New Orleans before the Civil War - raw, legendary, sensual. Amongst the waterfronts, the slave markets and the gilded ballrooms lived a unique people, descended from African slaves and from the French and Spanish who had enslaved them. They were the gens de couleur libre - the Free People of Colour - fierce and proud, neither black nor white, but caught between the two, free and yet not free. Out of this race came Marcel, the mesmeric copper-skinned youth, adored by all yet dreaming of distant lands, and his sister Marie, who longed for love and marriage in a world ready to sell her to the highest bidder. Like all their people, they were caught perilously between the worlds of master and slave, privilege and oppression, passion and pain.
