THE GIRL ON
The lives of five survivors intertwine during the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire.
I love history. At its core, it is about human nature: learning how others who have come before us have overcome challenges—some of which we still face today. History can give us a deeper perspective and can provide solace and hope, knowing we have been through tough times before.
-Doris Kearns Goodman
