In 1858, Reilly Ship Works is threatened with financial ruin so the youngest brother, Devin Reilly sets out for the California gold fields to seek his fortune. As soon as Devin sets foot on American soil, however, his fortunes take a fortuitous, though alarming, turn. When a scuffle frightens the horses drawing a carriage, Devin leaps to the rescue, only to find his Blessing. Devin doesn't think he has the time for a "life altering event" now, but destiny takes a hand, proving that the unexpected may just be what Devin needs. A scandalous kiss alters his course as the woman's eyes reveal both laughter and promises, bringing him a feeling of having come home. So despite his obligations, Devin finds himself accompanying her home.
Margaret Sylvia Worth Brownley only knew that Devin could "stop a speeding carriage and start the wild racing of her heart." While most men find the idea of a woman running a business completely scandalous, Devin finds Maggie's dreams for her future remarkable. Maggie's grandmother has run her lumber business for thirty years, and one day plans to hand the business into the safekeeping of her granddaughter. So when a letter comes informing Maggie of her grandmother's ill health, it's up to Devin to accompany her to Maine. Besides, Maggie's father has arranged an ill-fated marriage for his daughter, and nothing will dissuade him from his plans. The trip, however, allows both Devin and Maggie the opportunity to learn that love is more precious than gold.
REILLY'S GOLD continues this fascinating series about love and an ancient gift. For a family of shipbuilders, it is quite amusing that Devin lacks sea legs. Additionally, the mentioning of the much beloved grandmother, both in the telling of the blessing and in the making of tea for the seasick, brings this unseen character to life preparing for her continued influence in the third novel. Furhter, this memorable cast of characters brings the Bostonian stuffiness and prejudice against the Irish vividly alive. With Elizabeth Key's talented pen, this novel is pure gold, coming very highly recommended.
