IT BEGAN WITH THE ATTEMPTED KIDNAPPING OF A YOUNG
ITALIAN PRINCESS BY AN IMPOVERISHED GARDNER
The abduction failed, but the Princess Sylvia dell' Acqua and its hideous retribution were the first links of a family chain that extended from the old world to the new. It led to the adoption of Franco's brother, Victor, by the Dexters, a great American banking family...to a marriage between this ambitious young man and Lucille, the most sought-after beauty in New York society...to a dynasty that would climb to the heights of power and prestige in both Italy and the United States and descend to the depths of guilt and shame...to its ultimate salvation by Gabriella, the ugly duckling turned swan--an extraordinary woman, loving, sensual, the true inheritor of her grandfather's Italian blood.
