   schema:description "The story of Hartley Fudges, whose personal destiny unfolds against the backdrop of 19th-century British culture, a time when English society was based upon the strictest subordination and stratification of the classes. Like many second sons, Hartley decides to migrate to Jamaica at the age of twenty-three.

But for all its fabulous wealth, Jamaica was a difficult and inhospitable place for an immigrant. With Hartley's point of view as its primary focus, the narrative transports readers to exotic lands, simultaneously exploring the brutality of England's slavery-based colonization."@en ;
