Esteemed travel writer Patrick Leigh Fermor set this novel (his only one) in the tropical luxury of the Caribbean island of Saint-Jacques. Fermor's main character is an enigmatic elderly Frenchwoman. She recalls the island's romantic, decadent lifestyle and how a fading French aristocracy met its catastrophic end in the shadow of Saint-Jacques' volcano.
