New York Times bestselling author Francine Rivers returns to the California frontier in this sweeping, romantic tale of a displaced New England suffragette, a former Union soldier disinherited by his Southern family, and the town they join forces to save. 1875. When Kathryn Walsh arrives in tiny Calvada, a mining town nestled in the Sierra Nevadas, falling in love is the farthest thing from her mind. Banished from Boston by her wealthy stepfather, she has come to claim an inheritance from the uncle she never knew: a defunct newspaper office on a main street overflowing with brothels and saloons, and a seemingly worthless mine. Moved by the oppression of the local miners and their families, Kathryn decides to relaunch her uncle's newspaper--and then finds herself in the middle of a maelstrom, pitted against Calvada's most powerful men. But Kathryn intends to continue to say--and publish--whatever she pleases, especially when she knows she's right. Matthias Beck, owner of a local saloon and hotel, has a special interest in the new lady in town. He instantly recognizes C. T. Walsh's same tenacity in the beautiful and outspoken redhead--and knows all too well how dangerous that family trait can be. While Kathryn may be right about Calvada's problems, her righteousness could also get her killed. But when the handsome hotelier keeps finding himself on the same side of the issues as the opinionated Miss Walsh, Matthias's restless search for purpose becomes all about answering the call of his heart. Everyone may be looking to strike it rich in this lawless boomtown, but it's a love more precious than gold that will ultimately save them all.… (més)

This story, set in a mining town in 1875, is about Kathryn Walsh, a Christian lady from Boston, whose step-father wants her sent far away so she can’t embarrass the family with her crazy ideas about women’s suffrage. Her mother inherits a house/disused newspaper office from Kathryn’s father’s brother - Uncle City Walsh - out west. She gives it to Kathryn and sends her to the remote mining town of Calvada to claim it. There, she meets the two most powerful and wealthy men in Calvada. One is determined to marry her, and the other begrudgingly feels an obligation to protect her because of his friendship with her Uncle City. Kathryn never met City - or her father who had gone west with City and died before Kathryn’s birth. Kathryn soon learns that another newspaper serves up the news in Calvada now. Her Uncle’s house is a mess. She has inherited a worthless mine that isn’t being worked. And there are not many opportunities for women in terms of work in Calvada - unless you count the brothel. Kathryn does make a few friends, though, and when she decides to start her Uncle’s newspaper back up, she find herself in the middle of mining town politics - not a pretty place to be for a lady… ( )

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I liked the period of time it was set in and I liked the main character. I love stories based in the old West and this one met my expectations.
Kathryn arrives in a mining town having been banished there by her stepfather. She's come to claim an Inheritance from her uncle that she never knew. She decides to relaunch her uncles newspaper and starts to stir up trouble. The two most powerful men in town also vie for her attention. She's determined to live her life as she wants, by herself.
She then finds out that her uncle left her a mine and it turns out to be quite profitable. She brings new life to the dying town. Along the way she falls in love and learns that she can be a wife and be herself too.
A great read! ( )

When I was a teenager, many, many years ago, I loved reading Westerns with Louis L'Amour being my favourite author at the time. Therefore, reliving those days and reading "The Lady's Mine" was fun. I love Francine Rivers' books, she has a beautiful writing style, but I have found some of them a bit preachy but this novel was pure entertainment. It still touched on important issues such as women's rights but it had me chuckling all through it.

Kathryn was a fabulous protagonist. She was stubborn, independent and rebellious, and more than happy to buck society's view of what women could and couldn't do in the 1800s. The interactions between her and Matthias were absolutely delightful. They were supported by many loveable, quirky characters who lived in the mining town, Calvada. There was a real sense of place and the wild-west setting felt real with saloons, brothels, lawlessness and the hardships mining families faced. A great read. ( )

This was my first Francine Rivers novel – a gift from a friend and I really enjoyed it. A romance, historical fiction, some social justice issues, and an exploration of how one determined individual can impact an entire community.

Rivers says her story ideas are always inspired by questions. “Several [questions] had been on my mind that would work in an 1870s silver mining town with applications for today. Can one person impact an entire community? We’ve all met and watched people who inspire others. We all know people who follow their conscience no matter the cost. What can we do to make life better for those experiencing homelessness? Is there a better, more equitable way to spread the wealth without stealing from one group to give to another?”

These serious questions are explored with humor and grace. As this is Rivers’ pandemic book, she says “Life had become too somber to add heaviness to it. We all need to laugh, even when days are dark – maybe even more so during those times. And we all want changes for the better and a happy ending.”

This is a book I couldn’t wait to pick up and continue. It includes thoughtful discussion questions and would be great for book groups. I highly recommend it. ( )
