Summary Growing up on idyllic St. Thomas in the early 1800s, Rachel dreams of life in faraway Paris. Instead she is married off to a widower with three children to save her father's business. When her husband dies suddenly and his handsome, much younger nephew, Frédérick, arrives from France to settle the estate, Rachel seizes her own life story. They begin a defiant, passionate love affair that sparks a scandal that affects all of her family, including her favorite son, who will become one of the greatest artists of France.
