Christy Award finalist Deeanne Gist pens a compelling bestseller that portrays Rachel Van Buren's efforts to escape the gold-rush quagmire of 1849 San Francisco with her high moral principles intact. Rachel is shocked with this mud-infested boomtown where the only females are of ill repute. When saloon owner Johnnie Parker-widower and former missionary-lets her stay in his unoccupied shanty, she agrees to cook and clean. But Rachel soon struggles with their growing attraction. "Gist's Western romance features lively dialog and . humor."-Library Journal

Professional reviews

"Julia Gibson portrays boomtown San Francisco during the California Gold Rush with textured characterizations and lightly accented enunciations. In a soft, cultured voice she portrays the proper 20-year-old Rachel Van Buren, who is determined to provide a home for her younger brother and sister after their father's sudden death. At the same time, she seeks to understand her own mystifying but undeniable attraction to Johnnie Parker, the town's saloon keeper. In a voice that captures excitement, humor, and anxiety, Gibson depicts Rachel's spiritual struggles as she confronts both her feelings and a wild, ribald city without female refinements. Gibson's crisp diction matches the romantic tension in this wholesome love story. G.D.W. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
