An Award-Winning Author
The 1849 Gold Rush is no place for a refined young woman on her own, but Quinn MacCann plans to become a businesswoman, independent and capable of earning her own way. To escape her wealthy but abusive father with her inherited dowry intact, Quinn marries a stranger - a man so new to the area, her powerful father doesn't control him yet - but freedom and independence are more costly than she imagined. With her hopes and dreams buried deep by secrets, she flees to California's gold country, a rugged man's land where only the strong survive. Battling blackmail, fraud, and deception, Quinn must face the most divisive lie of all - her own.
