Blackwell North Amer
Anthony Apreece covets the land of his young neighbour, Edward Horne. Horne covets Daisy, Anthony's wife. On such simple foundations, James Fleming builds a novel at once a wholly convincing representation of an eighteenth-century world and an utterly modern dissection of two of mankind's most powerful passions: greed and love.
