After a harrowing journey across the country, Leah Westfall and her friends have finally arrived in California and are ready to make their fortunes in the Gold Rush. Lee has a special advantage over the other new arrivals in California—she has the ability to sense gold, a secret known only by her handsome best friend Jefferson and her murdering uncle Hiram.
Lee and her friends have the chance to be the most prosperous settlers in California, but Hiram hasn’t given up trying to control Lee and her power. Sabotage and kidnapping are the least of what he’ll do to make sure Lee is his own. His mine is the deepest and darkest in the territory, and there Lee learns the full extent of her magical gift, the worst of her uncle, and the true strength of her friendships. To save everyone, she vows to destroy her uncle and the empire he is building—even at the cost of her own freedom.
The second epic historical fantasy in the Gold Seer trilogy by Rae Carson, the acclaimed author of The Girl of Fire and Thorns.

Like a River Glorious by Rae Carson is so incredibly good. I can’t believe it took me so long to dive into this amazing sequel. Carson brings back her amazing characters and story line. I am a huge fan of Walk on Earth a Stranger and Like a River Glorious is just as good.

I love Leah. She is such a great character and she has grown so much. Now in California, Leah is trying not to get caught. she knows that her uncle will eventually find her and she wants to be ready for when he does. I really enjoyed the continuation of Leah’s story. Carson did an amazing job with Leah’s character.

If you haven’t read these books than you are truly missing out. Carson is a fantastic writer. This story is so good. I know I keep saying that but it is so true. Carson’s words flow so beautifully across the page. Definitely check this series out because I am extremely excited for book three.
