Suzana Chesterfield, recently rescued from a gang of slave-traders by Simon Ellice, has come sailing with him to try to work out what to do with her life.
They drop anchor in a perfect bay of pink granite rocks, glittering sand and azure water on the island of Cavello and are welcomed into to the warm southern hospitality of Andria Acquaviv and his family. Susie's heart is touched by Lesia, the little girl who plays with her dog in the sand and Lucia, her unhappy, widowed mother, who without a husband or a son, is reduced to serving the family.
She wants to help them break free from family bonds and find independence. Can she? Dare she interfere? And if she does, will Simon Ellice back her? Meanwhile, no one else sees what Si sees - death is coming as swiftly and surely as the sun nears the sea.
