About the Book

The Nature of Fragile Things is an intimate mystery told with an urgency that accelerates toward the inevitable devastation of the San Francisco earthquake. The story follows a young Irish immigrant, whose secrets take her from the lower east side to the west coast as a mail order bride for an aloof man with a small, silent daughter.This new husband has secrets of his own. Soon, hidden ties to two other women are discovered, and the power of female solidarity is tested. Susan Meissner spins a tale that twists and turns through early 20th century San Francisco, where tremors and truths are waiting to crack the city and its characters wide open.

To be released on February 2, 2021, this book is widely available for pre-order now in Hardcover, Kindle, and Audiobook.
