From California’s rugged Big Valley to the fleeting glory of the Silver Screen, one family struggles to save its heritage.
AT PLAY IN THE PROMISED LAND California Chronicles, 1915–1923
In the final installment of her sweeping trilogy, The California Chronicles, award-winning author Diane Noble follows the descendents of the original rancho families into the Twentieth Century. Once again, the California of yesteryear comes to life through three unforgettable characters…
JULIET ROSE DEARBOURNE … From childhood she has planned to leave the dull land of her ancestors. When tragedy strikes the family, care of Juliet’s younger sisters doesn’t thwart her desire to run away to New York. Her journey to stardom on stage and in silent film is swift, but the price of fame is dear.
CLAY MACGREGOR … A private detective and part-time stunt flyer for the flickers, Clay is hired by Aislin Dearbourne to track down her missing grandchildren. An easy job. Or so he thinks…until he meets the single-minded Juliet and her five lively siblings.
SULLIVAN "SULLY" DEARBOURNE … Captured by a primitive tribe, Juliet’s brother Sully finds himself in the Brazilian jungles fighting for his life and for that of their father, Quaid Dearbourne.
