    A sublime historical read. Herriman doesn't just create images with her words, she creates scents and sounds as well. I love becoming so immersed in a story that it becomes my reality for a time; a perfect escape from my harried life and all its concerns. God bless authors like Nancy Herriman who lovingly carry me away into literary respite!

    This compelling read really got my dander up in more than a few scenes. The author addresses the plight of women grappling with poverty in previous centuries. So many closed doors and prejudices keep the frustrating circle running full tilt. This background, and Sarah's passion for helping the immigrant women she accepts responsibility for makes for an invigorating, thought-provoking read.

    And I loved the gnarly romance that starts out with two people making incorrect assumptions on the character and life of the other. That's another kind of prejudice that is also addressed -- making snap judgements and then treating people accordingly. Let's just say that lots of humble pie was served before the story reaches its conclusion.

    A captivating and intense plot which includes a thread of suspense kept me committed to discovering the truth behind Josiah's treasure. And oh, bliss, the conclusion didn't disappoint. I just loved this book and I'm willing to bet you will too!

    Nancy Herriman in her new book, "Josiah's Treasure" published by Worthy Publishing brings us into the lives of Sarah Whittier and Daniel Cady.

    From the back cover: in 1880′s San Francisco, Gold builds fortunes. And sometimes shatters dreams.

    Daniel Cady has been searching for the father who struck it rich out West and never returned to his family. Daniel isn't looking for the man's love, and he's not offering forgiveness. All he wants is cold retribution. In the form of cash.

    Years ago, a scandalous love affair ostracized artist Sarah Whittier from her family. In San Francisco, she has built a new life out of audacity, talent and an old man's generosity. The house Josiah Cade left her is about all she owns. A house that is collateral for her dearest aspiration- a custom art studio run by immigrant women. They're her family now, and she'll do whatever it takes for them to succeed.

    But when Daniel Cady arrives in town claiming he's the legal heir, Sarah faces eviction...and the resurrection of dangerous rumors that the house contains hidden gold. Her future uncertain and her safety threatened, Sarah has nowhere to turn. Unless she can soften a vengeful man's heart, and they both learn that love is a greater treasure than gold.

    All Sarah wants to do is put her past behind her and succeed for her success guarantees the success of the immigrant women that have become her family since her own family wants no part of her. Daniel Cady is looking for his father who abandoned him and the rest of the family to go West to look for gold. All Daniel wants is a part of that gold as recompense for what his father took from him. Now Sarah and Daniel are clashing over the one thing that belonged to Josiah and that both of them want, his house. "Josiah's Treasure" is all about family, the one we are born into and the one we make for ourselves in the world. This is about pain from our past that is causing us to make our present decisions and how healing of that pain can cause us to make new decisions. It is also a wonderful romance. Ms. Herriman has done an outstanding job of bringing Sarah and Daniel to life on these pages. We root for them to overcome their traumas and for their relationship to succeed. If you are looking for history you will find it here. If you are looking for a really good romance you will find it here. I liked this book and am really looking forward to more stories from Nancy Herriman.

    Sarah Whittier has just acquired the lease to develop her art design studio, where she will train and employ young women with no other honourable options in 1882 San Francisco. But all her plans might come to nothing: not only is she having trouble finding investors for her studio, but there is a rumour of treasure in the house she recently inherited which has incited a break-in, and she may lose her house to a stranger.

    Daniel Cady has spent months locating the father who abandoned him, his mother and his two young sisters nine years ago. But instead of finding his father, he finds Josiah is dead and an attractive young woman with high ideals has inherited the estate, not his children: apparently, Josiah believed his family was dead.

    It's not really made clear why Sarah has to go bowing and scraping to find investors for her art studio, given that she has just inherited an estate worth thousands (even if there isn't a lot of ready cash, there is a property to use as collateral). And the early chapters of Josiah's Treasure allude to Sarah's history in a way that makes it feel as though this is a sequel when it is not (I checked, because it really felt as though there was a background that I was supposed to know).

    But the story evens out as Sarah and Daniel work together to determine who is trying to break in to the house, find the truth to the rumours that Josiah left a fortune in gold hidden in the house, as well as discovering a mutual attraction. I liked Daniel but didn't really relate to Sarah. Without having the background as to why she wanted to save and train the girls for her art studio, she came across as too cliché in her apparent perfection, and we didn't see any change in her lack of faith in God. We were told she had not changed, but not shown that change, and that was a definite weakness. Enjoyable, but rather predictable.

    Josiah's Treasure by Nancy Herriman was a most enjoyable historical novel that was also filled with a great deal of inspiration. In San Francisco in 1882, Sarah Whittier has a desire to open an art studio that will be run by immigrant women who have a talent for art or a talent for running the business. She has been the caretaker and companion of Josiah Cady who amassed a fortune in the gold fields and at his death he left everything to Sarah. Josiah rescued Sarah from her past and loved her like a daughter and he left everything to her for he thought that all his family was dead and he died never knowing the truth. Daniel Cady, Josiah's son, finally arrived in San Francisco from Chicago after a lengthy search to find his father. He thinks that his father deserted the family and is determined to take the inheritance from Sarah. Daniel is very bitter toward his father but when the truth is finally revealed as to why Josiah left his fortune to Sarah instead of his family, he decides that he must help Sarah and try to keep her safe after rumors circulate in the town that gold nuggets are hidden in the house. Daniel knows that overturning his father's will is going to be difficult, but after meeting Sarah his heart is torn between caring for his twin sisters and the attraction he is starting to feel for Sarah.

    The author did an excellent job writing the story with a well plotted mystery and lots of exciting action. The characters were so well done that they seemed to leap off the page and become real. I thoroughly enjoyed the romance in the story as the author took us on a journey of faith for both Sarah and Daniel. Both had fought to find faith and then worked to keep it and not lose it when troubles came. In their search for the hidden gold, they both found that the greatest treasure to be found in life was love. The story was very inspiration and gave me something to think about after the story was finished.

    I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes an historical novel set in the West in the nineteenth century, has a really good romance story line, a great deal of mystery, and that is also a Christian story.

    I received this book free from Worthy Publishing and Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

    Nancy Herriman has crafted an endearing story with a thread of intrigue and mystery wound through it. It's set in San Francisco in the 1800s, and I enjoyed her descriptions of the city's sights and sounds. I didn't quite know what to expect as I had never read a book by Nancy, but I found it to be a well written, compelling story.

    Throughout the book the characters learn the importance of forgiveness and how to let go of the bitterness they've been holding onto. It's not a quick or easy process which I appreciated because in real life it's not either. As they come to rediscover their relationship with God they are able to gradually let go of the bitterness and hurt and forgive even when it's not reciprocated or asked for.

    I received this book from Netgalley and Worthy Publishing for the purpose of an honest review. My opinion is my own. Thank you Worthy Publishing.
