Introduction

2010 Independent Publisher Book Award Winner (IPPY) - Silver Medal in Multicultural Fiction

Julia Castro travels to her family's ancestral home in the Azores, after her father's disappearance, to find the islands abuzz with tales of ghost ships, seductive sirens, and a new island emerging from the sea. While searching for her father, Julia succumbs to the bewitching allure of the Azores, and to Nicolau, a fellow musician, who appears to hold as many secrets as the islands themselves. She discovers a place where dreams lie just beyond the horizon, shrouded in mist. History, legend, poetry and myth, are seamlessly interwoven, exploring the line between fate and self-determination, past and present, reality and illusion. The novel is a lyrical evocation of a locale and a people.
