Gracelin O'Malley arrives in 1850s San Francisco, the City of Gold, in the thrilling final novel of Ann Moore's acclaimed historical trilogy
With her two children, Gracelin O'Malley travels to post-Gold Rush San Francisco to meet the sea captain who has proposed marriage to her. But when she arrives, he is nowhere to be found. Destitute in a city filled with gangs, disillusioned soldiers, and professional gamblers, Grace takes a position as a cook for one of the city's most prominent doctors--only to become caught up in a tangled web of blackmail and betrayal. Determined to make a secure life for her children and find her brother, Sean, Gracelin sets in motion a series of events that change the future of everyone around her, never dreaming that the man she thought she'd lost forever is still alive and determined to find his way back to her.
Dickensian in scope, with a full cast of riveting characters, Ann Moore's 'Til Morning Light is the stunning conclusion to the enthralling story of Gracelin O'Malley, a heroine for the ages.
