about

First published in 1946, The Turquoise is the story of the bewitching Santa Fe Cameron, one of Anya Seton's most unforgettable heroines.Santa Fe Cameron was named for the town where she was born, because her Scottish father and a distressed priest could agree on no other name.&nbspWhen she is seven years old, the unexpected death of her father makes her an orphan. Shortly thereafter, a Navajo shaman recognizes her psychic powers and gives her a turquoise pendant as a keepsake. This turquoise, the Indian symbol of the spirit, dominates her life. She eventually leaves the simple beauty of her native New Mexico to search for happiness in the opulent New York of the 1870s.

For "Fey," life is made up of violent contrasts: the rough wagon that brings her East and the scented carriages waiting before her own Fifth Avenue mansion; the glittering world of the Astors and a dreary cell in the Tombs. All the color, excitement, and rich period detail that distinguish Anya Seton's novels are here, together with one of her most unusual heroines.
ANYA SETON (1904-1990) was the author of many best-selling historical novels, including Katherine, The Winthrop Woman, Avalon, Dragonwyck, Green Darkness, Devil Water, and Foxfire. She lived in Greenwich, Connecticut.
