Description

Fiction. Lucy Langston's marriage is failing when her husband Darrell is suddenly offered a new job as CFO for an American insurance firm in Bermuda. With their twelve-year-old son Peyton, they leave their affluent Connecticut life to start anew in a paradise of pink beaches and quaint British decorum. All too soon, a darker reality emerges, and each of them becomes secretly entangled with Marcus Passjohn--a charismatic opposition leader known for his defense of the island's underclass--and Marcus's alienated son Zef, a budding anarchist. Darrell slips into an intrigue to destroy Passjohn's credibility. Peyton, bullied at school, takes refuge in a frightening delinquency with Zef. And Lucy, seeking to reclaim her son before it's too late, enters a compelling alliance with Marcus Passjohn, one that quickly escalates into a powerfully transforming love affair.
