As San Francisco rises from the ashes, an age-old battle looms between corruption and the promise of new beginnings.
The earthquake devastated San Francisco two years ago but the city is still trying to recover. Destruction of this magnitude is not easy to overcome—which is something Elizabeth King understands.
Past regrets shadow Elizabeth’s future. Hoping to right her wrongs, she dedicates herself to helping girls rescued from slavery in Chinatown brothels. Sneaking through gloomy alleys and rooftops where danger lurks, Elizabeth risks her own life for the sake of these girls. But when it comes to opening her heart she is infinitely more terrified.
So when Elizabeth meets attorney Charles McKinley, a man who dreams of reforming San Francisco’s crooked politics, Elizabeth begins to doubt: Can she maintain her pretense and hide her past? Or will she find love and faith through the shadows of turmoil?
