The passionate saga of three generations of San Francisco women, who are bound by blood and a fierce determination to survive in a new frontier, in an untamed land. It is a heritage passed down from mother to daughter, beginning with...
Juliette... a beautiful young French woman who arrives in a bawdy and brawling San Francisco during the Gold Rush and becomes a saloon proprietress until she meets a hot-blooded Scandinavian.
Christina... her defiant daughter who flouts San Francisco's Snob Hill traditions and breaks every rule, including the unspoken one between a man and a woman.
Maria... Determined and forthright, she fearlessly takes on Chinese Tong Lords and kidnappers, to rescue a young Chinese girl from prostitution...until she's rescued by a man who matches her will for will.
