Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
1952, French Indochina. Since her mother's death, half-French, half-Vietnamese Nicole has been living in the shadow of her beautiful older sister, Sylvie. When Sylvie is handed control of the family silk business, Nicole is given an abandoned silk shop in the Vietnamese quarter of Hanoi. But the area is teeming with militant rebels who want to end French rule. For the first time, Nicole is awakened to the corruption of colonial rule-- and her own family's involvement shocks her to the core. Tran, a Vietnamese insurgent, seems to offer the perfect escape from her troubles, while Mark, a charming American trader, is the man she's always dreamed of. But who can she trust in this world where no one is what they seem?
