Description

"Memorable at every turn and set against the backdrop of a 19th century America that was, like the novel's protagonist, many different things all at once." (Edward Rutherfurd, author of Paris)

In the home where Arabella Godwin was raised it is forbidden to speak her name, and her picture is turned to the wall. But in the turbulent America of the 1850s, everyone knows her as "Belle Cora", madam of San Francisco's finest bordello. Judges and senators do her bidding; a vicious newspaper editor plots her downfall; a preacher looks at her from across his pulpit and tries to forget that once she was his wife. Merchant's daughter, farm girl, prostitute, mother, madam, murderess, avenger, protector — she has worn all these masks: the only thing that never changes is her tireless pursuit of the one man who can see her for who she really is.

"An enthralling historical drama...told with sympathy, feeling, humor, and accuracy. Phillip Margulies is a superb writer." (Kevin Baker, author of The Big Crowd)
