Summary:
"Barely surviving an expedition to the Amazon, working class biologist William Adamson returns home, where he is forced to accept the charity of an affluent, upper-class family. Falling deeply in love with his benefactor's captivating daughter, he sees his fondest wish come true when she agrees to become his wife. Unwittingly attracting the affections of a bright household servant, William tries to continue his scientific studies. But all of William's logic and learning can't prepare him for the discovery he is about to make about his new relations. A discovery that will peel back the facade of wealth and privilege to reveal a breeding ground of erotic decadence and illicit passion beyond any husband's darkest fears."--Container.
