Inspired by The Tempest, Indigo traces the scars of colonialism across continents, family blood-lines and three centuries. Rich, sensual and magical in its use of myths and fairytales Indigo explores the intertwined histories of the Everard family and the imaginary Caribbean island where Ariel, Caliban, and his mother, the healer and dyer of indigo, Sycorax once lived.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A complex, glittering book * The Times *
An extraordinary imaginative achievement * Times Literary Supplement *
Indigo explores the nature of power, the human cost of Empire and the theme of dislocation... Vivid, gripping, intelligent * Independent on Sunday *
Her prose has never been so lyrical, as she yokes Shakespearean references, colonial history and her own sensual experience of the Caribbean with a powerful feminine myth-making * Independent *
