Product Description

Rachel van Buren arrives in Gold Rush San Francisco with two wishes: to protect her younger siblings and to return east as soon as possible. Both goals prove more difficult than she could imagine as her brother and sister are lured by the city's dangerous freedom and a missionary-turned-gambler stakes a claim on her heart. Rachel won't give up without a fight though, and soon all will learn an eloquent but humorous lesson about what truly makes a lady.

Publisher's Description

Rachel van Buren arrives in Gold Rush San Francisco with two wishes: to protect her younger siblings and to return east as soon as possible. Both goals prove more difficult than she could imagine as her brother and sister are lured by the city's dangerous freedom and a missionary-turned-gambler stakes a claim on her heart. Rachel won't give up without a fight though, and soon all will learn an eloquent but humorous lesson about what truly makes a lady.

Speak Politely. Even when you're the only respectable woman around, protesting the decadence of a city lost to gold fever.

Dress Modestly. Wear your sunbonnet at all times. Ensure nobody sees your work boots muddied by the San Francisco streets.

Remain Devoted to Family. Protect your siblings from the lures of the city, even against their wishes.

Stand Above Reproach. Most difficult when a wonderful man turns out to be a saloon owner.

Rise Above Temptation. No, not even just a little kiss....

When these rules become increasingly difficult to uphold, can Rachel Van Buren remain a beacon of virtue in a city of vice?

    Exciting, Sizzling, yet very appropriate

    I have read and reread this book several times, most recently this month. I love how the author takes issues that seem black and white to Rachel, the protagonist, and makes her look at them again in the light of scripture and God's love for sinners. It has enough sizzle in it to keep me interested, but is totally appropriate for teaching my fourteen year old about modesty and the male psyche. (I would not recommend the book for readers younger than fourteen because of the details of a prostitute's life.) The characters are very well developed. The good ones have some moments of failure, and the "bad" ones some insights into spiritual things. Although the setting is different, I can relate to Rachel's expectations not matching her reality and having to ask God for his wisdom.

    Okay, it was a great read. It was amazing how many ordeals the main character had to deal with. But I truly loved the final message. We all tend to, as Christians, at times, behave like Pharisees, putting levels to sin so that we feel comfortable with who we are. But this story gives great insight into loving those who are family members or acquainteces that go astray into things we know go against the Word of God and how we face those in the love of God. Loved the over all objective here.

    I did not want to put this book down. But at times I had to because the emotional tensions were so tangible. I like how the author shows how a man is affected when he is around a female that he is sexually attracted to. He understood to keep his distance, and so did the main character. Girls need to understand how it is most necessary to not help a man to want to fall into temptation. Girls think they are "working" it so that they keep a man's attention by doing certain things that may visually keep a guy looking but may also pull him over the edge, even if the girl never meant for him to go that far with her.

    This is the second book I have read by this author. I will definitely read more.
