It’s 1849 and when Sarah’s Papa and brother strike out for gold, she is stuck at home to help take care of the family and farm. This task quickly turns dangerous as the Gold Rush rises in frenzy around them. Neighbors abandon their livestock and the family must fend off half-started miners ready to steal everything they have. Sarah decides to turn her circumstances into a business feeding the miners in exchange for gold and labor. Sarah’s ingenuity and leadership are tested as she faces thieves, mysteries, and violent miners. Trouble closes in on all sides, and Sarah must make tough decisions on her own. Soon Sarah learns that true treasure is not always gold, and that the greatest adventures can happen without even leaving home.

I enjoyed this story. I liked how Sarah took initiative and created something useful out of what she had. It’s about bravery, hard work and family. I like how the family trusted the Lord to take care of them.
It has a bit of adventure, mystery mixed inro the story of a young girl and her family creating a life during the time of miners digging for hold.
I received this book from the publisher to read and give my honest opinion.
I recommend this book to my family and friends.
