In this third offering from the author of Without Charity and A
Place in the Hills we follow the trials and tribulations of
Madeleine, the bastard offspring of a wealthy family. This being
Victorian times, illegitimacy is a dreadful stigma and young
Madeleine faces an uphill struggle to find peace and happiness. At
the tender age of ten she experiences the first tragic upheaval of
her life. Consequently she is uprooted from her secure Scottish
home and taken to London with her baby sister, Sophie, to be raised
by a strait-laced, religious aunt. Ten years later Madeleine finds
herself in dire straits again and grasps at a chance to move to a
sugar plantation in Jamaica, which just happens to be her father's
family estate. Yes, unbelievable coincidences abound, but don't let
that put you off. This is not a run of the mill bodice-ripper.
Michelle Paver is a talented story-teller, and her words flow off
the page and absorb the reader. She creates a web of passion and
mystery with a sense of historical atmosphere that envelops the
reader and allows one to suspend disbelief almost completely. This
is the first book of the Daughters of Eden trilogy, and it will be
interesting to see where Paver takes her characters next. (Kirkus
