GENRE: Historical Fiction
ANGEL OF THE GOLD RUSH
Angel Trilogy - Book 1
by B J Scott
Widowed on the Oregon Trail en route to the gold fields of California, Irish immigrant Kathleen Connelly and her daughter Megan survive a brutal passage through the snow-bound Sierra Nevada Mountains to stagger into California Territory alone and destitute. There begins the remarkable transformation of a poor immigrant into a force to be reckoned with in the soon-to-be new state—a woman who becomes a legend whom the California Indians say couldn’t be killed, and the founder of a great empire.
Journey along the Oregon Trail and plunge into the world of the Forty-Niners, a passage fraught with tragedy, poverty, hardship, failure, and ultimately, triumph in the wake of a fiercely determined woman who would not be denied.
