On the eighteenth of April in 1906 a violent earthquake
shook San Francisco. The fires that followed turned the city
into a burning, smoky nightmare. That was the day Melora
Cranby returned from Chicago. Unaware of the crisis ahead,
her thoughts were on handsome Quent Seymour of Nob Hill.
Their engagement must be broken when she reached home,
however much it might disturb her mother.
But in one day the comfortable world she knew was swept
away. When she reached the house, her family was gone and
the fire was creeping closer. In the streets thousands of
distraught refugees pushed their way to parks high above the
frightening sounds of the angry, red flames. Beneath them
the city crackled and roared and exploded.
For Melora the days that followed were filled with new
experiences. There was the surprising encounter with
impetuous Tony Ellis; and the conflict that was to grow
between Tony and Quent-a conflict into which her younger
sister Cora was drawn. There was her mother who had such
definite ideas about the man Melora should marry. However,
spirited Melora had as many ideas of her own.
By New Year's Eve a new San Francisco was emerging from the
ruins and Melora was ready to make an important decision
about her life and her love.
