Description
Teresa Francis could never go home again to the lush Caribbean island of her birth. Even at fifteen, as she fled to Paris to avoid scandal, Teresa knew that the island was her past, never to be spoken of again. Her future lay in New York, in a hasty marriage to a charming, wealthy man who would give her children yet never piece her wall of reserve. But the island was in the Francis blood. And nothing could keep Teresa's son from its shores, so mysterious, so seductive, its extravagant beauty veiling the darkness within. Here he would walk in his mother's steps, in a parallel life, so close to the secrets she buried years before. And here he would find his destiny in the passions of history, political upheaval, and forbidden love. . . .
