Narrator Erin Mallon doesn't waste any time revealing the peculiar blend of vulnerability and daring that make Lee Westfall, the narrator of this historical novel, so unique. Her voice cracks with fear but is grounded in strength as, following tragic events, she begins a difficult journey to California to mine for gold. For her own safety, she disguises herself as a boy, but this isn't the only secret she's keeping. She possesses an uncanny ability to sense whenever gold is near. With the exception of Lee's subtle Southern drawl, Mallon deftly distinguishes between Lee's diverse group of traveling companions with pitch and pacing rather than dialect, moving the dialogue along smoothly.
