Celine Winters escapes suspicion of a murder she has not committed by exchanging places with another young woman desperate to avoid marriage to Cord Moreau, whose cruel Creole grandfather is making him marry her in the place of his dead cousin Alex. Too late Celine finds herself married and on a ship leaving New Orleans en route to the West Indies, Cord's happy childhood home. Landis (After All, Jove, 1995) fashions an interesting blend of Creole social history, the tropics, and false identities revealed in the collision of past and present lives. Cord's alcoholic melancholia certainly places him in the wounded hero gallery, but his failings are more than offset by Celine's resourcefulness and the hilarious scheming of his two male servants.-MKC
