Heroes and scoundrels are not born - they are forged in the crucible of experience. Nothing anneals like living. A Veil of Fog and Flames is the tale of young lives poised on a moral tightrope, their stories woven into the fabric of 1851 San Francisco: a city that establishes rules as it pleases - and breaks them as easily.
Into the roiling cauldron that is San Francisco, fifteen-year-old Guinevere (Guine) Walker and Jack Moylan face issues and questions that thrust them into adulthood and mold their very nature. Do they conform or rebel? Do they succumb to social conventions and restrictions? Or do they pursue their dreams in defiance of the pressure?
