About: Can Olivia survive the crime and Gold Rush fever of 1849…and the countless marriage proposals?
A series for fans of all things related to history, romance, adventure, faith, and family trees.
The Daughters of the Mayflower series continues when Olivia Brighton finds herself widowed and working her brother’s restaurant in San Francisco during the height of the rush for gold. Even though she receives at least twenty marriage proposals a day, she will never marry a gold miner. Her brother’s friend Joseph Sawyer has gotten caught up in local politics and the plight of Chinese in forced labor. The more Joseph gets pulled into investigating crime in the city, the less Olivia sees of the compassionate man. And just when she thinks she could love again, a fire threatens to steal all hope.
Genre: Historical, Christian, romance, fiction.
My Rating: 4 stars.
My Recommendation: 13 up.
My Favorite Character/s: Joseph was so surprisingly deep with a kind and sweet attitude. He was so kind and yet tough without being boring or too overprotective.
My Verse for Joseph is Mark 4:31
It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth: (King James Version.)
Olivia was a sweet heroine and I really liked her reaction with the pie. 😉
My Verse for Olivia is Proverbs 3:5
5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. (King James Version.)
Then there’s Daniel! He’s the kind, protective, Christian, older, kinder brother. He’s also the comic relief . . . The guy that also picks the wrong time to interrupt — on purpose.
My Verse for Daniel is Proverbs 17:22
A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones. (King James Version.)
My Thoughts: The books in this series have been so interesting! The history and feeling in this book was so spot on and I liked the plot though the ending was a little fast for me. And as of now Kimberley Woodhouse is a need to read author, I’ve enjoyed each of her books that I’ve read and look forward to reading more!
Warnings: There is some human-trafficking, and a boy is beaten by a man, as well as slavery.
I received this book in exchange for my honest review and am truly happy to provide it!
