Overview

Tony Dewitt, his reputation in tatters, is hired to install a newfangled telephone system in Hailey, Idaho. Racial prejudice is rampant, so Tony, who is Chinese, passing as white, conceals his ancestry. Lulu King is of mixed race and proud of it. Having seen firsthand what misery bigotry can cause, she has devoted her life to the campaigns for women's suffrage and equal rights for all. They were childhood friends, but conflicting goals drove them apart. Now fate has brought them to the same small town and the old attraction is difficult to deny. Sabotage to the telephone system and a boycott by the Anti-Chinese League threaten Tony's career and Lulu's convictions. The consequences of their one night of love shadow their future. How long before their very lives are endangered?

Editorial Reviews

Morgan J. Blake
Tony Dewitt wanted to build bridges--and marry Lulu King. Lulu wanted to save the world from racism and bigotry, the whole while trying to forget her love for Tony. Their plans collide in entertaining, passionate style in THE IMPERIAL ENGINEER--a compelling tale.
Anonymous Reviewer
..a powerful read, a story that keeps the reader rooting for Tony and Lulu to make their lives together work in spite of the obstacles they both face. They are dangerously in love and living dangerous lives. Can they: achieve the life that they both want? 4 Stars!
