?There he is! Get him! Kill the bastard!? Cross the King family, one of the most powerful in all of Barbados, and you?re in trouble ? indeed if you?ve crossed them like the young redneck Jason who?s deflowered Robby King?s sixteen-year-old daughter Elizabeth, you need to run for your life. And run he does, leaving the girl who loves him at the mercy of a an outraged family that will stop at nothing to avoid the public disgrace that?s inevitable in the 1930s if the truth gets out. Elizabeth faces a brutal choice: have her child snatched away the moment it is born or be exiled in penury forever ? from the family and its estate with its palatial mansion and sugar cane plantation. Heartbroken, she chooses the former and is packed off to the alien world of pre-war London, where her glamorous Aunt Sandra takes her under her far from angelic wing. But scandal is hot on her heels as layer upon layer of secret shame is peeled away over the following decades, exposing raw resentment, persecution and even incest. Lurching wildly from the balmy heat of Barbados to the seamy side of early twentieth century London behind closed doors, this epic tale is a gripping romantic thriller spiced with intrigue, sex and scandal.
