“Poppy Markham practically grew up at the family restaurant in Austin, Texas, and, until recently, worked as a sous chef under her surly stepsister Ursula. Poppy’s not sure if her dad will ever forgive her for leaving the family business to become a public health inspector–the most reviled figure in the restaurant industry–but when he asks her back into the kitchen to help out during the restaurant’s grand re-opening, she can’t refuse. Chaos ensues when the guest of honor, Michelin-rated chef Évariste Bontecou, is found stabbed to death with Ursula’s knife. Sacrebleu!”
How do you face your future if your past was a lie?
1780, a time of upheaval: the American colonies almost lost, stirrings of industrial revolution, challenges to social norms. In a hamlet in Devon, Eve Martin watches helplessly as a fire destroys nearby Knowle Manor, the home of the Crosse family. The family decamps to their London house on Henrietta Street near Covent Garden, and Eve is invited to stay. From there she encounters John Stuart, a freed slave, now living and working in London. As secrets are gradually revealed, Eve and the Crosse family struggle with past burdens and future decisions.
Inspired by the lives of historical figures John Stuart, an anti-slavery campaigner, and Richard Crosse, a miniature portrait painter, the novel explores questions of identity and self-fulfilment, the ties of love and family, and the repercussions of slavery.
