Born on the island of Saint-Domingue, Zarite—known as Tete—is the daughter of an African mother she never knew and one of the white sailors who brought her into bondage. When twenty-year-old Toulouse Valmorain arrives on the island in 1770, he purchases young Tete for his bride. Yet it is he who will become dependent on the services of his teenaged slave.

Against the merciless backdrop of sugar cane fields, the lives of Tete and Valmorain grow ever more intertwined. When the bloody revolution of Toussaint Louverture arrives, they flee the brutal conditions of the French colony that will become Haiti for the raucous, free-wheeling enterprise of New Orleans. There, Tete finally forges a new life, but her connection to Valmorain is deeper than anyone knows and not easily severed.

Isabel Allende is the author of nine novels, translated into more than twenty-seven languages, including the New York Times bestsellers Inés of My Soul, Portrait in Sepia, and Daughter of Fortune. In 2004 she was inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Born in Peru and raised in Chile, she lives in California.Nacida en ...
