Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Barbados, 1854: Emily Dawson receives an unexpected inheritance: a sugar plantation in Barbados - a plantation her grandfather never told anyone he owned. Emily finds Peverills a burnt-out shell, reduced to ruins in 1816, when a rising of enslaved people sent the island up in flames. Rumours swirl around the derelict plantation; people whisper of ghosts. Why would her practical-minded grandfather leave her a property in ruins? The answer lies in the past - a tangled history of lies, greed, clandestine love, heartbreaking betrayal, and a bold bid for freedom.
