She has inherited her mothersMoreSuccessful Polperris artist Rose Yi Johnson is elected to the District Council despite her mother being from Northern China.

Her illegitimate daughter, Emily, is a Fine Arts graduate working for a London gallery. She has inherited her mothers oriental good looks and deep intellect.Councillor Johnson is incensed when she learns that The Church is applying for planning permission to build a car-park and ice-cream kiosk on an ancient and legally-protected meadow, known as The Glebe Field. The application is supported by influential landowner and womaniser Hugh Olver-Blythe, who has much bigger plans in mind.Rose Johnsons passionate concern for the environment, aided by an astounding stroke of family fortune, brings a personable young barrister and his famous father into the picture.

This has dramatic repercussions for The Glebe, for Rose and her daughter.George Macphersons intriguing and frank novel, (a sequel to one of his previous books The Floating Island – a tale of Africa), recognises that human behaviour has changed little, over the centuries. Set within the context of a modern love story, it suggests that while our acquisitive and greedy instinct drives us to plunder and wreck this planet – and even attack Mother Nature herself, bringing mass self-destruction, money in itself need not be evil.

Great riches can bring many good things and much happiness.
