Trost findet sie in den Geschichten ihres Vaters Arie, eines Seefahrers, der ihr oft von fernen, faszinierenden Ländern erzählt. Als Arie sein Glück in Südamerika sucht, träumt auch seine Tochter davon, die karge Insel zu verlassen. In ihrer Not nimmt sie den Antrag des Weinbauern Bonifacio an und geht mit ihm nach Madeira. Doch die Ehe wird zum Gefängnis. Den einzigen Ausweg sieht die junge Frau in der Flucht in die Neue Welt.

Ein bewegender Roman der Bestsellerautorin Linda Holeman mit einem zusätzlichen Kapitel über dessen Entstehungsgeschichte.
