Book summary: The Crown of Columbus


The Crown of Columbus chronicles the adventures of a pair of mismatched lovers and their quest for the truth about Christopher Columbus and themselves. Vivian Two star is a pragmatic, divorced forty year-old anthropologist with an exasperating teenage son, afierce grandmother and a baby on the way. Her lover, Roger Williams, a scholar and poet, is her polar opposite. Their relationship is plagued by the clashes of two people who disagree on every point except their attraction to each other.

When Vivian uncovers Christopher Columbus's lost diary and a reference to "the greatest treasure of Europe," she and Roger are drawn into a journey to the Caribbean that threatens and finally changes their lives. The Crown of Columbus is a contemporary love story; a rollicking tale of adventure, a tender, funny examination of parenthood and a novel of history recovery and new beginnings.
