Goa, on the western coast of India, is an isolated area, a Portuguese colony. It is the blending of old-world Christian culture with traditional Indian society that makes life in Tivolem, a village in Goa, so unique. Connected to the outside world only by occasional travelers, static filled radio broadcasts, and the journeys abroad of select residents, Tivolem remains an island, untouched - but not unchanged - by the threat of war in Europe and the rise of Gandhi in India.

Against this rich backdrop, Rangel-Ribeiro focuses on young Marie Santana who finds sanctuary in the quiet daily life of Tivolem after her family moved abroad many years earlier. Returning home from the heartbreak and betrayal inflicted by her former fiance, Marie-Santana finds Tivolem filled with eccentric personalities and a multitude of unexpected adventures.
