Toward the Midnight Sun

(2020)
A novel by

 
 
From the bestselling author of White Rose, Black Forest comes a page-turning epic of adventure, suspense, and romance set against the rich and ruthless backdrop of the Klondike gold rush.

Seattle, 1897. Anna Denton is not like the other prospectors traveling to the Yukon on the promise of riches. It’s duty—not profit—that calls her into the wild unknown. With her family nearing financial ruin, Anna has agreed to marry Henry Bradwell, the wealthy King of the Klondike.

She meets Will and Silas, childhood friends, on the steamer north. After the ship docks in a lawless Alaska town, Anna’s chaperones run afoul of local criminals, leaving her stranded. Will and Silas agree to escort her the hundreds of treacherous miles to Dawson City—the gateway to the goldfields—and her betrothed, a man she doesn’t know.

Upon their arrival, Bradwell warmly welcomes them all. But as a brutal winter sets in, relations sour, and Anna is caught between the promise her family made to the power-hungry Bradwell and her feelings for Will. Anna and her companions soon find themselves in a deadly game where few can be trusted and where the greatest danger in the frozen wilderness of the Klondike is man himself.

Praise for this book

"Cancel your plans! Toward the Midnight Sun kept me reading half the night. Beginning with an epic journey through a pristine yet savage wilderness, and set against the backdrop of the mighty gold rush, Anna, Will, and Silas’s adventure comes to a dramatic crescendo that almost stopped my heart. Fine storytelling, well researched, a triumph of the human spirit. I am certain that readers will love Dempsey’s new book." - Ella Carey

"A gorgeously written novel that has all the elements of terrific historical fiction: adventure, romance, danger, and an unforgettable heroine, as well as a unique and beautifully depicted setting—in this case, the breathtaking, untamed terrain of the Yukon during the Klondike Gold Rush. I can’t recommend it enough!" - Jane Healey
