Born into wealth in New Orleans in 1795, Micaela Almonester was married into misery in France sixteen years later. Against a richly woven historical background of two centuries and two vivid societies. Christina Vella unfolds the amazing true account of this resilient woman's life - and the three men who most affected its course: her father, Andres, an illustrious New Orleans builder in whose footsteps she eventually followed with great distinction; her father-in-law, Xavier, who for more than twenty years tried to destroy her marriage and seize control of her fortune, eventually shooting Mica.
