    I decided to read this book because of the setting San Francisco at the time of the great earthquake and fire of 1906 I thought it would be romantic supense, but it was a light historical romance which I m sure would be enjoyed by young teens the heroine is only 19 and her 15 year old sister is also prominent in the story The many details of the time and setting seemed authentic after all the author was a young child at the time the events took place and I imagine that she may have spoken to people later who lived through it and made reading this book very enjoyable Despite the disaster setting the story is not grim The title has to do with the idea of fire adversity refining gold the character of the protagonists.

    I actually read this sometime ago Multiple times, actually I stole it from my sister sorry, Amy and never returned it because I liked it so much In my defense, she never ASKED for it back Don t be put off by the goodreads summary This is a novel that is less romance and of a well written fictional account of a family surviving the San Francisco earthquake and fire of 1906 Reading Threads and Flames reminded me of this YA novel I highly recommend them both

    Probably the best historical fiction story of the San Francisco earthquake I know The author spent much time living in the area and researching what happened She took those facts and wove a story that captures the nature and intensity of that major event in San Francisco I explored the city with book in hand and found it authentic and meaningful.

    I usually read Phyllis A Whitney s gothic romance, but there was no mystery here However she did decribe the 1906 San Francisco fire pretty well, so it was a good historical romamce I liked it.

    Phyllis Whitney has done it again She weaves romance nicely into an intriguing suspense novel Pick it up and grab some tea and go on a great adventure.

    I came across this Phyllis Whitney book at the library Since I had not read one of her books in about 35 years and I had not read this one before, I grabbed it up Whitney had been the Danielle Steele of my 30 s.This is a clean romance, and an interesting read from the citizen s perspective of the 1906 fire in San Francisco the courage, determination, hopelessness, kindness, and resilience of a city nearly completely destroyed by a great fire People lost everything Rich and poor alike, if they did not flee, were camping on the grass in parks that had not been touched by fire People opened their homes that had not been destroyed to family, friends, and neighbors.I gave this a good solid 3, meaning I liked it It was a good read for these hot humid days in No Central FL
