Stevo Markovich, after the death of his wife in Gary, Indiana, has recurring dreams of his dead father. The dreams make him want to return to New Orleans, where he and his father had been fisherman when they came from Jugoslavia's Dalamatian area. Here he discovers unknown secrets about his family, all gone now, but his home remains.
Arriving at the entry to his New Orleans courtyards, Stevo noticed a lit candle in the round bowl on the neighbor's patio table. Glancing in that direction, he saw a woman at the the table. He politely tipped his hat in her direction and proceeded to his doorway.
"Is that you, Mr. Steve?" the woman called. " If you are Mr. Steve, please join me."
Meeting miss Kara changed Stevo Markovich's life as he never could have imagined.
