When her mother was killed on the American frontier, Patricia Casey's life turned upside down. Her father left for the gold fields of California. Her brother fled to Australia, also seeking gold – and now she's crossing the Pacific to search for him. Patricia accidentally injures a man in the Australian bush. She is drawn to the recovering Tim Hardy, who shares her sense of humor – and, she suspects, understands her pain as well. But their blossoming friendship is cut off when Patricia is unjustly accused of malicious injury and threatened with prison. Will Patricia ever be vindicated? Will she find the friendship and love for which she yearns? Or will riches in gold keep her from finding the true treasure God has for her?
