(From the publisher):
They meet by chance on Copacabana Beach: Tristão Raposo, a poor black teen from the Rio slums, surviving day to day on street smarts and the hustle, and Isabel Leme, an upper-class white girl, treated like a pampered slave by her absent though very powerful father. Convinced that fate brought them together, betrayed by families who threaten to tear them apart, Tristão and Isabel flee to the farthest reaches of Brazil's wild west—unaware of the astonishing destiny that awaits them....
Spanning twenty-two years, from the mid-sixties to the mid-eighties, Brazil surprises and embraces the reader with its celebration of passion, loyalty, and New World innocence.
