As both young women follow their dreams into the mining camps and back to a rapidly growing San Francisco, they encounter ambitious settlers, sailors, miners, ranchers, and mysterious drifters, men who will offer them love or friendship or will break their hearts. Yet Kendra and Marny's lives stay centered on the Calico Palace, the little gambling operation in a tent in Shiny Gulch that becomes the most opulent gambling house in California.
Thrilling and rich in authentic historical detail, Calico Palace is first-rate historical fiction that informs and entertains.

Missing a chapter
What didn’t you like about Gabra Zackman’s performance?
I didn't not like the voices she used for any of the protagonists. Kendra sounds whiny. Marnie sounds too matronly. Pocket should have a Southern accent. And Hiram just sounded wrong. Also, the narration was too fast for my taste. I tried slowing it down to .75x, but that just made the bad voices worse.
Any additional comments?
I love this book. I've read it several times and was happy to see an audio version pop up on Audible. And so when an entire chapter was skipped (Chapter 12 of the book), it was glaringly obvious. The book has 68 chapters, not 67. Ever chapter after 12 is mis-numbered in the narration.
