When Amelia Wagner takes over her father's newspaper in 1893 Granite Springs, Arizona, she vows to carry on the paper's commitment to reporting only the truth. But Amelia soon learns that even the truth can have serious consequences. Her father's revealing articles about the Great Western Investment Company have caught the attention of the wrong people, and pressure mounts for Amelia to retract her father's statements.
Determined to find out the real story, Amelia begins her own investigation. She's joined by Benjamin Stone, a Great Western employee who's been assigned to keep tabs on her for the good of the company, a man Amelia finds both perplexing and intriguing.
What they uncover stuns them both--and has far-reaching implications for not only Ben and Amelia but all of Granite Springs. Can they reveal the truth before the enemy finds a way to silence them for good?
This book is a light hearted read that doesn't take much out of you. Amelia is a go getter and not your usual demure woman of the late 1800's. Ben is a match for her and between them they make a perfect pair. There is a little mystery involved in this book, but it's pretty straight forward working out who is who, and what is what.
Will I remember this book in a month or two; probably not, but it was an enjoyable book to read. It was one of my books I can read and carry on thinking about other things, type of books!
Stars out of 5 : 4 A good book to while away a few hours and you get to learn a little something about early newspaper publishing.
