Item Description...
Rachel van Buren arrives in Gold Rush San Francisco with two wishes: to protect her younger siblings and to return east as soon as possible. Both goals prove more difficult than she could imagine as her brother and sister are lured by the city's dangerous freedom and a missionary-turned-gambler stakes a claim on her heart. Rachel won't give up without a fight though, and soon all will learn an eloquent but humorous lesson about what truly makes a lady. Speak Politely. Even when you're the only respectable woman around, protesting the decadence of a city lost to gold fever. Dress Modestly. Wear your sunbonnet at all times. Ensure nobody sees your work boots muddied by the San Francisco streets. Remain Devoted to Family. Protect your siblings from the lures of the city, even against their wishes. Stand Above Reproach. Most difficult when a wonderful man turns out to be a saloon owner. Rise Above Temptation. No, not even just a little kiss.... When these rules become increasingly difficult to uphold, can Rachel Van Buren remain a beacon of virtue in a city of vice?

Great Story  Jun 11, 2008
This is a great story set in the 1849 California gold rush. The characters are fun and yet they have their human flaws. Good lesson about judging others and forgiveness.
Are we supposed to like any of the characters?  May 29, 2008
This is a great book. I definitely enjoyed reading it, the plot not only makes sense but delivers a powerful "Thou Shalt Not Judge" message. I was just left to wonder if we were supposed to like any of the characters? The younger brother is a menace to society (an inconsistent), the younger sister is a prideful lady of easy virtue, the older sister is such a stoic prude I couldn't begin to relate to her. This book is an exercise in frustration. However, while I understood the author's point, I would hesitate to recommend this book to anyone I knew.
An incredible romantic adventure  Jan 10, 2008
DeeAnn Gist's "The Measure of a Lady" took my breath away. It has short, digestible chapters with several stopping points in each so that you can put the book down if you must. But you won't want to put the book down. This novel's fascinating storyline of three teenagers who traveled with their father from New Jersey to San Francisco during the California gold rush brought many things to my mind that I'd never thought of before. What would happen to children who lost their parent during the treacherous voyage? How would they survive? Why did women in the Wild West become prostitutes? This novel answers those questions and more. The female lead, Rachel, is a character study in the behavior of a "prim and proper" Christian lady. Her legalistic thinking is challenged in her new home. Johnnie, her male counterpart, is incredible. He is strong, thoughtful, intelligent, rugged, and oh-so romantic. I am so glad to have this title in my personal library. I will read this book over and over again.
Entertaining  Dec 30, 2007
This was an entertaining story with many parallels to the Babylonian society we live in today.
Loved the book  Dec 28, 2007
From my mom of 72 to me of 46 and my daughter of 14 we all loved it!!
