Beautiful Grace DeLong Wilber had never met her famous father, the US Ambassador to Japan. He had died of typhoid when her mother, Elida, was still pregnant. But of all the DeLong children it was Grace who was the most devoted to his memory, and determined that his legacy would not slip into history unknown. So on a beautiful summer day in 1921, after a tumultuous marriage that had ended badly, a cataclysmic earthquake, and the death of her cherished mother, she packed her three grown children and her son's fiancée into her extravagant Pierce Arrow automobile and began a journey to establish a fitting memorial for her father. She did not know that journey would forever alter the course of the entire DeLong family. This fictional work based upon actual events and persons is a study of great love, endurance, tragedy and new beginnings set against a backdrop of the sheer splendor that was San Francisco and Fallen Leaf Lake in the 1920's.

A notification about our contact form inquiries:  A few weeks back,  we endured a spam-bomb attack.  We received literally tens of thousands of emails, via our contact form on the CONTACT page.  Our web guys leapt into action, and put in a "ReCaptcha" element, to try to stop the spam bombs.   And it worked, hooray. However, it apparently also caused a glitch, in which we have NOT received all the submitted inquiries, from real customers and prospective customers. We apologize for this and we're in the process of fixing it. In the meantime, if you do not hear from us same-day, or at the absolute latest, within 24 hours, please email us directly, not using the CONTACT form, but the email address on our CONTACT page in the "How to Reach Us" column, thank you. We apologize for any inconvenience and we hope it's all resolved shortly. 

Thank you for your understanding.
