Josiah's Treasure by Nancy Herriman

Inheritances can be really messy things...

When Daniel Cady knocks on Sarah Whittier's door one evening declaring himself the rightful heir to everything-- including the home left to her by her friend and employer Josiah Cady her plans for her future are threatened to the core.

Why did Josiah fail to tell her that his children were alive and well and living in Chicago? His son Daniel is understandably upset and wants what belongs to him and his sisters, but Sarah is committed to helping young women leave dangerous situations by establishing a design studio where they can make a living legitimately.

Other nefarious types also want a piece of the action. It is rumored that Josiah has hidden a fortune in gold nuggets somewhere on the premises...

Nancy Herriman writes of life in 1880's San Francisco following the Gold Rush with clarity and warmth, love and danger. If I squint a bit I could see this made into an MGM movie classic musical (just for fun)... If only they made em' like they used to.

This one's a real gem! Please read on for more from the publisher. (Worthy Publishing)

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a finalist in several Romance Writers of America contests and she won the 2006 RWA Daphne du Maurier award for Best Unpublished Mystery/Romantic Suspense.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