Love from the Ashes(2001)
A novel by Denise A Agnew
From the Ashes of Hell itself... During the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire, privileged Grace Wyne and Irish immigrant Nathaniel Dempsey desperately try to rescue LOVE FROM THE ASHES. 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.
