About the Book
Granddaughter of a loving, but roguish businessman, Blis Dumas can’t escape a legacy of lies. The time is 1989. The place is San Francisco, where painful stories of gentrification, eviction and relocation still echo within its limits.
Clinging desperately to the Victorian home she inherited, she is confronted by a stranger that brings her a life filled with revenge, corruption, and murder. In an unparalleled twist of fate, she discovers that her predicament may have roots buried much closer to home. Blis’ world starts to crumble as she fights the Bureau to save the home she adores; fights the temptation of an incorrigible former lover; and fights the perils threatening the tender passion of a new budding romance.
QUIVER OF THE PURE HEART will appeal to readers that appreciate a social setting that illuminates the universal themes of desire, forgiveness, revenge, and letting go. San Francisco is one of the loves of Blis’ life, and like any love relationship, it is where her emotions will be tested, where romance will live and die, and where people are not always as they seem. Burnita Bluitt offers a spirited and passionate story of love and corruption in the city by the bay.
About the Author:
Burnita Bluitt writes and resides in the San Francisco Bay Area. Now retired from working in the administration of Silicon Valley companies such as McKinsey & Co., Merrill Lynch, and Google, she indulges her love for, and curiosity about, San Francisco’s rich history and architecture.
She loves to garden, sample all of Ben & Jerry's flavors, and eat movie popcorn at the Cineplex. Her debut novel, Quiver of the Pure Heart, began as a love-letter to San Francisco’s painted ladies.
However, after uncovering the Western Addition Victorian’s dark history, she felt compelled to shine a light on their unsavory past, and on the forces that left an indelible impact on the Fillmore community which is still felt today.
