"With Norwich Gold, you've achieved a well-written and carefully researched story that was a pleasure to read." - Wally Lamb, Two-time #1 New York Times bestselling author

Everyone knows of California's great American gold rush. But, did you know that a gold mining company operated in Norwich, Connecticut during the mid-1850s? This coming of age historical fiction novel tells the story of Travis Mathews, a young Native American who discovers gold in the outskirts of Victorian-era Norwich.

His discovery, which coincides with the magnificent celebration of the town's 200th anniversary of its founding, reignites a sense of opportunity and optimism among locals.

When Travis and his friend, Lydia Stedman, search for more gold, they find several of his tribe's relics. However, they also uncover suspicious practices of the gold mining company's owner, who is also the leader of another local, rival Native American tribe.

Travis and Lydia learn of love, their heritage, and of the charm of mid-nineteenth century Norwich in this historical fiction novel.

This historical fiction novel has it all - the allure of gold fever on Victorian-era Norwich locals, two local Native American tribes at odds, romance, a mystery to be solved, and other secrets. You'll have to read to find out.
