The New York Times Bestselling Author of Scents and Treasures

A powerful story of hope and freedom, passion and unrequited love (

Lareyna Dunne is a child of war who knows nothing of the mother who risked her life to get her daughter to freedom. Exiled and lonely in the strange new world of America's East Coast elite, Lari struggles to fit in—and to understand the father who can barely acknowledge her, all the while searching for the mother she lost, the missing piece of herself.

But Lari blossoms from an awkward teenager into a stunning and determined woman, whose talents pave the way for a brilliant future in the glamorous world of interior design. As she boldly challenges the arbiters of American taste, she dares to savor the pleasures of passion. One man will seduce her with reckless desire, another with friendship. But her heart is claimed by a dedicated photojournalist who dares to live out his dream—and helps Lari to discover hers. Their love, strengthened by adversity, tested by time and impossible odds, will offer Lari a magical chance to bring past and present full circle at last (.
