From back cover:A funeral and some family business--that' s what Julia Bentley expects when she travels to the Philippines to bury her grandfather. Instead, she discovers a place where the past and present, Spanish and Asian, primitive and civilized mingle in a melange as spicy and colorful as the paella her relatives dish up for special occasions. A place where children hitch rides on cattle and others wield loaded guns. Where guerrillas lurk in the jungle and volcanoes and governments are threatened to blow. Where stories haunt her ancestral home - the grand but decaying Hacienda Esperanza, Plantation of Hope - and danger lurks behind every tree. How can a land so foreign, and so troubled,fill her with a strange peace? And would staying mean risking her life...or finding it at last?
