Why do I have it? I love Belva Plain as an author and have read and enjoyed several books by this author in the past.
She was a girl as innocent and beautiful as her family’s lush Caribbean plantation – until she learned about dark desire and became a woman. Banished from paradise, Teresa Francis was swept into marriage and motherhood in opulent New York – a world away from her beautiful St. Felice island. But eventually, the secrets that refused to stay buried would draw her back again to paradise. A paradise now in the throws of revolution, which forces Teresa to confront her past and watch her future unfold.
I loved this book. I think that Belva Plain is perhaps one of my favorite authors. I particularly enjoyed how the characters interacted together and the writing was wonderful, in my opinion. If I had one dislike of this book, it was that it was slightly too long. I find that I can’t really read long books anymore. Overall, though, I give this book an A+!
A+! – (96-100%)
