I enjoyed this story, even though I thought the tone of the story was a little too preachy at the end. There was also a subplot with a couple of the characters from the previous books being caught in San Francisco during the time of the 1906 earthquake that while interesting, did not seem to add anything to the story. It was a nice wrap up to the series, but my favorite book of the series was actually the 2nd one, Morning's Refrain.
The focus of this third and last book of the Song of Alaska series focuses on Lydia's daughter Britta, now 24 years old. Britta had left Sitka, Alaska, six years before in 1900, to distance herself from Yuri, the love of her life, when he married another woman. She has a passion for music, and has traveled the world while playing her violin. She comes home for a visit after being offered a position in a prestigious orchestra, and also a marriage proposal from the man who offered her the job.Upon her return to Sitka, a tragedy occurs, and she finds herself caring for Yuri's children, and she finds herself falling in love with the children, and she also begins to have hope for a life with Yuri again, but is she willing to give up her dream of a coveted position in the orchestra, and her chance to continue traveling the world?
