A young, up-and-coming Swedish officer is suddenly and traumatically forced into the role of victim, as his newly wedded bride is defiled and murdered by pirates. In an exotic 18th century colonial setting, this novel explores the psychology of trauma, dissociation and redemption. Set against a political backdrop of the era, with revolution and romantic individualism versus etiquette and conformity.
