From the Publisher:

She was the exquisite daughter of a wealthy Jewish merchant. From a charmed girlhood in opulent New Orleans, she would be swept into the cataclysm of the Civil War. Forced to choose between her duties as a Southern wife and mother and her love for a forbidden man, a forbidden cause, Miriam Raphael is at the center of the whirlwind in a spellbinding novel of divided loyalties and divided hearts.

"Rich, colorful, and compelling." -- John Barkham Reviews.

"Belva Plain doesn't know how not to write a best-seller." -- Newsday.

From the Back Cover:

David and Miriam Raphael found their life transformed the minute their wandering father returned to their poor European village. The year was 1835. He had come to take his children away -- to a fairy-tale existence in New Orleans, to a great house, a business dynasty, and a magnificent city. But he was also ripping them away from their heritage.

Now, as David faces becoming a man amid courtly Creole manners and slave estates, he is forced to make a devastating choice, risking a future as an outcast...and his father's enemy. And as Miriam grows into exquisite young womanhood, she too will be caught in a struggle of divided loyalties...and in a great tide rising in American history: a fight between North and South that would test her faith-and her growing passion for a forbidden love....
