    Inhaltsangabe

    Kate Winthrop, the only child of a wealthy shipping magnate, has the course of her life charted for her by her parents. She's expected to marry well and produce a successor to the Winthrop empire. But Kate has a very different path in mind. Her true passion lies with photography - and with women.

    Alone in the city after losing her brother, Sicilian immigrant Giuliana Russo starts working for the Winthrops as a maid. Despite their different social status, Kate and Giuliana become friends, much to the dismay of Kate's parents.

    As the connection between the two women grows, a devastating earthquake hits San Francisco and ignites fires that sweep through the city for three days and nights.

    Will the disaster shatter their tentative feelings for each other, or will they find the courage to save each other's lives - and their hearts?

    Contains mature themes.

    Captivating, touching, heartbreaking - fantastic

    I already have read the book two times and now also listend to the audio book. It is still fantastic. Although to know the story already, the audiobook or better the narrator makes it come alive. You nearly can smell the smoke and feel the pain and emotion. Great story by Jae and fantastic work by Ms Cook. thanks a lot.

    Adventurous Story

    It' held me captivated the whole time. The story starts 2 weeks before the earthquake and ends a few days afterwards and contains an additional epilog with a short time laps of a few month. Main topic is the emancipation of women at the turn of the century and the social standards halting them captive. Giuiliana, Kate and Lucy (a doctor at the hospital) fight not only against the horrors of the city in flames after the earthquake but also for their freedom to love and to support themselves.
    The budding love between Kate and Giuiliana develops during their fight for survival in the burning city. And even though each of them discovers unknown feelings towards the other women, they both have to acknowledge the foreign concept of two women in love.
    It's a fascinating soulful story with extraordinary and well depicted charakters who will accompany my thoughts a while longer.
    I will read it again!

    Just Awesome!

    Very beautiful story, capturing your mind in an instant and don’t let go until the last sentence. Samantha Cook is reading this novel with a wonderful voice and let you feel every character through her different stile of voices. The characters of Kate & Guiliana and Lucy are gorgeous. Definitely one of my favourites that I will hear a lot of times!

    History and romance

    Perfect combination for my taste, history and romance.. I love both. Even though a catastrophy hits a bit close to home in times of Lockdown... Jae could become my favorite author... As always a surprise to me she actually lives in Germany, same as me.
