In the days before the Civil War, there lived a Louisiana people unique in Southern histroy. Though descended from African slaves, they were also descended from the French and Spanish who enslaved them. Called the Free People of Color, this dazzling historical novel chronicles the lives of four of them--men and women caught perilously between the worlds of master and slave, privilege and oppression, passion and pain.

The most stunningly beautiful work of an author much more famous for her supernatural and erotic fiction, this book follows the stories of four beautiful and gifted young people. Obsessive, wounded Marcel; proud, rule-bound Richard; sweet, strong Anna Bella; and lovely Marie, who seems so priveleged and who is in fact so powerless and whose real self is utterly invisible to everybody but Richard; all are completely unforgettable.
