About the Book
Taylor, Texas - 1915

16-year-old Danica does not want to live the life of her Croatian immigrant parents. She wants to be an American girl with her modern haircut, clothing, and attitude. Her mother dislikes Danica's desire for education and independence. A marriage is arranged with a local boy from another Croatian farm family. Knowing that marriage to the farm boy would not allow her to study and read books, she runs away to New Orleans where she finds work at the Dalmatcia Hotel. There she meets interesting and good people who become fond of her. She lives at the hotel, shops at the French Market, and is pursued by two handsome men. A chance meeting with a former schoolteacher brings her two worlds back together.

 

Reviews
Rosemary, I must tell you how much I have enjoyed reading your "Destiny" books. I have devoured most of the series in the past week, much to the detriment of other responsibilities, but much to my own joy. I don't know quite how I stumbled on them, but I am so glad that I did. Your interweaving of intriguing and compelling stories with language, history, music and customs of our rich Croatian heritage makes for a very fine read, indeed.
- Mary A.
Oh, please don't stop writing about the Croatian immigrants, I can relate to every story you tell and it's wonderful.
- Dianna V.
