The Sun is My Undoing is set in 18th century Bristol during the time of the slave trade, which the Flood family is embroiled in. The Floods’ destinies lead them out from Bristol to shores of the Gold Coast, Cuba and Spain. It seems like nothing can bring down the fame of the successful Flood name, as the slave trade booms.
Nothing except, perhaps, our handsome hero, young Matthew Flood, who is hungry for adventure and romance. Setting out to find his destiny, he travels aboard an African slaving ship on a journey that covers half of the globe. He stops in ports in Africa, Barbados, Cuba, and Spain, meeting not one but two loves of his life on the way…
Will he bring dishonor on his family with his lust for life? Which woman will ultimately win his heart? And when all is said and done, will he return home to Bristol, or will his soul forever belong to the sea?
The Sun Is My Undoing is a spectacular story with a touching hero and strong female characters. It has drama, passion, and adventure – the call of the sea, the allure of foreign lands, and the age-old charm of the historical England.
