From the Editor

Eoin Dempsey writes the type of historical fiction I relish—cinematic, sweeping, and full of adventure and romance. Toward the Midnight Sun is no exception. Set against the Klondike gold rush of the late 1800s, Dempsey’s novel brings to vivid life this fascinating era in which the promise of riches lured throngs of prospectors to treacherous—and relatively uncharted—territory. People from all walks of life fell under the spell of the gold, yet only a few were able to survive the merciless journey.

When Anna Denton and her traveling partners, Will Leary and Silas Oliver, arrive in Dawson City, they assume the worst is behind them. Yet while the boomtown provides the creature comforts they previously lacked, they quickly realize it—and the glittering goldfields beyond—promise a different kind of danger. Soon they find themselves up against the person behind the prevailing corruption, the King of the Klondike—a man not used to being challenged.

What results is a page-turning epic that will keep you in suspense. Anna, Will, and Silas are tested physically in ways they never thought possible; however, their biggest challenge is of a more personal nature and will put everything—and everyone—they value most at stake. After all, the riches of the Klondike weren’t always measured in gold.

- Chris Werner, Editor

Product description


"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

Product Description

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.
