London, 1913. Hazel Louise Mull-Dare has a good life, if a bit dull. Her adoring father grants her every wish, she attends a prestigious school for young ladies, and she receives no pressure to excel in anything whatsoever. But when an American friend convinces Hazel to take a stand for women’s suffrage, her rebellious stunt lands her in more trouble than she ever could have dreamed: Hazel is banished to her grandparent’s sugar plantation in the Caribbean. There she is forced to confront the dark secrets of her family—secrets of slavery—and a shame that lingers on.
