Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gist follows her popular A Bride Most Begrudging (2005) with a -damsel-in-distress tale set in 1849 San Francisco, where Rachel Van Buren is marooned when her gold-crazed father dies. Rachel must also care for her two young siblings. She finds a city filled with mud and sin, and there is no other decent woman, or "sunbonnet," in residence. She'll have to adjust her straitlaced outlook or die, and adjust she does in this amusing, often almost titillating tale brimming with period detail. John Mort

Review

"A very powerful novel...It sizzles... [Ms. Gist is] a very gifted [writer] indeed." -- Once Upon a Romance.net

"Gist’s imagery is believable and her characters strong... The blossoming romance is sure to cause a giggle." -- Romantic Times, June 2006

"If you enjoyed A Bride Most Begrudging, you're sure to enjoy this one as well!... 4.5 out of 5!" -- Jezreel Cohen, FaithWriters.net
