McCall Hawkins is just beginning to feel the desire to live again after the sudden deaths of his wife and daughter four years before. He knows he must go on, but meeting Charity Sinclair throws his world in to a twist. Call finds himself starting to feel, to desire, to want things he does not believe he should have. His survivor's guilt is made even worse when spends more time with Charity and begins back on his business life.
Charity has left behind a very successful life to pan for gold in the Yukon. She feels at home there, and finding Call makes her world even better. Fighting with Call's past, and the threats that his past brings, she finds she loves him, but she still returns to Manhattan instead of fighting for him.
Some interesting concepts and thoughts. Not sure about the inheridited memories. Seems like a little too much thrown in to the story. Overall, the story works. A little long in spots, but overall ok.
