Christopher Lentz The title of the book is both a proper noun and a verb. Blossom is the heroine/protagonist of the trilogy. She's a restless fortune-cookie maker in San Francisco's Chinatown. The first book takes place during the five days leading up to and including the massive 1906 earthquake that destroyed much of the city. It's a cross-cultural love triangle. It's suspenseful like the movie TITANIC, in that the reader knows the disaster is coming but the characters do not. Who will live and love to see another day????
