France, 1788. The winds of change are blowing. The priceless necklace, the Cross of Nantes, lost in 1759, has reappeared on the neck of Estelle Guerrier. Her brother Guillaume, having lit Grenoble on fire, enters the world of Parisian theater and revolution. In 1832 Haiti, decades later, Jake Loring, legally blackmailed to search for the Heirlooms, finds that his life, and the characters he pursues, impossibly become a triangle, coming together as if time had no power to separate them.
