She was a girl as beautiful and innocent as her family's lush Caribbean plantation—until she discovered the darkness of desire and became a woman. Expelled from paradise, Teresa Francis would be swept into marriage and the opulence of New York only to be drawn back to her island, where secrets can ignite explosions of political upheaval and clandestine love.
