Jane Huxley has been recognised by Dame Beryl Bainbridge as "a clever and ingenious novelist", by Simon Cowell as a "compelling writer" and her work compared to F. Scott Fitzgerald's (Daily Express, London).
Huxley's remarkable new novel unfolds against the backdrop of an elegant suburb of Lima, Peru, as well as the lush cotton fields of Cochabamba and tells the story of a tumultuous love affair between a man and woman whose lives become entangled in an enthralling, yet dangerously complicated way.
In the spring of 2014, an English freelance journalist, Stefan Larsen, is commissioned to write an article about San Marcos University. While engaged in this assignment he meets Coral, the wife of an aristocrat and wealthy cotton magnate, an encounter that will become a personal odyssey and change a hitherto harmonious existence.
A deeply moving tale of love, desire, rape, loyalty and betrayal.
