In this joyous, modern fable, only those with goodness of heart can see the elusive vision. On the Caribbean island called the "Isle of Spice," there was a lake with a nutmeg grove nearby. On the lake, some said, live the Nutmeg Princess -- but she would only appear when the nutmeg was ready for picking, and the sweet smell of the spice filled the air. If you were lucky, you might see her, but to do so you had to rise at 4 a.m. and sit just so by the edge of the lake. Two children are determined to do just that, and the townspeople follow along. Only the two children are gifted with a vision of her and her wisdom "Go now, follow your dreams, and if you believe in yourselves, all things are possible." And then she was gone, never to reappear.

On the Caribbean island of Grenada, playmates Anglo and Petal risk drowning to catch a glimpse of a mysterious, beautiful young woman who appears above a mountain lake at the same time as the blossoming of the nutmeg trees.
