Golden, New Mexico is a real town that prospered during the gold rush . LFY in Golden, New Mexico is my first novel from author Lena Nelson Dooley and excitedly not my last. The romance just melts off of the pages.

Golden, New Mexico is a real town that prospered during the gold rush days, but nowadays there is little more than a church there. It was interesting to read about this town and the people that might have inhabited it. The characters are very realistically developed and the story line compelling. I really felt like I was there in New Mexico! I recommend this book if you love a good historical romance.

All that glitters is not gold. It’s 1890, and Golden, New Mexico, is a booming mining town where men far outnumber women. So when an old wealthy miner named Philip Smith finds himself in need of a nursemaid, he places an ad for a mail-order bride—despite the protests of his friend Jeremiah. Hoping to escape a perilous situation back East, young Madeleine Mercer answers the ad and arrives in town under a cloud of suspicion. But just as she begins to win over Philip—and Jeremiah himself—the secrets she left behind threaten to follow her to Golden...and tarnish her character beyond redemption.

A unique mail order bride story from 1890's, with little blips and facts scattered throughout, I mostly enjoyed this light story.
The author did some research on artificial feeding of infants in that time period, which I found good, but also did not mention that a woman of no means would have likely not sought out the expensive and often unattainable formula powder and bottles, but would have instead gone the cheaper route of finding a nurse for the baby, something that was easier available to even the poor.

While this might seen to be small, it did cause a bit of frustration to me throughout the story. However, it was not the point of the book, but just a reminder that sometimes it does help to research not only what was available, but what circumstances would have forced a woman used to living with means into.

The Gold Digger by Lena Nelson Dooley

1890...Golden, New Mexico, a booming mining town with a shortage of marriageable women. I am sure it was a bit surprising to the townsfolk of Golden when the old wealthy miner, Philip Smith, sent for a mail-order bride. His good friend Jeremiah Dennison certainly was and even more surprised when a young woman from Boston, Madeleine Mercer, agrees to be his bride. Philip has a unique method of choosing his bride (I won’t share so as not to spoil it) which I found very interesting and thoroughly enjoyed. Philip has his reasons and will share them at the appropriate time...God’s time. Many of the characters became favorites, Philip of course, Jeremiah, Madeleine and baby Pearl and some of the secondary characters. Woven within the story-line, among the suspense and romance, is a spiritual thread of faith and hope, forgiveness and compassion, what true-love is and how to live it out each day. A sweet, heartwarming story.

(~I also received a paperback copy of this book from the author (no monetary gain were exchanged), this is my honest review~)

I I like Christian romance novels, but this one has too much preaching in it for my taste. The story started out interesting enough, with an intriguing premise, but I found myself skimming as I got closer to the end. Predictable, as expected (h&h marry and live happily ever after), but somehow it lacks some of the magic that makes this genre of novel enjoyable.

In Love Finds You in Golden, New Mexico, Lena takes us off on a romantic, historic, and spiritual journey between several people. It is the 1890s, and Philip Smith, an elderly, sick, quite well-to-do miner instructs his young friend, Jeremiah Dennison, to put an ad in the newspaper for a bride. Philip has loved Jeremiah like his own son, and so he feels obligated to fulfill the old man's wishes, much to his dismay. Why does Philip need a young gold-digging wife to take care of him, when Jeremiah can meet all of his needs?

Madeline Mercer, of Boston, a fine, young Christian woman, finds herself in a terrible dilemma when a business partner of her recently deceased father, announces that she is penniless and must marry him. Also a friend of Maddy's dies in childbirth and insists Maddy take care of her baby, Pearl, before she passes away. Desperate to escape the horrible Horace, and have a means to support Pearl, Madeline answers Philip's ad and flees to New Mexico. Upon meeting him, she is shocked to see that he is so old, but soon grows fond of this kind, Godly man, who has offered to take care of her and the babe.

Jeremiah, is very suspicious of the lovely Madeline, but finds himself irresistably drawn to her as a moth to a flame; his best friends intended. Jeremiah also believes that even though he is not a Christian, he is a good man, and doesn't need God. Soon Maddy's past and Horace's lies and accusations catch up with her. Will she be able to stay in Golden, where her precious baby and Philip have grown to love one another so? And what exactly are the old miner's plans for her and Pearl? Does Jeremiah give in and let God take control of his life? And what horrible things does Horace do, all for the love of money? Has he gone too far for God's mercy and redemption?

This was a beautiful story of forgiveness, love, and redemption, as only Lena Nelson Dooley can tell it! I found myself, more than once, with a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes...what a wonderful read with a surprise twist near the end!

This really is an unusual twist of the usual mail order bride story. The unusual twist keeps happening until the end of this wonderful book. A very good Christian novel. I like to add to my collection of books I would read again and still enjoy the wording and the development of the plot and story. Lena Nielson Dooley keep on writing such uplifting stories. Thanks again for such a good book.
