The Blue Gypsy is a spectacular Caribbean pearl that has been in the Williams family for over four hundred years.
For thirteen generations, the Blue Gypsy travels with Buccaneer Thomas Williams’s descendants, who revere and treasure the pigeon egg–sized pearl, believing it to have protective powers. However, the bloody history in which it was acquired follows it.
In 1974, the past finally catches up with Thomas Williams’s heirs, and it falls to Jack Colquhoun, eleventh great-grandson of the buccaneer, his mother and pearl custodian, Lala Colquhoun, and longtime ally Spencer Duffy to cross swords with dangerous adversaries. What ensues is a fight not only for possession of the pearl but for the very wealth and continuance of their family, for possession of the pearl has never been solely about its monetary value but the Williams family’s history and legacy.
As storms brew on St. Croix, in the US Virgin Islands, Lala, Jack, and Spencer are lashed by more than violent winds when they come face-to-face with the long-lost scions of the Williams family, Antonia Toset and her crazed daughter Dolores.
