Josiah's Treasure - A Review

Sarah Whittier is an aspiring young artist who has been blessed with an inheritance from a man who took her in and loved her like a daughter. She dreams of helping poor immigrant women make their way in the world in a career that isn't working in a factory or on the streets. Daniel Cady arrives in San Fransisco to find the father that abandoned him and his sisters years before. He doesn't realize that his father has died and left all he had to Sarah. As he gets to know Sarah, his thirst for revenge and justice fade away and he finds himself captivated by the young woman with the big heart. When a rumor surfaces of gold in the house, Sarah is in danger and Daniel will do all he can to protect her. Will the pair discover what the true treasure is?

This is the first book I've read by Nancy Herriman. It started off slow and I was easily distracted from it. But as I persisted in reading it, I soon became caught up in the drama between Sarah and Daniel. I found that both of these two were extremely stubborn and passionate. Watching how they grew and changed throughout the book showed that the characters had depth to them. I'm pretty sure that I have some of the other books this author has written on my to-be-read list, and those books will be moving up the list!

I received the Kindle version of this book for free from Worthy Publishing via NetGalley for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
