Heading to Silver City by Paty Jager

This weekend I'm attending Jacquie Roger's Much Ado About Silver City. Silver City, Idaho is in Owyhee county an area where Jacquie sets her western historical books. 

Tink on our road trip
It is also a gold mining ghost town that I visited several years back when Lauri Robinson and I were brainstorming a book. We had decided to have the two sisters we were writing about meet in Silver City. The town is only three hours from where I live so I and Tink, my dog, made a road trip.

I had a self tour the last time I was there. I'm looking forward to a guided tour and staying in the old hotel.  Next week will be photos from this weekend, and hopefully, I'll have more information to tell you.

Blurb for the book Lauri and I wrote together. The church is the actual church in Silver City.

For a Sister's Love

Lorelei and Maggie Holmes make a desperate vow to reunite after an Indian raid on their wagon train leaves them orphans. Eight-year-old Lorelei is taken in by an impoverished family headed to a Colorado mining town and ten-year-old Maggie finds herself on the way to Portland, Oregon to live with a woman widowed during the Indian attack.

Ten years later, Lorelei’s adoptive father gambles away her birth mother’s locket and her only connection to her lost sister. Believing she needs the locket and to find Maggie, she sets out after the gambler and ends up in the company of a citified lawyer searching for the same man.

While cleaning a hotel room, Maggie discovers her mother’s locket in the possession of a gambler. Fear for her sister increases Maggie's determination. Never one to give up, she dogs the gambler until he agrees to help her find her sister.

Two sisters, two adventures, will they find one another or will the men helping them be their destinies?
