Summary
At once an epic family drama and a sweeping love story that spans both an ocean and a generation, Palm Trees in the Snow is an emotionally gripping and historically vivid tale of the evil that can destroy a family-and the bonds that endure. When Clarence de Rabaltue discovers a series of old letters from her father's past, she begins to doubt everything she thought she knew about her once-noble family. Her father and his brother had been soldiers stationed in the colony of Fernando Po, but for some reason, no tales of life in Africa had ever made it to the dinner table. Clarence has no idea what went on during their time at the cocoa plantations-or why no one in her family has ever returned to the island in all the years since. But the letters suggest that a great love story is buried beneath the years of silence
