Overview

Desperate to save her siblings from poverty, a young woman discovers magic fueled by gold . . . and a love for the man who wields it.

Abandoned by their father for the gold rush, Gentry and her siblings labor to survive alone in the inhospitable west. When bizarre natural disasters begin wreaking havoc on the land, Gentry discovers a world of magic. Desperate for help, she accepts aid from a mysterious stranger.

Winn not only sees the magic, but controls its hunger by feeding it gold—the very thing Gentry's father left to acquire. But the earth's unrest only grows worse, and Gentry's fear leads her to a terrible choice: marry a wealthy man she does not love, or trust in Winn's unpredictable power to save her family.

Holmberg (The Paper Magician) reimagines the California Gold Rush as the end of an enchanted world in this mostly charming historical fantasy romance. Gentry Abrams steps in as head of her household after her widower father’s very sudden departure to seek gold in San Francisco. As she struggles to control her emotions and provide for her younger siblings, alarming natural disasters threaten her small Utah community of Dry Creek. She meets the heroic, mysteriously golden Winn Maheux when he quiets an earthquake. He explains the disasters are caused by rampant mining that’s disturbing the gold that feeds magic. Gentry quickly develops romantic feelings for the unusual outsider, who uses his troupe of obedient seagulls to rescue her multiple times. But everyday pressures, Winn’s irregular appearances, and her father’s silence conspire to push Gentry toward accepting the proposal of much older farmer Hoss Howland, who promises her a stable, secure life. Utah’s history, Mormon polygamy included, provides a rich setting for the mythology that blooms, a bit questionably, to include the fictional Native American tribe who taught Winn to control magic. This clever ecological tale, which dips a tad into the melodramatic, will please readers looking for regionally and historically grounded fantasy. Agent: Marlene Stringer, Stringer Literary. (July)
