520    "In this grand part one of a two-volume saga, inspired by 
       the real lives of history-making titans, The Florios of 
       Sicily brings to life the dark secrets, the loves and 
       betrayals, and the cruel acts of revenge that marked the 
       Florios' century of influence. They were the uncrowned 
       kings of Sicily: restless and ambitious, single-minded and
       determined to be richer and more powerful than anybody 
       else. Yet their beginnings were humble. Vincenzo, who lost
       his father at eight, builds an empire from the docks of 
       Palermo. Driven by an insatiable desire to rise above his 
       station and prove a aristocracy that scorns him wrong, 
       Vincenzo sacrifices family and love to transform his tiny 
       spice shop into a trading empire. The name, Florio, soon 
       instills fear and respect. The men of the family are 
       stubborn, arrogant, philanderers and slaves to passions. 
       Paolo shrewdly fights his way out of an earthquake-striken
       Bagnara to start anew in Sicily. Ignazio II rejects his 
       one true love to fulfill his destiny as the head of a 
       trading empire. Not to be outdone by the men, the Florio 
       women unapologetically demand their place outside the 
       restraints of caring mothers, alluring mistresses, or 
       wounded wives. Giula, though only a mistress, is fiercely 
       intelligent and wins over politicians and businessmen 
       alike. Angelina, born a bastard, charts her own future 
       against the wishes of her father. In this epic yet 
       intimate tale of power, passion, and revenge, the rise and
       fall of a family taps into the universal desire to become 
       more than who we are born as."--Provided by publisher.
