When Karin Myre, a Norwegian seamstress's assistant, catches the excitement of the Klondike Gold Rush, she decides to head north, but how?
Impulsively, she sneaks on board one of the ships in Seattle's harbor only to find herself trapped in the hold.
But her rescue from the captain and a fate worse than death by a determined young prospector begins her honest search for true gold.
TRUE GOLD is a novel that spans several genres. It is quite readable as a historical romance set during the Klondike Gold Rush of the 1890s, but it is primarily a historical adventure and is part of a family saga which includes time travel in the other stories, starting with REPEATING HISTORY and continued in the sequels HOMESICK, and FINDING HOME.
