It is ten years since Tom Strong left Bristol, and the Strong family, a powerful dynasty whose wealth was founded on growing sugar and keeping slaves, want him back. New ways must be found to maintain the Strong wealth, and Horatia Strong is determined that Tom Strong be part of it. But old enemies plot his downfall and Tom begins to wish he'd stayed away. Sugar is not quite as lucrative as it once was. The Strongs, spearheaded by Horatia, are keen to diversify. A lot of money can be made from property and land, and Horatia decides to do just that. She is also ruthless with regard to Tom and will do anything to win him for herself. Now married with children, Blanche is stirred by Tom's return - she must choose between her head and her heart, between duty and passion. When Tom discovers the depth of Horatia's deceit in her efforts to marry him, he plans to leave - until a secret from the past threatens to change his mind...
