Editorial Reviews


“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, author of the Washington Post bestselling novel The Beantown Girls

“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, bestselling author of The House by the Lake

3.0 out of 5 stars 2.5 rounded up to 3 because it got exciting towards the end
By Paper paige on December 1, 2019
The writing style and dialogue was extremely dry. The first half which details their trip to Dawson City was really boring. I thought that would be the exciting part, but it wasn't until Anna reached Dawson City and the drama between her and her fiance ensued that the plot started to pick up the pace; moving slow rather than dragging. There was a small twist at 65% (on a kindle) but it the plot still continued to be isn't until 86% that anything of great interest occurs.

Historically, there is mention and a brief memory of the Battle of Wounded Knee. Women's inequality is discussed and seen throughout Anna's journey. The overall atmosphere for the time period in this novel is very bleak. I was expecting to learn a lot about the gold rush in Alaska, but I didn't learn a lot in this novel.

Technical notes--Anna begins her journey on a ship to Skagaway for the first 10% (on a Kindle). Their stay and encampment at Skagway is detailed from 10-20%. At 20%, they reach the Dyea settlement, and at 21% they begin the Chilkhoot Trail. The Chilkhoot Trail is detailed from 21-45% and on the trail they stop at Canyon City, Sheep Camp, and the Scales. Anna reaches Dawson at 45% and the remainder of the novel happens there focusing on the romance.

It is true to the blurb...a young girl named Anna is escorted to Dawson City by two men because her father has sold her as a bride to pay of his debt. She is sold to a wealthy man who has made his fortune off of the gold rush and is called "King of the Klondike". Along the way, several people doubt her ability as a woman to make the journey. Anna then falls in love with another, but knows she must stay with her fiance in order to secure her families survival.

Initially, I was going to give this two stars, but because the ending did provide some sort of stimulating redemption I gave it 2.5 and rounded to 3. I was very disappointed since I really enjoyed his other novels.
