ISBN: 978-1936034796
Genre: Historical

A feisty young female artist with a secret past battles to establish her own gallery in gold-rush era San Francisco.

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.

JOSIAH’S TREASURE is a historical about a strong working woman who nursed Josiah Cady until his death. She inherits all his assets, but stands to lose them when Daniel Cady arrives, claiming to be Josiah’s son and legal heir.

The writing is good. Ms. Herriman has penned a good story. However I never did connect to the characters the way I would’ve liked. I didn’t particularly care who won the fight over Mr. Cady’s money. I was able to easily predict how the book would end. I didn’t find any surprises. $14.99. 310 pages.
