Abstract

**Warning: Some readers may find certain scenes in this book disturbing.**

Serena Marston, a recent widow after an arranged marriage, decides to stay in St. Augustine despite being homesick for her native England. Because St. Augustine is transferred back to the Spanish in 1784, she finds herself surrounded by strangers who speak a completely different language. However, Serena holds onto a fortune teller’s promise of true love and treasure, eventually meeting Rafael Aguilera y Perez, nicknamed “The Eagle of the Sea.” Though he was determined to find revenge, Rafael soon returns Serena’s love.

Local locations visited or mentioned include, but are not limited to the Governor's house/government house (Governor's House Cultural Center and Museum) and St. George Street.
