Gold Rush Dream is the story of a young girl coming of age and overcoming personal tragedy as she makes a long, turbulent journey across the American territories. East Texas in 1849 is no place for the weak, as Rose finds out when marauding Indians destroy her family's homestead. Rescued by Travis, a man who makes his living by trapping in the wild, together they will set out to find her only remaining family in California. As their travels turn into a quest to find not only family, but the wealth available to a few lucky souls during the Gold Rush, Rose and Travis will find that it takes all of their endurance and obsession to achieve their dreams. Ultimately, they will find that it is the love that grows between two people whose shared values of freedom, independence and honor are worth more than any nuggets of gold they might find when faced with the difficulties and dangers of life in the American West. About the Author Billie Sue Mosiman is the author of several award-nominated suspense novels. This is her first Western, which came about through her abiding interest in the California Gold Rush period of American history. The author lives in Texas near Old San Antonio Road, an historic road once used by Native Americans, that crosses Texas from east to west.

Finished this in about two and a half hours. I thought it could have used a little more plot development - many things felt a bit rushed/glossed over. I also never really connected with the character ... Read full review

About the author (2012)

I am a thriller, suspense, and horror novelist. My books were first published in 1984 and two of them received an Edgar Award Nomination for best novel and a Bram Stoker Award Nomination for most superior novel. I was born in Alabama and live now in Texas on a small ranch. My work has been predominately suspense thrillers, but I also wrote a western, three vampire novels, a travel memoir, and many short stories. Most of my work has been made available at for the e-book reader. I love to read (especially on my Kindle), paint, make quilts, take photographs, and travel. I have two daughters and eight grandchildren. I had two inspiring persons in my life. One was my grandmother, Naomi. And, every day and forever, my husband, who has lived this adventure with me.
