A Claim of Her Own

Product Description (from ChristianBook.com)

It's 1876, and 20-year-old Mattie Flynn is determined to make a fresh start after fleeing from her sinister boss in the gambling house where she was employed as a singer. Mattie travels to Deadwood, South Dakota, in search of her younger brother, who went ahead of her in hopes of making a fortune in the gold mines.

All Mattie wants is a safe and respectable life for the two of them, but that doesn't seem to be her destiny as she faces more heartache and trials. Will the suspicious bottles of gold dust from her brother's claim be the key to her future...or does the handsome street preacher, who is always turning the other cheek, truly hold the answers to her deepest longings?

Author Stephanie Grace Whitson's website is HERE.


A Claim of Her Own is a lovely story. I found Whitson's characters intriguing and I enjoyed "getting to know" them. I really appreciated the fact that I could not predict the entire ending of the book right from chapter one :) Whitson did an excellent job of drawing me in to the story with her descriptive writing. If you are a fan of historical fiction with a touch of romance than this is an excellent choice for you!
