Description

A richly imaginative novel of love, loss, time and the rise and fall of a great maritime empire, that sends two thwarted lovers spiralling through the chaos of history.

The story begins in 1429 on Madeira, when a peasant girl meets a boy- a Jewish outsider- from a Portuguese sailing ship.

Esperanca and Emmanuel know they must part when the ship sails.

From that first meeting and parting, others follow...Emmanuel is in turn sailor, mapmaker, bookseller, jazz musician; Esperanca an illiterate peasant, a rich girl in Faro and a clever, bookish recluse who confronts a murderer in nineteenth-century Lisbon.

In twentieth-century London, Esperanca is faced with a double incarnation, one of the true Emmanuel and the other a shadow.

Over the centuries the couple face peril and tenderness.

Each life is short. What survives is love.
