A dynamic new fiction series from the author of The Wedding Dress
Author Marian Wells has shown remarkable ability to both capture the hearts of readers and challenge them with a strong spiritual message. Colorado Gold begins a new historical fiction series, Treasure Quest, with an intriguing story set in the West when "gold fever" was at its height.
Amy Randolph, a young lady from the east, has moved to a lonely Colorado mining town with her father, an itinerant evangelist. On the threshold of womanhood and having lost her mother as a child, Amy longs for an understanding mother-figure to guide her steps. But she feels more lost than ever being now separated from the familiar comforts of the East.
The Christianity she had grown up with seems unreal in their new surroundings. Her strong desire to play the piano, even if it means learning from a dance hall girl, lures her into a double standard. Her confusion is multiplied when she and her friend Daniel are misjudged and find themselves in a compromised situation.
Set against the rigors of life in the West, this story's message involves forgiveness and restoration of families--a marvelous redemptive theme.
