Intrigue. Passion. Chocolate. Critically acclaimed historical epic by Edinburgh writer, Sara Sheridan. This novel was also published in Edinburgh and is based on the real-life adventures of Maria Graham, a female Georgian travel writer whose extraordinary life is largely uncelebrated. Set in Brazil, Chile and London in 1823.
"A story as rich and velvety as the chocolate at its heart... A joy to read."MARY CHAMBERLAIN (author of The Dressmaker of Dachau)
"This is a novel to take one seamlessly from exotic places to shadowy underworlds and polite drawing rooms, in order to revel in an emotionally charged and socially challenged Victorian romance, coupled with the cliff-hanging jeopardy of Brazilian and London low-life... Five stars with extra phosphorescence!"JOANNA HICKSON (author of The Tudor Bride)
