The Nature of Fragile Things

Author : Susan Meissner

Genre : Fiction

I read several of Susan Meissner’s books.I found this one, The Nature of Fragile Things, to be a fascinating story of women taking care of each other even though they are strangers in the beginning. Sophie Whalen is a young Irish immigrant so desperate to get out of a New York apartment that she answers a mail-order bride ad. Instantly, she finds herself married to handsome Martin Hocking and caring for his five-year old daughter, whose work is strangely secret. On the eve of the San Francisco earthquake that occurred on April 18, 1906, Sophie learns one of the secrets her husband is hiding from her, and eventually unravels others also. In the process, her own story about leaving Ireland comes to light.
