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 UK)
In the depths of the lush Jamaican forest stands a ruined house. Worlds away, ten-year-old Madeleine's untroubled Scottish childhood is cut short after a fateful encounter with the handsome Cameron Lawe. She seizes her chance to escape and returns to the decaying Jamaican plantation. But there, too, she must finally confront her past.
