I am so grateful to have been invited to be on the tour for this book.

It’s a bit of a departure from what I’ve been reading over the last little while which is why I jumped at the opportunity.

The story begins in Barbados in 1854, through the eyes of Emily Dawson, a poor vicar’s daughter. Her status falls flat compared to her much wealthier cousins, causing a bit of family friction.

Per her status and gender, no one expects the family business to fall to Emily, rather to her rather humbling and awkward cousin Adam. Things never go according to plan, in fact or fiction, though and the resulting effects set the scene for the rest of the book.

Soon, Emily is swept up in old family secrets, a rather reluctant renovation, political upheaval, and more than her desired amount of drama.

This book is both fast paced and gorgeously slow in rolling parts. Again, it is more of a portrait, a landscape, than my usual rollicking adventures, but in my personal moment of chaos, this beauty was exactly what I needed to sink my soul into.
