CFBA Review: Josiah's Treasure by:Nancy Herriman

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Josiah's Treasure
Worthy Publishing (April 16, 2013)
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a finalist in several Romance Writers of America contests and she won the 2006 RWA Daphne du Maurier award for Best Unpublished Mystery/Romantic Suspense.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.

My Review:
The 1880's found many women down on their luck, such was so for Sarah Whittier. In the beginning of the book it begins with Sarah headed to the Pomroy Real Estate Associates building again to try and secure the lease on a store front that she plans on making into a custom art studio. Mr. Pomroy allows her six months to try and do something with this property that Josiah left her when he passed away. Josiah had been like a father to her but he was gone now and she had to try and make something out of herself and the newly acquired property.

Meanwhile, Daniel Cady is new in town trying to locate his long, lost father. His father had struck it rich out west and never returned home to his family. He isn't wanting anything from his father. He just wants some financial help with his siblings.

Sarah puts up her house as collateral for the store front so Sarah better make this work or she will lose everything. Little does she know Mr. Daniel Cady can help her out with it all.
