Overview

When life falls apart, love can make you whole again.

The Malloy Family, Book 11

As the “beautiful” sister, Isabelle Chastain always struggled to be taken seriously. But as her family immigrates to Oregon Territory, she loses her sister Francesca to marriage, and her parents to dysentery. It’s time to take control.

With an empty wagon and a broken heart, she and her younger sister Charlotte turn for home to search for another sister, Josephine, left behind to recover from typhoid. The last thing Isabelle needs in her path is a naked, bleeding man left to die in the dirt.

Dazzled by a friend’s stories of California gold, college professor Mason Bennett left North Carolina to get his share. All his dreams of adventure and riches got him, however, was robbed, beaten, and left for dead.

As Isabelle stitches him up, he discovers her wit is as sharp as her needle. But when vagabonds seize their wagon, they must band together to save themselves—or any hope for a happy future could disappear.

Warning: Saddle up for an Old West yarn, complete with a beautiful woman with more strength than ten men, a professor turned cowboy, a love that defies the odds, and adventure that will leave you gasping for more.

    This was my first read of Beth Williamson, and it certainly will

    This was my first read of Beth Williamson, and it certainly will not be the last. I was captivated from page one with The Jewel, and I think that Williamson is a very talented writer. I felt like I was taken back to the past with the focus on the details and historical facts that Williamson was able to creatively weave into a romantic story full of hardship and determination. The story is led with a great cast of characters with Isabelle, Charlie, and Mason. I actually read this in one sitting, because I just couldn’t put it down. This is the type of romance that I just love to read!

    The story opens with Isabelle and Charlotte Chastain dealing with the loss of their parents along the Oregon Trail. When they decide to turn back and seek out the sisters that they have parted ways with along the way, they come across a battered man and save his life. Mason, having been left for dead, is grateful for the Chastain sister’s generosity in saving him, but he also develops intense feelings for the ever stoic Isabelle. Together these two fight the immense odds that are set against them in their journey to reunite her with her other sisters.

    As I said before, this is the best type of romance to read. It was full of suspense, mystery, and above all...sweet romance. I admired Isabelle so much for her strength, Charlie for her foul mouth, and Mason because he was discovering a side of himself that he never knew existed. They each were wonderful and strong characters that I could read about over and over again. I’m eager to read more from Williamson, so I will definitely be going back to the previous books in this series. I will say that I wasn’t really lost with this being number eleven in the series despite my having not read any of them previously. It definitely stood on its own, but I want to know about the other sisters now too. So overall, this was a delightful read and I definitely suggest it.

    I am a big fan of Beth Williamson's books and The Malloy Family

    I am a big fan of Beth Williamson's books and The Malloy Family series!!   I loved this book as much as the others!!!

    In the Jewel we meet Isabelle and Charlie (Charlotte), two of the Chastain sisters on a trip to reunite with their other sisters.
    They have many hardships along the way, starting with the loss of their parents.During the trip they find Mason Bennett. Mason is a
    professor who is on his own trip to California because he has heard about the gold rush. When Isabelle and Charlie find him he
    has been beaten, shot and left for dead.Having been taught medicine by her mother, Isabelle takes care of Mason and he travels
    with them while he is healing. During the trip a romance begins between Isabelle and Mason. They also have to deal with horrible
    weather conditions as well as undesirable criminals.

    I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series about Charlie's story!!

    I would recommend this book very much!! If you haven't read the other books in the series, you would love them also!!
