From the Author:

This book has as its central theme: the adaptability to change. It was actually fun writing this book. My professional experience involved a lot of research, but this novel introduced a new type of research. I admit researching for the novel is much easier than the research I'm use to, but it is a heck of a lot more exciting and really stimulates the imagination.
There are three main characters, actually four, who confront each other as they move through life and their destinies. There is actually a fourth character, but you won't discover much about him until I finish the sequel (this May or June).
Much of the novel is action packed, but that doesn't take place until later in the novel as the characters are developed and defined; their strengths and weaknesses revealed. I did it that way to enable the reader to understand, or get a hint at, how they would respond to change - dramatic change.
The end is different because I do leave the reader hanging somewhat. I did that knowing that the story was not finished.

From the Inside Flap:

The setting for this story takes place in Brazil. There is the beautiful starlet, Duran, and the troubled soldier of fortune, Slate Madison, who meet in Sao Paulo through a mutual friend. The two eventually fall in love, but the past of Slate proves to be insurmountable until he learns the true meaning of life.
Duran is the consummate lover and survivor. Her agility in love and life enables her to overcome any and all impediments.
