Publisher's Summary

Independent-minded Sibylla Spencer feels trapped in 19th-century London, where her strong will and progressive views have rendered her unmarriageable. Still single at 23, she is treated like a child and feels stifled in her controlling father's house.

When Benjamin Hopkins, an ambitious employee of her father's trading company, shows an interest in her, she realizes marriage is her only chance to escape. As Benjamin's rising career whisks them both away to exotic Morocco, Sibylla is at last a citizen of the world, reveling in her newfound freedom by striking her first business deals, befriending locals - and falling in love for the first time with a charismatic and handsome Frenchman.

But Benjamin's lust for money and influence draws him into dark dealings, pulling him ever further from Sibylla and their two young sons. When he's arrested on horrible charges, the fate of Sibylla's family rests on her shoulders, as she must decide whether she'll leave him to his fate or help him fight for his life.

    "Worst audio to date"

    I enjoyed the story for its descriptive writing, which I thought splendid and even the story a little weak was all linked together, but the person reading it was awful, the accents were laughable. It spoilt it for me I’m afraid.

    Story
    "Enjoyed it."

    I was only disappointed with the ending. I understand they tried to keep to facts but I could imagine a much more satisfying end to dear Old Benjamin. I would have liked an epilogue to round out Sabilla's life. Overall well done! Narration was excellent.

    "It was ok not bad"

    It started slow but got better as the story progressed. I do not have much to say about it.

    "Great read !"

    I enjoyed this well written book, I couldn't put it down. It moved at a nice pace but also allowed you to get to know the characters and story.
