Nancy Herriman has crafted main characters with a believable balance of flaws and endearing characteristics. Having been deeply hurt by people who should have been trustworthy, Sarah and Daniel are out to right the wrongs dealt them, even at high cost to themselves and others. Only when they allow the Lord to work in their hearts and lives can they move beyond the pain of their pasts and enjoy the future He has for them.
Herriman does a wonderful job bringing San Francisco of 1882 to life. One can almost hear the clanging of the streetcars as they traverse the steep hills of the City by the Bay and smell the salty sea air. Herriman weaves in a thread of mystery that keeps one guessing what the outcome will be, wondering if anyone will be hurt when lives are threatened, and asking themselves how a rumored treasure will affect the future happiness of Sarah and Daniel.
Following a gentle start, the story picks up the pace, building gradually until one is flipping pages, eager to reach the end. While I was rooting for Sarah and Daniel to get together, being a die-hard romantic, I would have enjoyed a smidge more romance. Even so, I heaved a satisfied sigh at the conclusion of the story, happy with how Herriman tied up the loose ends and solved the mystery of the treasure that had put Sarah in peril at times. Readers of inspirational historical romance are sure to enjoy Josiah's Treasure.
The only reservation I have about this story is the romance. The romantic yearnings in their thoughts are sweet, but I would have liked to have seen those thoughts more verbally communicated. Otherwise, I enjoyed this book tremendously.
