Society tore them apart. Disaster brought them together.

A privileged suffragette and an Irish immigrant chauffer tackle societal norms and class prejudice during one of the greatest earthquakes ever recorded – but can they rescue their love from the ashes? Set during the 1906 Great San Francisco Quake and Firestorm.

Grace and Nate seek freedom and a new life in San Francisco but society, her family and forces of Nature, wage war against them.

Nate is torn by the death of his family in Ireland.  Yet he finds Grace's spirit and strength a balm for his soul. She joins a suffragette organization, but when she encounters scorn and violence, Nate vows to protect her. 

She is determined to marry for love, and now is stunned by her feelings for a man far beneath her social status.  There is more than one danger to face--for the earth is unstable and their forbidden love is a sure formula for disaster. 

When the earth trembles and breaks apart, only Nature knows who will live to love again... and who will die.
