Inhaltsangabe: "Gripping...Fine story-telling."
Pequot Landing, Connecticut, is not the place--nor is this the time--for love. Yet Aurora Talcott and Sinjin Grimes are struck with it as by a thunderbolt--only to be violently separated by their feuding elders and catapulted to opposite ends of the earth: she to aristocratic England, and he to the trading hongs of Macao and the pirate seas of China. And left behind at home, growing stronger from her own desperate strugle, is Georgiana, the hired girl whose secret story entwines the fates of them all....

From Publishers Weekly:
Murder, suicide, elopement, an Algonquian witch's prophecy, a shipwreck, insanity, sudden revelations of paternity, a duel--a welter of incident, large and small, crowds Tryon's ( The Other ) big, old-fashioned historical romance, the first installment in the Kingdom Come cycle. Its star-crossed lovers are Aurora Talcott, pert, confident and just out of convent school, and Sinjin Grimes, rakehell, writer of raunchy, pseudo-Byronic verse, adopted son of sanctimonious lecher Zion Grimes. The real heroine, however, is not airhead Aurora ("I love him--well . . . because he's the captain of a fine ship") but young Georgie Ross, daughter of a half-mad Scottish miller, who grows wise through her multiple tragedies. The Talcotts, gentlemen farmers, and the Grimeses, proud shipping magnates, carry on a vendetta that roils their circa 1828 Connecticut village. Unalloyed pleasure for fans of this genre, Tryon's literate 19th-century soap opera is steeped in the rhythms of Trollope and Scott. 125,000 first printing; BOMC alternate.
