Golden Gate Gazette

Golden Gate Gazette
By: Carol Cox, DiAnn Mills, Darlene Mindrup, and Kathleen Y'Barbo

I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I found myself wishing that the authors had all gotten together and wrote complete novels, instead of just novellas. I could not put the book down! It was so easy to get into the minds of the characters and I really wanted to know more every step of the way.

Due to the men on strike, Amy was given a position at the Golden Gate Gazette. While covering a local fire on her first assignment as a reporter, instead of her typical society column, she meets Jennie, Helen, Penny and Penny's brother. Amy gets the girls jobs at the paper and a place to live and they quickly become good friends. Join them for their interesting journeys as young women of the newspaper in a time when women don't typically work for a living.

Back of the Book:
In 1860 San Francisco, when the newspaper workers strike, four women take on the task of reporting the news in a man's world while skirting danger and romance. Who can they trust?

Amy Lattimer's allegiance to the paper is questioned when arson fires seem linked to her family. Can she prove her innocence to a handsome policeman?

Jennie Montgomery's curiosity gets her into the middle of a murder investigation. Has she gotten in too deep and compromised another reporter's work?

Helen Morgan makes a printing error that has criminals hunting an innocent man. Can she fix the mistake and save a new friendship?

Penny Brice's attempts to prove her value as a writer could cost her her life. Will she impress her boss or only draw him into a dangerous web?

When the newspaper stories hit the stands, will these four women's faith - and lives - endure to grasp the hand of love?
