It is 1849 and Susanna Fairchild is on board the California, a ship sailing from New York to California. She and her family are bound for Oregon City where they are to join old friends and start a new life. Only tragedy strikes while on board and Susanna's mother is lost to the ocean. Things change rapidly then. They learn that there is a gold rush on in California, and when their nearly-empty boat docks in Panama, hoards of Americans board the ship for passage to the California territory. Struck by "gold fever" himself, Susanna's physician father decides to forego their trip to Oregon and become a gold miner instead.

A busy historical story

Travelling by ship to Oregon, Susanna's mother is thrown overboard in a storm. In his grief, their father concocts another plan: he has heard about the gold rush and decides to take his daughters to California instead. They are surrounded by a lust for gold, but in her journal, Susanna writes how hopes her family do not lose sight of the most important of riches: their love for one another. I thought this book was a historical gem and that Gregory conjured the close relationhip of her family, and the mood of the goldrush. The way it is written as a journal makes it easy to read in installments, with individual events that give information or pause for thought. I like this series of novels as they provide entertaining stories, rooted in historucal fact so that you also learn along the way.
