AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'There it sat, gleaming softly. Small, but perfect. A symbol of purity and, for Alexandre, freedom. A pearl. In the warm waters of the Indian Ocean Alexandre dives for pearls - but they are not his to keep. His talents are far greater than the ability to hold his breath longer than all the other divers. He is an artist, and when he meets the young and beautiful Constance Blackchurch he also finds hope that one day, his life will be different.' (Publisher's blurb)
