Born into a family of wealth, stunning Rosemarie Delrio should have wanted for nothing, yet judged as a misfit and an outcast by the society from whom she craves acceptance, she is the epitome of loneliness and need. Neither white nor Negro, but a mixture of both, white Americans identify Rosemarie with her darker kin. Biracial, with cafİ-au-lait skin earning names such as high yeller, nigger, and half-breed, not even the early lessons learned from discrimination and racial slurs can toughen the sensitivity to living a life of rejection. Born as the offspring of two ethnic groups, she belongs to neither and suffers rejection by both. Only when she meets the powerful, masculine, and charming figure of Beau Broussard, who fills a lifetime void with his love, can she come to understand her world need not be defined by the color of her skin.
