Blackwell North Amer
Maggie Conover, a travel writer on assignment in the Caribbean island nation known as la isla, is being held in detention, restricted to her hotel. The authorities are interested in her friendship with Isabel Calderon, the fiery daughter of the island's revolutionary leader. Maggie met Isabel on a previous visit and was struck by her independence, her disgust for her father, and her intense longing to escape. Now Isabel has disappeared, and Maggie is suspected of knowing her whereabouts.
As Maggie is interrogated, bullied, and brought to a fever pitch of anxiety, she recalls Isabel's courage, her own troubled past, and her conflicted feelings for her husband and father. Maggie's struggle with her fear of confinement and need for flight brings the novel to a climax of rich psychological complexity.
