News that gold has been discovered in Canada's Yukon Territory is rapidly spreading through the United States and its territories. And the route that gets you there from Alaska is the Golden Stairs. In the spring of 1898, nineteen-year-old Livia Bray and her mother, Martha, set out to find their missing father and husband, Weldon, who left six months ago to seek his fortune. Her heart just broken, Livia does not expect to meet anyone like Matt Holden on the Golden Stairs. But Matt saves Livia's life during an avalanche and leads her to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Livia also finds true love in him...but will she and her mother find her father dead or alive?
