Summary, etc.:
Inspired by female architect Julia Morgan, this is the riveting tale of a race against time to rebuild two luxury hotels after the 1906 San Francisco earthquake destroyed 400 city blocks and left 250,000 homeless. Morgan's fictional protegee Amelia Bradshaw and client J.D. Thayer will sacrifice anything to see the city they love rise from the ashes; in the process, they can't help but lose their hearts. Praise for Ciji Ware:. "Ciji Ware is a master storyteller.". --Libby's Library News. "A great historical fiction author ... Ciji Ware certainly knows how to touch hearts.". --Reading Extravaganza.
