Summary (From the publisher):

Bristol 1787 is booming, a city where power beckons those who dare to take risks. Josiah Cole, a small dockside trader, is prepared to gamble everything to join the big players of the city. But he needs capital and a well connected wife.

Marrige to Frances Scott is a mutually convient solution. Trading her social contacts for Josiah's protection, Frances finds her life and fortune dependent upon the respectable trade of sugar, rum and slaves.

Into her new world comes Mehuru, once a priest in the ancient African kingdom of Yoruba. From opposite ends of the earth, despite the enmity of slavery, Mehuru and Frances confront each other and their need for love and liberty.
