Product description

Prim and proper, sweet and dull: that’s how life has always been for Hazel Mull-Dare. With money pouring in from the family’s Caribbean sugar plantation, a father who spoils her rotten, and no pressure to excel in anything whatsoever, her future is looking as perfectly dull as one of her hats. But on the day of the Epsom Derby in 1913, everything changes. A woman in a dark coat steps out in front of the King’s horse, dying days later from her injuries. Who was she – and why did she do it? Hazel is determined to find out. But it leads her to banishment. To secrets that have festered, and a buried shame that lingers on. To madness and misunderstanding in the place where sugar cane grows, and secrets smoulder under the sun…
