Josiah's Treasure

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Josiah's Treasure
Worthy Publishing (April 16, 2013)
Nancy Herriman


Nancy Herriman abandoned a career in Engineering to chase around two small children and take up the pen. She has been writing for longer than she would like to admit. Her work has been a finalist in several Romance Writers of America contests and she won the 2006 RWA Daphne du Maurier award for Best Unpublished Mystery/Romantic Suspense. In 2009, she was an ACFW Genesis finalist. She is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers and Romance Writers of America.

When she is not writing, or gabbing over lattes about writing, she is either watching history shows on cable TV or singing. She lives in the Midwest with her husband and sons, and wishes there were more hours in the day.


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.

A strong, determined woman and a man scarred by his father's abandonment collide in this engaging novel by Nancy Herriman. While the Gold Rush is officially over, the lure and lust for the wealth that gold brings remained for many in the 1880's. While Sarah only wanted to help immigrant women escape their dismal circumstances, she is thwarted at every turn, first by her reluctant landlord and then by Daniel Cady, who has come to town to reclaim the inheritance that he insists his father should have left to him and his 10-year-old twin sisters. Herriman has created characters that are easy to like, along with plenty of drama and escalating tension. The rumor of a secret stash of gold hidden in Sarah's house adds a bit of intrigue and danger to the story. I completely enjoyed this story and look forward to more from this author.
