Isabelle Labrie keeps her past concealed, like the treasure hidden under the Golden Hotel. It is 1853 during the California Gold Rush and Isabelle is full of hope staking her claim on the future. When unexpected guests (fugitive slaves seeking safety) arrive at her hotel, she must confront her past and reconsider the path for her future. While California is considered a free state slaves are still hiding and on the run. Good historical mystery that combines slavery and the Gold Rush into one story.
