Abstract:

The scene of this novel, which tells the tragic love story of Tamsin MacDonald, a ruddy-haired, freckled, and sturdy heroine of Scottish ancestry, and Kirk Regard, is laid on the Yukon. Tamsin and Kirk fall in love as children and are found kissing by Kirk's father by adoption, who thrashes Kirk. This lesson brutalizes him for life and when older he goes after many women, but always returns to Tamsin. After one affair he kills the husband Olafssen in self-defence, and in a panic he conceals the body. This killing lies like a shadow across his life. Later he tries to marry Tamsin, but once more his father intervenes. How suspicion for the murder of Olafssen turns at last towards Kirk, how Tamsin persuades him to go to Dawson City to confess and what happens in the end must be left for the reader to discover.
