About this title

Synopsis:

Don Lavette, the son of an Italian fisherman, battles from the ruins of the San Francisco earthquake to build a fortune in the shipping industry. Rising to success he risks all for the exotic beauty of a woman who shares his secret passion.

From the Back Cover:

A love story of tremendous beauty ... a tale of passion, adventure, and ambition set against the streets of San Francisco, America's most romantic city.

Dan Lavette, the son of an Italian fisherman, battles from the rubble of the San Francisco earthquake to build a fortune in the shipping industry. Rising to success through hard work and a loveless marriage to the daughter of the city's wealthiest family, he risks it all for the exotic beauty of a woman who shares his secret and scandalous passion.

From Nob Hill to the harbor, San Francisco comes alive through three immigrant families -- Italian, Irish, and Chinese -- whose intertwining dreams are propelled by the emotional events of America's coming of age...
