The Austens and their two young sons have moved to Rio de Janeiro for two years. A committed environmentalist, Todd Austen finds himself more often leading groups of celebrities on tours of the Amazon than fighting for its preservation. A visual artist, Holly Austen is lost in her new home. Like Todd, she has always meant to be a good person. But as one of the celebrities tempts her into an affair, she’s in danger of losing track of what that means.
Targeted Age Group:: Adults
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
While living in Brazil for three years, I found myself surrounded by adventurers–and temptations. People can go there to lose themselves in an emotional jungle. In creating Todd and Holly Austen, I thought of temptations and frustrations that can cause good people to turn bad–and create havoc for their children.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
As a writer, I know many artists like Holly Austen: someone who wants to push herself, and sometimes goes too far. Having been in Brazil while married to a foreign correspondent, I also met environmentalists like Todd Austen who want to save the world. But maybe first they should have tried to save themselves, and their families.
