Published by: Bethany House

I liked Tracie Peterson's books back when I was younger, and I was excited to have the chance to read something new from her. 

In the Shadow of Denali is set in Alaska in the 1900's. I found it an interesting setting and an interesting time to read about. This is a story of family, love, and deceit.
