The second novel in The Shifting Sands series picks up the story as Lord Wolfe and Carlotta head for Seoul in the Kingdom of Korea. Travelling across the Pacific, they traverse the vast British North American colonies. They make a welcome return to Harcourt Hall after so many months away. As Carlotta begins to assert her independence, and receives a gift of alpacas from the former governor of the Argentine, Lord Woife takes decisions on how to invest a proportion of their fortune in the rising automobile industry. The machinery of foreign diplomacy, occurring behind the scenes, and behind the backs of the politicians, increasingly draws Lord Wolfe into Russian affairs. Do they really have to travel to Saint Petersburg? What of the lives they are making back home?
