Summary
  • "The iconic author of the bestselling phenomenon Crazy Rich Asians returns with a glittering tale of love and longing as a young woman finds herself torn between two worlds--the WASP establishment of her father's family and George Zao, a man she is desperately trying to avoid falling in love with"--
  • On her very first morning on the island of Capri, Lucie Churchill sets eyes on George Zao-- and instantly can't stand him. Especially when he kisses her in the darkness of the ancient ruins of a Roman villa and they are caught by her snobbish, disapproving cousin Charlotte. The daughter of an American-born Chinese mother and a blue-blooded New York father, Lucie has always sublimated the Asian side of herself in favor of the white side, and she adamantly denies having feelings for George. Several years later, when George appears in East Hampton where Lucie is weekending with her new fiancâe, Lucie finds herself drawn to George again. -- adapted from jacket
