About the book
Wilhelmina Sukovich is curious and determined to have her own By Line in the Sacramento Bee. Aged out at the Children’s Home Society orphanage, she attends night school and works herself up in the newspaper hierarchy. Her first big break comes as an assignment takes her to the small mountain town of San Andreas in the Gold Country of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. She searches out her father’s gravesite only to mysteriously be drawn to the artistry of an ancient tombstone nearby, Eliza Osbourne, 1868. Formidable ranchers and a widow befriend her in her quest to fulfill her assignment for school children and search for Eliza’s roots. World War II veteran, Charles, rescues Will from her misadventures. Who is he and why is he such a recluse? Why has he taken it upon himself to see she is safe?

Wilhelmina who was called Will throughout the book is working on a newspaper article. She finds out a lot more than she ever thought she would. She was staying at an motel but then got invited to rent an room from Mabel. She has two young boys. Will has a little dog named Buttons. She takes her dog about everywhere and they have quite an adventure.
Will does a lot of exploring around cemeteries, caves and woods. She takes the boys with her at one time. She wanted to find more than she was told to find by the newspaper. You just never knew what was going to happen next in the story. I found the book very exciting.
I received an complementary copy of the book from Celebrate Lit. I was not required to write an positive review.
