Sisters, Ruthie, Elizabeth, and Sally Jo were ripped from their posh San Francisco mansion and transported to wild Oregon only to be left orphaned when their parents are killed by Indians. Then, a stranger who had been mortally shot rode up to their rustic cabin and bequeathed his findings from his gold claim to them before succumbing to his injuries. The girls disposed of the body just shortly before the killers rode in. The girls told the outlaws that the man had rode through, watered his horse and left. After the men were run off, the sisters decided to high-tail it back to San Francisco with their found money, but not wanting the bad guys to get all of the gold if they were to catch up to them, the sisters split up to meet back in San Francisco.
After many months of travel and many trials and tribulations, all three sisters make it to San Francisco and attempt to begin a new life. But as fate would have it, Ruthie, the eldest sister kills a man in self-defense, but the man turns out to be the son of one of the most prominent men in California. Now she stands accused of murder and the only thing that can save her are the journals her mother kept, which implicated the father of the dead man in an insurance fraud scheme.
Love and intrigue abound when the Phillips Sisters set their sights on a target.
