    The year is 1859 and Hero Hollis, beautiful and headstrong niece of the American consul, arrives in Zanzibar. It is an earthly paradise; it is also the last outpost of the Slave Trade. A passionate opponent of slavery, Hero is swept into a turmoil of royal intrigue, abduction, piracy, smuggling, and a virulent cholera epidemic. There in Zanzibar, the most cruelly beautiful island of the Southern Seas, she must choose her love and unravel her destiny.

    "Very Interesting Read!"
    Overall

    Very interesting story with just enough romance (well, perhaps I could have used a little more!)This author does a great job with bringing in historical facts and creating a fictional story around them. I have a whole new outlook on the pestilence and plagues that swept through Africa in the late 1800's. Truly I had a hard time sleeping a couple of nights just thinking about the Cholera! "Hero" the heroine really grows on you. She was so annoying for the first half of the book. But the story is about self awareness and change, and moral character...and Hero turns out to be quite an extraordinary woman in the end.
