by Marguerite Steen

“The history of the Flood family, so well-known to readers of The Sun is My Undoing, is continued in Marguerite Steen’s new novel Twilight on the Floods.  The twilight falls on the descendants of Hercules and Matthew Flood, who made the family fortune as slave traders, carefully concealing their live cargo in ingeniously constructed vessels.  At the turn of the century the respected British firm is run by another generation of Floods, well-established citizens who have conveniently forgotten the ignominious origin of the family fortune.”
