About the Author

Anya Seton was born in New York City and grew up on her father's large estate in Cos Cob and Greenwich, Connecticut, where visiting Indians taught her Indian dancing and woodcraft. One Sioux chief called her Anutika, which means 'cloud grey eyes', a name which the family shortened to Anya. She was educated by governesses, and then travelled abroad, first to England, then to France where she hoped to become a doctor. She studied for a while at the Hotel Dieu hospital in Paris before marrying at eighteen and having three children. She began writing in 1938 with a short story sold to a newspaper syndicate and the first of her novels was published in 1941. She died in 1990.

Format: Paperback
This is the story of Santa Fe (Fey) Cameron, named after the town she was born in, Santa Fe New Mexico. Her high born spanish mother died in childbirth, and her father (the disinherited younger son of a highland laird) died when she was a young girl, leaving her to be raised by a lower class mexican family. When Fey turns 17 she meets Terry Dillon, a handsome, charming but ever so unscrupulous medicine man who is headed back east to make his fortune in New York after having run afoul of something in San Francisco. At this same time, a distant cousin of Fey's travels to Santa Fe in search of her on behalf of her grandfather, who is now sorry for the estrangement between himself and his (now dead) son, and wants them brought home to Scotland. Ewen just misses Fey, and his trail turns cold.

Once they reach New York, Terry leaves a pregnant Fey to her own resources as he leaves for brighter pastures. Fey takes work where she can, and sets her sights on the very wealthy and powerful Simeon Tower. Fey's cousin Ewen just misses her once again prior to her marriage to Simeon. The story slows down a bit after this point, as the author describes the opulent lifestyles of the very rich in 1870's New York as Simeon and Fey try to crack the upper circle of New York society.

The story picks up again as a surprise return from the past threatens Fey and Simeon, and Fey finally comes to realize that she has only herself to blame for the choices she made in life and that she is not a victim of circumstance, and that she will have to atone for those bad choices.

All in all a pleasant read, but certainly not up to the high standards Seton set with Katherine, Devil Water and the Winthrop Woman.

This was a story I read many moons ago, and it was as fresh today as it was then, and to see Santa Fe Cameron come to "life" was heaven, in a word. And with the advent of the Kindle I can choose books I read years ago and get them again.. I fully recommend this by Anya Seton.. Learn about the Turquoise and how it runs through Santa Fe`s life and loves and meet all the fascinating characters who make her the person, she is and who she eventually becomes.. Read on...

Format: Paperback
I am a HUUGGGEEE fan of Anya Seton's, I've read Dragonwyck, Avalon and Katherine, but yet none have surpassed Katherine, the incentive to go on this Anya Seton journey. I am not averse to books where nothing really happens but The Turquiose was oftentimes filled with just blather! It was like 'get on with it.' I didn't much like the characters, they weren't very indepth and loveable, as Katherine and all her costars. But please read it.
