This sequel to Bo at Ballard Creek (2013) continues the adventures of Bo and her “two papas,” Alaskan gold miners in the late 1920s.
Bo’s outsized dads, who adopted her in infancy, are loving and hardworking. The conclusion of the first novel saw the family welcoming another child and relocating. In their new town they meet generous, kindly (with one exception) neighbors of various ethnicities. The children explore, make new friends and begin home-schooling.
