15 Reviews
Thurston House is the most lavish mansion that the richest man in California can build in the 1880's.. the largest house that San Francisco's exclusive Nob Hill has ever seen ... and a living palace of love built for one woman: Camille. Enchanting, raven haired, and fiery, she is the all-consuming passion that John Thurston has found in the autumn of his life. When she leaves him, bored by his love for his mines, by his endless hours of hard work, Thurston House becomes an empty monument to lost hopes and vanished dreams-lifeless but for one small life.
