Description: Julia Ashley was born to a life of dramatic twists and tragedy. Her future and any possible lasting happiness depended entirely on a "glove marriage" to a man who was no more than a name.

The Dutch East Indies in the 17th century were the lands of legendary riches; of "nutmeg princes"; of fortunes built on barbaric plantations and slavery. And amid the extravagance, the cruelty and the bizarre customs, perhaps the strangest events of all were the curious weddings that sent girls halfway around the world to husbands they had never seen.

Julia took her "glove" - of yellow, pearl-sewn silk - and began the journey to the island of Rua, to a land of seeming paradise where nothing was exactly as it appeared.
