From the acclaimed author of Simple Prayers, hailed by Thomas
Keneally as "a work of magic (and) a journey of wonder, " comes the
rich and captivating tale of an extraordinary father and son. Jean
Pierre Michel Chernovsky is a paragon of the Gilded Age, a product
of both Old World and New, and a collector of all things beautiful.
Benjamin Chernovsky is his adopted orphan of the Depression, a boy
whose remarkable beauty is flawed by a strawberry birthmark on his
right cheek and throat and whose mind is blessed with a disturbing
and miraculous gift. United by something more binding than blood,
rivals for the affections of one indomitable and exotic woman, they
will embark upon an odyssey filled with wild adventures and
startling discoveries, a journey that will alter them -- and their
century -- forever.
