Annotation:
Maggie Conover is writing a travel guide, and has come to the Carribbean island nation known as "la isla" to do research. But she finds herself detained and confined to a hotel room, thanks to her relationship to Isabel, the daughter of the island's despotic revolutionary leader. Under house arrest, Maggie is interrogated, bullied, and ultimately terrified--but it is through her recollections of Isabel's courage and troubled past that she finds a reserve of strength she never knew she had.

Praise

New York Times Book Review
"Once more Ms. Morris explores how the confirmed stay-at-home and the keen voyager have more in common than you might think: both seek a private zone, a still center, away from the hurly-burly of regular life." - James Saynor 07/14/1996
