"Although this is in no way a novel about a racial problem, the relationship between Bella and Hadriano is one which no one - least of all those who wish them well - can leave alone, it is inevitably affected by their interference, their demands and their judgements. Through the long, hot days of summer their life together becomes increasingly difficult, and contrasting events at a Christmas party and a voodoo ceremony in the hills make it, for a time, impossible. Hadriano feels the magnetic pull of his own race and background, and for Bella the old world and its values seem to shut him out of her life."
