Jeremiah Thurston built Thurston House, San Francisco's grandest mansion. When he found himself alone with his infant daughter, Sabrina, he was determined to bring her up to run the biggest mining business in California. Nothing would stop her from taking over his dynasty -- not the San Francisco earthquake, the deadly schemes of a cunning rival, the Great depression, or her own needs and determination as she carries on the traditions established by her father. From the Paperback edition.

This carefully crafted ebook: “The Complete Works of Charlotte Brontë” contains all 5 novels + Collected Writings and Juvenilia in one volume and is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Tales of Angria (Mina Laury, Stancliffe's Hotel) + Angria and the Angrians: Charlotte Bronte, together with her brother Branwell, created the imaginary kingdom of Angria in 1834. She was to write several Angria tales for the next five years. The Tales of Angria offer an ironic portrait of the intrigues, scandals, and passions. The stories provide a fascinating glimpse into the mind and creative processes of the young writer who was to become one of the world’s greatest novelists. The Story of Willie Ellin: This unfinished fragment contains the poignant story of an abused child. Albion and Marina: A romance about star-crossed lovers, Albion and Marina is a trial run by 14-year-old Charlotte Bronte for Jane Eyre. Tales of the Islanders: The four volumes of tales collected here make delightful reading, while offering a unique insight into Brontë family life and Charlotte’s development as a writer: these are the stories she and her siblings imagined for their magic island kingdom. The stories are charmingly written in a very fairytale-esque style. They are written by a child and therefore are sometimes hard to follow when the stories make big turns, which force the reader to read them slowly and devour each sentence. The Green Dwarf: Lady Emily Charlesworth is in love with Leslie, a struggling artist. Lord Percy, a fierce, arrogant aristocrat, will do anything to lay his hands on Leslie’s chosen bride. With its exotic melange of political intrigue, amorous subterfuge, and Gothic scenery, The Green Dwarf reveals the dynamic and experimental nature of Brontë’s writing. Charlotte Brontë is best remembered for her perennially popular novel Jane Eyre. Collected Writings and Juvenilia: Tales of Angria (Mina Laury, Stancliffe's Hotel) + Angria and the Angrians The Story of Willie Ellin Albion and Marina Tales of the Islanders The Green Dwarf Charlotte Brontë (1816 – 1855) was an English novelist and poet, the eldest of the three Brontë sisters who survived into adulthood and whose novels are English literature standards. She wrote Jane Eyre under the pen name Currer Bell.

Beacon Hill, an historic district and one of the oldest neighborhoods in America, welcomed its first resident in the 1620s. In colonial days, the area served as a strategic look-out point; in the early years of the 1800s it quickly developed into a home for the most prominent and fashionable Bostonians. Its attraction was and still is its architectural continuity and integrity. Cynthia Chalmers Bartlett’s Beacon Hill chronicles the development of this historic area in the early nineteenth to mid-twentieth centuries through a fascinating series of vintage photographs. This exciting compilation will transport readers to the days of horse-and-buggy transportation, early American architecture, and elaborate Victorian attire. The images in this collection pay homage to the homes and headquarters of many eminent American statesmen, artists, authors, and activists. The hill’s illustrious and multicultural past is splendidly documented in this wellresearched and brilliantly-illustrated new book.

McDermot, Nebraska, is a pleasant, scenic western cattle town situated in the Pawnee River valley—just the place for people seeking refuge from their hectic city lives. It is also just the place for those who have made their homes on this haunting prairie since the late nineteenth century. Ideal for both, McDermot means everything to those native inhabitants and something very different to those who are looking for a new life. As the native residents wrestle with the arrival of outsiders, a local journalist uncovers a medical scandal epitomizing the problems facing the divided community. After the death of two men, it falls to the ancient but powerful district attorney to mediate a resolution between the clashing interests of the new and the old West. And the Thurston family, descended from the town’s first citizen, sets out in its own way to fight the forces threatening to destroy it. This is the story of new and old interests colliding, of small western plains towns confronting the forces of “progress.”

A novel of courage, hope and love... From her secret perch at the top of the stairs, seven-year-old Gabriella watches the guests arrive at her parents' lavish Manhattan home. The click, click click of her mother's high heels strikes terror into her heart, as she has been told that she is to blame for her mother's rage - and her father's failure to protect her. Her world is a confusing blend of terror, betrayal and pain, and Gabriella knows that there is no safe place for her to hide. When her parents' marriage collapses, her father disappears and her mother abandons her to a convent, where Gabriella's battered body and soul begin to mend amid the quiet safety and hushed rituals of the nuns. And when she grows into womanhood, young Father Joe Connors comes into her life. Like Gabriella, Joe is haunted by the pain of his childhood, and with her he takes the first steps towards healing. But their relationship leads to disaster as Joe must choose between the priesthood and Gabriella. She struggles to survive on her own in New York, where she seeks escape through her writing, until eventually she is able to find forgiveness, freedom from guilt, and healing from abuse. In this work of daring and compassion, Danielle Steel has created a vivid portrait of an abused child's broken world which will shock and move you to your very soul.
