When Lucy arrives in Mauritius she is unprepared for the disquieting attractions of Don Lambodar,a young translator from Ceylon. Under the surface there is growing unease, it is 1825: Britain has wrested power from France and is shipping convict labour across the oceans. The age of slavery is coming to its messy end.
