Item Description...
Bestselling author Deeanne Gist offers a clever, engaging historical romance of a virtuous young woman maintaining her honor amid decadent Gold Rush San Francisco. Christy Award Winner 2007 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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Wonderful book with a great lesson for our role in society today  Oct 6, 2008
I loved this book, I read it in a day! Yes it is a romance. For those who are offended because it is a Christian book, read Song of Solomon! Also keep in mind - the show of affection was between Rachel and Johnnie only, not between the other "tainted" women from the town. It portrayed temptation and it showed that there is always a way out of that temptation through prayer. God always gives a lifeline when we listen and obey. I think that message above all is excellent for our teenage sons and daughters today. I loved the love story throughout and how Johnnie wrestled with the Lord and came back to the faith. Above all I think the idea that we need to be the salt of the earth for the unbelievers is a vital message for today. We need to stop condemning and begin forgiving and building up people for a better life. Yes there are hypocrites, but that's why we have the Bible as our standard. I John tells how to recognize a true Christian.
Waste of hours of my life  Oct 4, 2008
Rachel is a high and mighty, incredibly annoying, bossy, holier than thou, brat. When she FINALLY learns not to be such a twit, the end of the book is near. I felt for her siblings - I would have probably pulled all my hair out if I was them. That a man in the world would put up with her crap is beyond me.
Christian fiction with an edge!  Aug 2, 2008
While "Bride..." was my favorite by this author, I enjoyed Measure of A Lady as well. Rachel is a young woman trying to raise Christian siblings in a non-Christian town. Many are giving her a hard time but cut her some slack, she just wants what is best for them. What Lissa and Michael do is exactly what she was trying to keep them from doing. Remember that she did not have a mother to guide her and so her misunderstandings about sex and other issues are not all her fault. I think she and Johnnie came out very well in the end...what if she had compromised herself b-4 Johnnie came to Christ again? I think it is a heart-warming tale with some sexual tension and maybe should be avoided by young teenagers...but overall a 'can't put it down' read!
Such an Incredible Story!!  Jul 1, 2008
Absolutely could not put this book down. Found myself reading until 3:00 and 4:00 a.m., and then had to drag myself into work, but it was so worth it. It's a definite page turner. I can't recommend this one strongly enough. Five stars just isn't enough. Can't wait to see what Deanne Gist publishes next. She's definitely one to watch. ~Deb.
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.
