ORANGE COUNTY, Calif., April 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- New author Christopher Lentz announced today that his self-published historical romance, Blossom, is available now on Amazon (Kindle and print) and Smashwords.
"It's a dream come true to be sharing my new book, Blossom, leading up to the April 18, 1906, anniversary of the nightmarish San Francisco earthquake and fires, which is the backdrop of the story," said Lentz. "The research process was a time-traveling experience that resulted in Blossom capturing the turn-of-the-century way of life for the fortunate and unfortunate. Readers now can be part of this scandalous love-triangle story that has been called 'Titanic on land.'"
Anne Cleeland, acclaimed author of historical fiction such as Daughter of the God-King and contemporary mysteries, said, "A compelling story of the power of love in the face of an unprecedented disaster; of a man who has to choose between his duty and a love that transcends two cultures. Lentz writes an amazing story that brings the San Francisco earthquake to life—first rate!"
San Francisco, 1906, on the brink of one of Mother Nature's cruelest and most destructive disasters, lovers unite as an earthquake rips the city apart. Chinatown fortune cookie maker Blossom Sun is far from having anything she wants. Atop Nob Hill, socialite Clarissa Donahue is close to having everything she ever desired—that is, until her simple request for fortune cookies triggers an unexpected chain of events.
When Clarissa's unconventional fiance, silver-fortune heir Brock St. Clair, catches a glimpse of Blossom his life turns upside down. Discovering how every secret has a price, Blossom faces the ultimate crossroad. No one could have predicted how an earthquake, firestorm and the desires of three strong-willed families would test the strength of Blossom, Clarissa and Brock. When everything falls apart, who'll be together? Who's going to see tomorrow?
With love at its epicenter, Blossom's story happens over just five days. It's a heart-wrenching portrait of those who experience both unimaginable endings and new beginnings. And it is sure to change what is known about longing, love and loss because in extraordinary times, there are no ordinary choices.
