Set in Mauritius in 1925, a time of social tension, the island paradise forms the stunning backdrop for a true coming-of-age love story. Orphaned, 17-year-old Lucy Gladwell has been sent from England to live under the guardianship of her uncle George Huyton. Initially seduced by the sumptuous beauty of her surroundings and the charm of her new family, Lucy sees George as a benign, humorous, and loving man who has her best interests at heart. But beneath this veneer of civilisation, lies a dark, violent force, that wants to entrap, rule, and use her. When Lucy meets Krishna, a passionate young man working as a labourer on a nearby plantation with dreams of one day owning his own land, they both fall deeply and dangerously in love. She finds herself at odds with her uncle, the ways of his world and his plans of an arranged marriage for her. No matter how fleeting Lucy and Krishna’s time together may be, the passion and all-consuming nature of true love is something neither can deny.
