ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Sarah’s Search for Treasure (Searchers #3)
Author: Bertha Schwartz
Publisher: Ambassador International
Release Date: December 1, 2018
Genre: Middle Grade Historical Fiction
It’s 1849, and when Sarah’s papa and brother strike out for gold, she is stuck at home to help take care of the family and farm. This task quickly turns dangerous as the Gold Rush rises in frenzy around them. Neighbors abandon their livestock and the family must fend off half-started miners ready to steal everything they have. Sarah decides to turn her circumstances into a business—feeding the miners in exchange for gold and labor.
Sarah’s ingenuity and leadership are tested as she faces thieves, mysteries, and violent miners. Trouble closes in on all sides, and Sarah must make tough decisions on her own.
Soon Sarah learns that true treasure is not always gold, and that the greatest adventures can happen without even leaving home.

IN MY OPINION
When Gold Fever hits the residents of the area where Sarah’s family farm is, everything changes. From Sarah’s father and brother setting off to find their fortune to neighbors leaving and strangers arriving, Sarah and her remaining family must whether the changes.
Through it all, Sarah’ remains kind and compassionate. With guidance from some key wise men and her mother, Sarah and her remaining family provide for a group of men who, while at first appear to be troublemakers, have hearts of gold when it comes to protecting the feisty young lady who feeds them in exchange for work or money.
Once again, Bertha Schwartz offers middle grade readers a story of intrigue and adventure while showing that kindness, compassion, and charity are the best ways of breaking down barriers and softening hard hearts.
