Finland, 1910: Fifteen-year-old Sig is shocked to see a hole in the frozen lake outside his family's cabin and to find his father's corpse nearby. Why did Einar steer his dog sled across the lake instead of taking the safer land route? Sig's sister and stepmother go for help, leaving Sig alone with Einar's body in the cabin. Soon after, an armed stranger barges in, demanding a share of Einar's stolen gold from when the two men knew each other during the Alaska Gold Rush.

Puzzle Pieces

The ending is perhaps too tidy and convenient, but the book is almost like a puzzle and it is quite satisfying to see all the pieces come together at the end. Pay close attention to details while reading this book, and you just might solve the puzzle first!

Really Good

It was really good. I liked the way the author sort of skipped inbetween the present and the past. The main character is instantly likable. It's a really interesting storyline. But there are parts of it that can't exactly be explained the way the story is set up. But overall, very good. 4.5 out of 5 stars.
