Oberon (previously published as Homecoming) - A dazzling story that starts on a pristine island paradise in the Chesapeake Bay, then takes us to the glitter of Hollywood, then the sedate offices of a New York newspaper to Washington D.C.'s corridors of power. A tale vast in scope and rich in character, is guaranteed to hold readers spellbound.
Like all the Hamiltons before her, Sydney Hamilton was born on Oberon Island. The island in the Chesapeake Bay stood witness to a family history that dated back to colonial America. Oberon held all the enchanted memories of childhood. In 1948, as 21-year-old Wellesley student, Sydney meets struggling actor Jordan Eliot. Casting aside her own ambitions -- her legacy to one of the nation's most powerful newspapers, Sydney journeys from New York to Hollywood... only to discover that love along cannot sustain her. Returning to New York, she fights for her legacy and her place in a changing world.
Sydney, believes Oberon will always be there -- a haven from all the challenges the world can offer an ambitious young woman with every advantage of wealth and privilege.
