ABOUT THE BOOK
In 1882, Sarah Whittier dreams of opening an art studio run by immigrant women. She plans to use the house left to her by family friend Josiah Cady as collateral for her studio. But will all be lost when the inheritance is challenged by an angry man claiming to be Josiah's son and legal heir? Rumor of gold nuggets hidden in the house, place Sarah's life in danger. Her future uncertain and her safety threatened, Sarah has nowhere to turn. That is, unless she can soften a vengeful man's heart-and they both learn that love is finer than any gold.

MY REVIEW-I was interested in reading this new novel by Nancy Herriman. I have yet to read her debut novel, it is on my wish list, and this cover just made me want to dive right in. The plot of this book involves a young woman, Sarah, who has been through a lot but was rescued by an older man named Josiah. When he dies, he passes on his house and money to Sarah. She is planning on using the house and money to help young ladies learn the art of painting in a studio. All of a sudden she is confronted by a young man who claims to be Josiah's son. Meaning all the things that Josiah left to her would go to him and she would be left with nothing! Daniel, Josiah's son, is a bitter and angry man who wants the money his father promised to send back from the gold fields. He has no wish to turn the girls out of the home, but nor does he want to give them the house and money that is rightfully his. This is a book I enjoyed reading that will keep you turning pages. It is not a thriller or even very exciting, but good enough to keep you reading. Loved it!!
