Sarah Whittier loves to paint and dreams of opening her own art studio
in order to help several girls who come from difficult situations. After
all Sarah knows what's it like to be in a difficult situation and to
make foolish decisions. That was her life until the kindness of Josiah
Cady. He left her some money and his home on Nob Hill. Then Josiah's
son, Daniel, shows up. His anger burns against a father who left to hunt
for gold and never returned. Now Sarah finds her inheritance challenged
by him. Daniel and Sarah are drawn to each other but are at a
stand-off. All she's planned just might be lost. Then rumors spread of
gold nuggets being hidden in the house and it endangers Sarah's life.
Daniel finds himself wanting to protect her. Sarah's torn by her
feelings for Daniel. A guy who will likely steal her dreams. Will all be
lost for Sarah? Will Daniel find peace in getting what is rightfully
Josiah's Treasure was an enjoyable story with very likable
characters. It's setting was San Francisco during the gold rush era in
1882. I enjoyed getting to know Sarah. She was a very refined woman but
had lots of backbone! Daniel is really a great guy. I liked that he was
torn in his decisions about what to do. It was very realistic. Though
this is not a fast-paced story, it does move along at a steady pace, all
the while spurring the reader on to find the answer as to why Josiah
never returned home to his family. You'll see the greed of man, the
ugliness of sin and unforgiveness, how love and mercy can change a life
and how God is faithful even when we're not. If you enjoy a good
historical with a touch of romance then check out Josiah's Treasure.

I'm a mom to three grown boys, a daughter-in-love and wife of 30 years to a great guy. I love coffee and reading and reviewing books. I am what you might call a "bookaholic". (Even more than that...a Kindleholic!) I also love to shop the thrift stores for interesting treasures! I appreciate the authors I know and love but I also like finding new authors and making new author friends.
