It is 1895. Robert Wallis, would-be poet, bohemian and impoverished dandy, accepts a commission from coffee merchant Samuel Pinker to categorise the different tastes of coffee - and encounters Pinker's free-thinking daughters, Philomenia, Ada and Emily. As romance blossoms with Emily, Robert realises that the muse and marriage may not be incompatible after all.

Sent to Abyssinia to make his fortune in the coffee trade, he becomes obsessed with slave girl, Fikre. He decides to use the money he has saved to buy her from her owner - a decision that will change not only his own life, but the lives of the three Pinker sisters. Download and start listening now!

    " I really enjoyed this book and I think anyone who is interested in the turn of the century and the dawning of the industrial age in England will enjoy it. As well as those who love coffee or are just hedonists. Mmmm....I'm thinking of a good Kenyan now. Bring on the coffee! "

    " If you are a fan of vocabulary, and thrill to see an underused word put to good use, this is a marvelous book. It is also filled with foreshadowing if you are keen enough to think ahead. I wasn't. "

    " I am having a hard time finding the words to put my thoughts into a review on this novel. The best word to describe my feelings is DISAPPOINTED. And to me, for a nearly 600 page book, that's disturbing. I was so looking forward to this book since I loved Capella's The Wedding Officer so much. The characters, especially the main one, were not likable in the least bit. Robert had so many non-endearing flaws & sometimes was downright offensive. If I was asked to comment on one thing I liked? The Frog, a VERY small character who took up maybe a complete 3 pages... "
