As elegant as the Sacramento residence she operates, Isabelle Labrie keeps her past concealed, like the treasure she hides under the Golden Hotel. It’s 1853, the heyday of the California Gold Rush. Isabelle is full of hope, staking her claim on the city’s refined clientele and her future on a sweetheart’s promise to marry her when he returns from the gold fields. Then, unexpected guests—fugitive slaves seeking safe passage to the North—force her to confront her past and reconsider her path.
While Isabelle learns to trust God’s provisions, a law student in Virginia must confront his father’s cruelty and rescue a young slave from his family’s tobacco plantation. As the two escape to freedom, and Isabelle risks everything to harbor runaway slaves, the past and present are set on an inevitable collision course—one that reveals hidden treasures of the heart.

“My desire,” Melanie says, “is that the stories God has etched in my heart will give readers a glimpse of His love and grace, even when they don’t understand His plan.”
The former corporate publicity manager at Focus on the Family and owner of Dobson Media Group, Melanie now writes full-time.

When she isn’t hiking, practicing yoga, or reading with her girls, Melanie loves to explore old cemeteries and ghost towns.
“Beneath a Golden Veil captivated me from the beginning, from the brave souls in Virginia who dared to escape slavery to those who embraced freedom along the dusty streets of promise in Sacramento City. Once again, Melanie Dobson has taken me on a journey that touched my heart. I could not put it down…it’s that good!” —Ann Menke, author of Exposure to a Billionaire
