This universally acclaimed novel - everywhere hailed for its evocative descriptions, its compelling characters, its intricate plot - transports us to Elba, an island off the northwest coast of Italy, in the mid-1950s. It is here that an American man, seduced by the wealth promised in the island's surfeit of semi-precious tourmaline, has traveled with his wife and four young sons, and now struggles to establish a homestead and a fortune. But the allure of one of Elba's other treasures - a bewitching local girl - derails his quest and threatens to destroy his family.
