Beset with grief and guilt, she is scraping out a shadowy existence as a New York shoeshine boy when word spreads like wildfire: gold nuggets line the riverbeds of California.
Eager to stake a claim, Frances boldly sets out on the overland trek to California s gold fields, praying that her journey will lead her to richesand a place a woman like her can call her own.
Rich with historic detail and steeped in the secret passion of women-loving-women, Hilary McCollum s debut novel is an epic story of love lost and found in a daring life."
