Summary
Thurston House is the most lavish mansion that the richest man in California could build in the 1880s ... the largest house that San Francisco's exclusive Nob Hill has ever seen ... and a living palace of love built for one woman: Camille. Enchanting, raven-haired and fiery, she is the all-consuming passion that Jeremiah Thurston has found in the autumn of his life. When she leaves him, bored by his love for his mines, by his endless hours of hard work, Thurston House becomes an empty monument to lost hopes and vanished dreams-lifeless but for one small person. Sabrina, child of that love, grows up believing her mother is dead. Her only legacy from Camille is the legendary beauty; in all other ways, Sabrina is her father's image: willful, headstrong and loyal to his passion for the land and his work. Suddenly, at 18, her life changed with his death, she makes the fateful decision to rule Thurston Mines. Against her, waiting for any sign of weakness, is a powerful enemy: John Harte, the man who hoped to take her father's place, a man who will profit if she fails. Armed only with her sharp wit and sheer courage, Sabrina is determined to succeed. Then, one day, she and John find they can no longer compete, for she has seen the warm heart beneath his fierce independence, and he has fallen in love with the woman emerging from the indomitable little girl. Yet their love and marriage-like her father's before her-will not stand untested. In a sweeping narrative that moves from the epic earthquake of 1906 to the harsh Depression years, from the glitter of society to the danger of the mine shafts, Sabrina must face the cycles of birth and death, hardship and triumph. Even when her past threatens to destroy her future, she will persevere. Because, above all, Sabrina will not rest until Thurston House is the home it was meant to be, a home filled with love and laughter.--Page 2 and 3 of cover
