Raised in a New Orleans mansion filled with kindness and laughter, Pearl Andreas dreams of going to college and becoming a doctor. With all the finest families wishing her well, her high shool graduation party is almost as festive as Mardi Gras itself. But even a famous jazz band's beat cannot drive away her fear that she will never know the magic of romantic passion, or the truth of her family's buried secrets. Yet her summer job as a nurse's aide in an elegant old hospital is as fascinating as she hoped it would be...and an experienced intern is eager to share his friendship with her.

But the sultry Louisiana heat cannot dispel her family's sinful legacy, or the cruel acciedent that befalls one of Pearl's twin brothers. Then the bayou that caught him in its spell beckons to her mother, Ruby, who flees, tormented, backk to her cajun roots. With pearl's other brother deathly ill, and her father retreating into his own bourbon soaked world, Pearl's cherished dreams swirl away with the hurricane winds.

Seeking her mother and the shocking truths of her heritage, she finds a blessed refuge in the arms of a cajun man, the gentlest friend she has ever known. But only when the storm clouds clear can she savor the springtime sweetness that always, always cannot seem beyond tomorrow...
