Description
An award-winning author brings the story of one American girl to life.

When Minnie Bonner's father disappears, the wealthy gentleman Edward Sump, led by his avaricious wife, offers Minnie a chance to work as a lady's maid. The Sumps have grand plans, grander than the city of Philadelphia can offer, and decide to move to San Francisco - the greatest city in the west. But when a powerful earthquake strikes, Minnie finds herself the sole survivor among them. After the dust settles, Minnie discovers a bag belonging to the Sumps filled with cash and papers. With no one else to claim it, Minnie has turned into an heiress overnight. Wealth comes at a price, however, and she is soon wrapped up in a deception that leads her down a dangerous path.
