"Emily Warren Roebling refuses to live conventionally--she knows who she is and what she wants, and she's determined to make change. Then her husband, Wash, the chief engineer of the Brooklyn Bridge, is injured on the job.

But as the project takes shape under Emily's direction, she wonders whose legacy she is building--hers, or her husband's."--from back cover.
