The Gold Digger

By Lena Nelson Dooley


Published in connection with Hartline Literary Agency, serving the Christian book community. It's 1890, and Golden, New Mexico, is a booming mining town where men far outnumber women. So when an old wealthy miner named Philip Smith finds himself in need of a nursemaid, he places an ad for a mail-order bride--despite the protests of his friend Jeremiah. Hoping to escape a perilous situation back East, young Madeleine Mercer answers the ad and arrives in town under a cloud of suspicion. But just as she begins to win over Philip--and Jeremiah himself--the secrets she left behind threaten to follow her to Golden . . . and tarnish her character beyond redemption.

Book Takeaway:

Often forgiveness is unmerited.

Why the author wrote this book:

The story had been percolating for a long time. Then when a publisher wanted a book set in a historical town, it fit the bill.
