Here she meets Jean-Pierre, the grandson of her employer, Madame Colbert, and visits Paris where she discovers the desires of men. But Jo's destiny takes her to America where she experiences more than her dreams of becoming a music teacher.During prohibition, in the mysterious haunts of Greenwich Village, she falls deeply in love with Mike Pasinski, a free-spirit; and a son of Polish emigrants. However, loneliness, loss and hardship follow during the Wall Street crash. Will the beautiful Jo let go of her demons and learn to love again?
