Despite twenty-five years of self-imposed exile in Paris in the search for personal freedom, legendary black artist Chloe Emmanuel still faces the difficulty of expressing her feelings without a brush. When she reflects on her life, her relationships, and the meaning of her art, she begins to wonder: Is her artistic success linked to her inability to love? A distinguished black professor in England, married to a brilliant British scholar, Michael has modelled her life on the lies that Chloe has lived. When a visiting professor challenges not only her marriage but her reasons for staying devoted to a white man, Michael must sort through the half-truths and deceptions-- and find her way back to that fragile place where real love exists. Unwilling to sacrifice the dreams they dared to make real, Chloe and Michael are forced to the limits of their strength and independence. They must gamble everything to recapture what they have lost...in a dazzling game called Blackgammon.About the Author:
