This engaging trilogy ender (Walk on Earth a Stranger, rev. 9/15; Like a River Glorious, rev. 1/17) finds Leah and friends happily prospecting their nearly incorporated gold-rush town of Glory, California. With wicked Uncle Hiram out of the picture, Leah can breathe easier, but her magical ability to sense gold continues to be both a blessing and curse. A stay in San Francisco (with now-fiancé Jefferson; friend and tavern owner Becky Joyner; and the Illinois college men) brings unwanted attention from unscrupulous businessman James Hardwick and his "associate," Miss Helena Russell, who may have more in common with Leah than she realizes. Characters from previous books, both welcome (the formerly enslaved Jim Boisclair, who per the author's note was a real person) and decidedly not (the nasty Frank Dilley), also reappear. An Oceans 11–esque climax that rids the city of Hardwick, cements Glory's incorporation, and sees romantic satisfaction for many of the trilogy's long-suffering characters (including two of the college men) leads to a well-earned, if rosy-hued, conclusion. elissa gershowitz Copyright 2018 Horn Book Magazine Reviews.
