Publisher Description

A runaway heiress . . . a legacy of shame . . . an empire built on blood and revenge . . .

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 multi-billion-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 1960’s, 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 the riveting saga of romantic intrigue.

I'm a big reader and yet this is still one of the best novels ever!

Fortune is a Woman

This is one of thee best books I've ever read. My mother in law gave it to me in late October of 1994. I read it from cover to cover in 2 ½ days. It's also a book I pick up to read when I haven't anything to read. Over the years I've read it 7 times and will do so again. I've had to buy other copies to loan out because whom ever I loan it to in turn loans it out as a MUST read. Pick up to book or download, you won't be sorry!
