THE DUCHESS OF OPHIR CREEK
This third book in Ms. Glad's "Behind
the Ranges" series is filled with colorful characters. It is an exciting book, rich in history and detail. It is always a pleasure to watch a writer grow, and Ms. Glad just keeps getting better.
Gold Fever has struck the Idaho Basin since Silas Dewitt hid his cache of gold. Finding it is going to be both difficult and dangerous.
He hires two young Chinese boys to help watch his back while he searches for the hidden cave. Only the older of the two boys, Soomey, is more than appearances seem.
