It's 1876 and twenty-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 had hoped to make his fortune in the gold mines.
All Mattie wants is a safe and respectable life for herself and her brother, but all she seems to find is trouble. Is it possible that the bottles of gold dust from her brother's claim could be the key to their future -- or does the handsome street preacher hold the answers to some of her deepest longings?

Stephanie Grace Whitson, bestselling author and two time Christy Award finalist, pursues a full-time writing and speaking career from her home studio in Lincoln, Nebraska. Her husband and blended family, her chuch, quilting, and Kitty--her motorcycle--all rank high on her list of "favorite things".Review:
"Mattie's transformation from a woman fleeing her past to one embracing her future is deftly handled, and the changes in the lives of the minor characters add considerable texture. What is more, Whitson's decision to set this novel in 1876 allowed her to weave some fascinating history of the Black Hills into an already rich story. This book is a keeper for anyone who enjoys inspirational romance." --Historical Novels Review
