Suzanne Lilly: Gold Rush Deluge

It’s a good time to take a break from talking about myself. Today I want to tell you about my colleague, author Suzanne Lilly.


Suzanne’s books are about a gold rush too, but a different one: California. Her new book is the second one in her California Argonauts series, Gold Rush Deluge:


Sacramento is underwater. A deluge of epic proportions has engulfed the town, leaving Lucinda Martin York and George Arnold stranded. Lucinda uses her medical skills to help save the citizens of Sacramento, working as a physician’s assistant to Dr. Mitchell Kersey. When she uncovers lies and treachery in the doctor’s past, she becomes enmeshed in dangers even more deadly than the flood. Lucinda must fight to save her life, her dreams, and her future with George.

Based on historical events of 1850 Sacramento, Gold Rush Deluge is riveting and romantic.

I love to share my passion for Alaska and its history in my writing for young adults and their grown ups.

    I spent some younger years in California and always found the Gold Rush a fascinating time. Nice to know women’s roles are being spotlighted because they contributed so much.

    Hi Bonnie! Thank you for stopping by. I was inspired to write about the women when I was teaching California history and found so few records of women’s accomplishments. Most of the accounts I’ve found are from women’s diaries. I love the research and I love the time period!
