The Foxes of Harrow

Forfatter:
The story begins with the adventures of the illegitimate Irish gambler, Stephen Fox. He's worked his way around Europe and America and has now settled near New Orleans. He schemes and gambles until he establishes himself as a wealthy planter, building the great hall of Harrow. But money doesn't buy happiness. He marries local beauty Odalie, but she turns out to be frigid in bed. After years of going without he finally takes on a quadroon mistress, Desiree, whose voice is like a soft, golden gong. Eventually Odalie learns about Desiree and this causes even more conflict in the marriage. Both women turn up the heat in the competition over this man until there's an eventual tragic end. The next part of the book takes up with Stephen's son, Etienne. This story brings to life a bygone era of plantation life in the deep south
