From life on cattle ranches to the drawing rooms of the wealthy‚ from the bedrooms of bawdy houses to the wooden platforms of a tent colony‚ Mary Ellen Dennis paints intimate portraits of the characters who walked their spaces. From parlor girl‚ pauper and prospector to patriarch‚ plutocrat and profligate‚ she brings them alive. Blending love‚ hate‚ passion‚ greed‚ self-sacrifice‚ frailty and strength‚ Heaven’s Thunder is an authentic tapestry of its time.
“Set against the backdrop of the gold rush and the dawn of Hollywood‚ Dennis’s third novel (after Stars of Fire) features a large cast of compelling characters‚ an ambitious span of time‚ and emotional depth.”
