Andre has great ambitions and does not hesitate to work hard to achieve them. From rags to riches, Andre becomes the wealthy owner of a plantation and land. Andre marries spoiled and selfish Gabrielle. She makes him wealthy but never happy.
Arlette Gaffrey cleverly weaves the threads of history, culture, real characters, and romance to make a tapestry upon which plays out a love story. The backdrop makes this story. I felt as though I had been transported back in time to the majestic New Orleans of the past. A World Of His Own In the Land Of The Creoles is beautifully written and sure to please readers.
