Oberon (previously published in print as Homecoming) Like all the Hamiltons before her, Sydney Hamilton was born on Oberon, a pristine island in the Chesapeake Bay whose family history dates back to colonial America. In 1948, as a 21year old Wellesley student, Sydney falls in love with struggling actor Jordan Eliot. Casting aside her own ambitions - her legacy to one of the nation's oldest newspapers - Sydney journeys from New York to Hollywood, only to discover that love alone cannot sustain her. Returning to New York, she fights for her place in a changing world and brings the newspaper, and herself, into positions of power. A novel that sweeps across the dramatic events of five decades, Oberon depicts the life of an unforgettable woman who is forced to choose between love and ambition — a woman determined not to live in the shadow of a man. An unforgettable story of a woman who must accept the challenges of her life and destiny— and the yearnings of her heart. Sydney believes Oberon will always be there — a haven from all the challenges the world can offer an ambitious young woman with every advantage of wealth and privilege. Her brother, Evan, has other ideas. He wants to develop it. A fight ensues; The environment versus money and the destruction of what can never be replaced. And Sydney is determined to win. The solution brings Jordan back into her life. But for how long? A dazzling story vast in scope and rich in character, Oberon is guaranteed to hold readers spellbound.
