Description:
London, 1905: The city is alight with change, and the Stephen siblings - Vanessa, Virginia, Thoby, and Adrian - bring together a sparkling coterie of artists and intellectuals who will come to be known as the Bloomsbury Group. At the center of this charmed circle are the devoted, gifted sisters: Vanessa, the painter, and Virginia, the writer. But the landscape shifts when Vanessa unexpectedly falls in love and the eerily possessive yet brilliant Virginia careens toward self-destruction and madness. As tragedy and betrayal threaten to destroy the family, Vanessa must decide if it is finally time to protect her own happiness above all else.

Description:
In the early 1800's, a poor Brazilian, Francisco Manoel de Silva, sailed to the African kingdom of Dahomey, determined to make his fortune in the slave trade. Armed with nothing but an iron will, he became a man of substance in Ouidah, and friend to the mad, mercurial king. It was a relationship fraught with danger, and da Silva never made the triumphant return to Brazil of which he had dreamed. He did, however, found a remarkable dynasty; an enormous brood of mulatto children, all called da Silva, that ensured that his name was honoured by a highly miscellaneous clan over a centry later, and outpost of Brazil in Africa.
