Reviews - What do customers think about Josiah's Treasure?

Wonderful historical novel  Jan 30, 2015
What a great story! As I was reading, I felt like I was right there in 1882 San Francisco. I smelled, heard, and saw the city right along with the characters. I could feel Anne's fears, Daniel's annoyance and Lottie's optimism. Josiah's Treasure is a joy to read.

I like Sarah, the main female character, because she is a champion for women who find themselves in hopeless circumstances. She is determined to follow her plan despite huge obstacles-- the main one being that she is a woman. I didn't want to like Daniel, but eventually was coaxed into doing so, despite his objective. The secondary characters add much depth and interest to the story. I hope some of them show up in future books.

This is quite a complex story with subplots, twists and turns. I think anyone who enjoys historical romance along with societal issues of the times would enjoy this novel.
 
love is finer than any gold  Nov 10, 2013
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.

And so begins Josiah's Treasure. Sarah Whittier is on her way to secure the lease on the Sansome Street storefront for her design studio, Whittier and Company Custom Design Studio. On her third try and determined outlook, she has met the requirement of backers and receives the keys to this forefront location with perfect lighting and layout for each detailed need for her artists-to-be. Sarah rescues immigrant women from low pay, and equal respect, to enable them to learn a sought-after artistic skill to portray the sites of San Francisco and beyond.

Josiah Cady had communicated his family was no longer living ~ at least they had died to him. Finally, after much searching, his son, Daniel, locates his father's home, only to discover Josiah has died and left his inheritance to his nurse-companion, Sarah Whittier.

Sarah has other things to tend to without this unknown Daniel showing up at her doorstep. Sarah and her girls begin to clear the artist studio with gusto, especially with an Irish lass at hand.

Daniel is seeking to claim the rightful inheritance for himself and his ten-year-old sisters. In ascertaining details to determine his father's wealth, information is spread a little too thin and now has someone else on the search for hidden gold that might be waiting for the taking on the Nob Hill premises.

With all of this intrusion by Daniel, Sarah manages to resume her life as usual. Oh a free day, they all take a picnic basket on a streetcar and cable car to Golden Gate Park. And then... Cora decides to topple over into the pond and survey the bottom!

A freezing ride home, indeed!

I am about to determine Josiah's treasure is, for sure, Sarah Whittier! She is golden in her kindness and care of those around her. Will Daniel ever be on the receiving end?

Josiah  Jul 29, 2013
San Francisco in 1882 is the setting for a tale that includes mystery, action, adventure and intrigue. Sarah came to start a new life, with a different name, earning a living by taking care of an elderly gentleman named Josiah Cade. Josiah leaves all his earthly possessions to Sarah, who then begins to work at bringing her dream to life, that of opening an art studio. Since being a good student of art and tutored in painting, she begins to use these assets for her bigger dream. Her heart’s desire was to open a gallery, as well as teach art to women who possessed talent along with a willingness to learn. Sarah’s girls became more her family since others refused to bestow on her their forgiveness. Having once been a recipient of that, Sarah would take immigrant women, hone their gifts and sell their art work so they wouldn’t be out on the streets.
Daniel came to San Francisco to obtain the wealth his father never sent to his wife and children in Chicago. Since his mother’s death, he has been the sole provider for his twin sisters. Now all he has to do is prove his identity as the legal heir without hurting anyone else in the process. The residents of Nob Hill, where his father lived, all believed there was gold hidden in the home.
When I started to read the novel, I thought I knew how it was going to conclude. It seemed like a very entertaining tale, but not a book that was captivating. I was wrong. As I continued through the pages, it seemed the author hid within the midst a small seed hinting that there was more than what met the eye. Bringing in interesting characters from all walks of life with various pursuits added flavor and mystery to the story, and it appeared as each layer was drawn back that there was a deeper story waiting to be discovered.
Towards the end of the novel I couldn’t read fast enough to see how different aspects of the story were going to be brought together at the conclusion. Was Josiah a father who left a wife and children behind to search for gold? Was Sarah’s past filled murder and deceit? Does Daniel stand to inherit a bulk of money after a long journey to find his long lost father?
The author includes what I believe to be characters that reflect those who live by and with faith, as well as those who left their upbringing. Why did they leave the faith they once had? Nancy Herriman also paints with words the cry of the heart’s desire on earth, longing to be loved as well as embraced no matter what. The theme most prevalent is forgiveness and various characters’ responses to it, as well as choices made when forgiveness isn’t requested or granted from others.
 
I want more from this author!  Jul 22, 2013
A great historical fiction by Nancy Herriman. I will be looking more from this author in the future. Highly recommended.
 
A story of overcoming past mistakes and letting go of anger.  Jul 21, 2013
I really enjoyed this book. Sarah is a strong, female character who has had made some mistakes in life and has true compassion for others. She is attempting to start her own business as a way of helping other women who are in bad situations. Daniel Cady comes into the picture when he arrives in town looking for his father, who deserted his family years ago. Daniel is full of a lot of anger towards his father, who is now deceased and left his remaining estate to Sarah. The story centers on overcoming past mistakes, getting over anger and being open to God in your life. The characters all grow throughout the course of the book. I found it well written and a good story. I was provided the opportunity to read this book for free from Worthy Publishing in exchange for my honest opinion in a review.
