But she also has a dream to become one of the first women doctors in the United States.Lucinda’s personal journey involves making a living as a gold miner, saving up money to get to medical college, and winning over the sourdough miners of the time. And of course there’s a romance. The sweet romance builds gradually and logically to a sat [...]


    • Around this time of year I am always in the mood for stories about the pioneering adventures of the settlers in 19th century America and this story was just perfect to gratify that craving. It was light, with a bit of romance and adventure.I kept changing the rating of this story from three to four stars and then back again to three stars until I was finally able to settle on four stars. The reason for my indecisiveness were some of the annoying personality traits of the protagonist. At times sh [...]


    • I'm a huge fan of Suzanne Lilly's books, and this is my favorite one yet! Gold Rush Girl was excellent. I started reading it and couldn't put it down. I ended up staying up until past 4 a.m. to finish! I loved Lucinda's spunk and work ethic, and George*swoon* he was great! I love books that cover the gold rush era of American history, and this one was fantastic. History brought alive! I learned things while reading--like different items/terms and societal/gender rolls during the period--but it d [...]


    • Love It! The California Gold Rush with a Spunky HeroineI wish this book was recommended reading for students learning about the Gold Rush! Suzanne Pitner's first California Argonauts novel introduces a spunky heroine working side by side with the miners of the famous California Gold Rush. The story richly incorporates the perfect amount of historical detail, making the period come to life while keeping the story flowing. I love the main character, Lucinda, with her spunky spirit, good heart, and [...]


    • I want to Thank Suzanne Lilly for giving me this book, the pioneering spirit of people in the mid 1800's and their hardships always amazed me, I especially enjoyed this book because it is a story of a young woman on her own in the west determined make her own way in what was a wild country during that time and to achieve her dreams when women where expected to stay at home. I am looking forward to reading book 2.

    • There are quite a few treasures to find in Suzanne Lilly's GOLD RUSH GIRL! I've always had a soft spot for the Old West, and I love a good read that's littered with historical nuggets, so this light-hearted novel really sparkled.As the heroine, Lucinda York, faces a tough and uncertain future, we join her in her struggle to survive, along with George Arnold, who, like Lucinda, is trying to make a life in the gold-mining town of Diggers Flat. The cast of characters, the miner's lot, the hopes and [...]

    • I am a fan of the Old West and the Gold Rush so I decided to read this book. It took me a while to finish because it never really captured my interest. I would stop reading and then go back to it. The author did her research and I did like all the characters especially Lucinda and George, but I never felt emotionally connected to them. This book is written more for a YA audience and there is a bit of romance. What it really needs is another round of content editing.
