Josiah's Treasure

(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a finalist in several Romance Writers of America contests and she won the 2006 RWA Daphne du Maurier award for Best Unpublished Mystery/Romantic Suspense.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.

My thoughts:

Both Sarah and Daniel have their sights on Josiah Cady's estate, and both have noble goals guiding their pursuits, but what lengths will each of them go to claim it as their own. As they move toward a suitable solution for all involved, we find that it's not what you have but what you give that makes a fulfilling life.

I've not read any of Nancy's books before but found this to be an engaging story with lots of great characters, a bit of suspense, and even a few chuckles. If you are a fan of historical fiction be sure to get yourself a copy of this book.

My sincerest thanks to CFBA and Worthy Publishing for generously providing a copy for review.
