Overview

Dashing English diplomat Charles Kittridge relished the abundant pleasures of the world...and in his far-flung wanderings, he left behind three remarkable daughters:

Ailsa Rose, a beauty of the Scottish highlands, endowed with her father's lust for adventure. She betrays her heart to follow the one man who promises her the world.

Li-an hates the devil-father who made her a blue-eyed outcast in her Chinese homeland. But withher brilliant, reckless lover, she almost forgets her shame...until he is wrenched from her arms.

Genevra, the gentle English daughter, lives amidst the splendor and squalor of India. Though unexpected passion promises her a joyous love, she must fight to escape the terrors and scandals of the past.

Each of them has grown to womanhood haunted by a legacy of betrayal, longing and dreams. Now their father has but one final desire...to bring together the daughters he has never known....

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Set in the 1800s, this is the flowery, romantic tale of three half-sisters, outcasts all, fathered by a roving Englishman. Bound by loss, anger and the gift of second sight, the trio convenes at their dying father's request. ``Scotland, China and India are colorfully sketched, but Davis tells a remarkably similar story in all three settings. Dull predictability is the result,'' concluded PW. (Jan.)
Joyce Slater
"Stunning.....Richly textured....It will remind you of 'The Five Pavilions' or 'The Thornbirds'...." -- Chicago Tribune
