Over the next 20 years their paths diverge and reconverge. Chase marries into the Italian aristocracy and Peter pursues his passion for Lorenzo, a beautiful young Florentine. The past impinges on the present as the story of Chases ancestor, Orvil Starkweather, is revealed -- the secrets of his life sounding a counterpoint to Chases. New York Citys Central Park and the imposing figure of designer Frederick Law Olmsted provide a mysterious connection to Chases life. The story of the two men unfolds in Florence and New York exposing the unimagined and startling connection with the past, and taking them finally on a fateful cruise up the Nile aboard the luxury yacht, The Blue Star.
