When Lucinda Martin York arrives in California at the beginning of the gold rush, she is alone and destitute, but holding fast to her dream of becoming one of the first women doctors. She’s willing to do whatever it takes to achieve her goal.

George Arnold has a dream of his own, one he left his family and friends behind to pursue, one that will make him a key investor in California’s golden future. He’s willing to sacrifice everything for his goal.

Although their dreams are divergent, Lucinda and George team together for survival in the mining town of Diggers Flat. They grow close as they deal with thieves, fire, and tragedy, but in the end, it is their very dreams that may tear them apart.

What reviewers are saying about Gold Rush Girl

Rich in historical detail, the reader will come to understand the panning process and get a glimpse of what is was like to pan out in the goldfields. I felt it very interesting to look into the early daguerreotype and picture taking process along with learning about the developing of the plates with mercury vapors.

Having recently watched the mini series Klondike, I can easily see this story being made into a mini series as well. It reminded me of the made for tv movies by director Michael Landon Jr. A good, clean, and well written historical read for any older middle grades and up. Looking forward to book 2 and the continuing story of Lucinda, Luke, George and the rest of the cast of characters. ~~~Book Review Preview
