John Oakes has written the biography of his grandmother, Lucy Horn - a tale of social mores, of passion and of a woman whose strong determined character guided her - or sometimes thrust her headlong - through life.
Lucy Bearice Horn was a child of the last days of Edwardian opulence and grew up in the shadow of Far North Queensland society's prejudice against her camouflaged Chinese ancestry.
The narrative is interspersed with observations about the plants Lucy admired in her gardens. (back cover)
