrected in a lovely way
