Josiah's Treasure Book Review CFBA Blog Tour

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Josiah's Treasure
Worthy Publishing (April 16, 2013)
Nancy Herriman


Nancy Herriman abandoned a career in Engineering to chase around two small children and take up the pen. She has been writing for longer than she would like to admit. Her work has been a finalist in several Romance Writers of America contests and she won the 2006 RWA Daphne du Maurier award for Best Unpublished Mystery/Romantic Suspense. In 2009, she was an ACFW Genesis finalist. She is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers and Romance Writers of America.

When she is not writing, or gabbing over lattes about writing, she is either watching history shows on cable TV or singing. She lives in the Midwest with her husband and sons, and wishes there were more hours in the day.


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 by Nancy Herrimanm is a delightful read and one of my favorites of the year thus far!

Any story about life in during the California Gold Rush interests me. Throw in a talented artist, a money seeking young man, and a dangerous "villian" set in San Fransico and I am hooked. I enjoyed the characters, the setting, and the entire story line. It is a sweet love story between two very stubborn people. Sarah has a compassionate heart for the young women in need that fill the city. She finally has the money to fulfill her dream and take care of these women when Josiah's son shows up and changes everything. Knowing that she might lose her home, her art studio, and her dream, she pushes forward. The plot kept twisting in a new way that made it more interesting than what I was expecting. The author wrote an excellent work of fiction!

Josiah's Treasure is simply a fun light read that I definitely recommend!
