Summary (From the publisher):

The three met in the aftermath of San Francisco's devastating 1906 earthquake -- the Mandarin Lai Tsin, a runaway American heiress, and a young Englishwoman. Against all odds they made their dreams come true, building one of the world's largest trading companies and most luxurious hotels...

They had only each other -- and bloody secrets to bury even as they rose to dizzying heights, wary of love yet vulnerable to passion in its most dangerous forms...

The Mandarin would pass his multibillion-dollar empire only to the women in the Lai Tsin dynasty -- along with one last devastating truth...

Sweeping from the turn of the century through the 1960s, from the Orient to San Francisco and New York, Elizabeth Adler has written a magnificent novel of new wealth and old privilege, family passions and secret shame, of women surviving, triumphant, in this riveting saga of romantic intrigue.
