Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Barbara Wood's latest novel follows a disinherited English baron and a young New York heiress who marry and move west to build an agricultural empire in Palm Springs in the 1920s, when it was just a budding town on the edge of the Mojave Desert. It's a saga about ambition on both large and small scales and the rapidly modernizing world as the harsh, sun-drenched landscape transforms from a Native American haven to the playground of Hollywood's rich and famous.
Land of the Afternoon Sun is also the story of a woman finding her own personality and strength in the West against a breathtaking desert landscape that changes constantly and shows its deadly side in poisonous snakes, flash floods, and sandstorms, with dramatic moments of forbidden romance, reversals, treachery, betrayal, and, ultimately, triumphs.

History of Justice & Romance Abide Together

Again my favorite author, Barbara Wood, tells a compelling story of the hard work and commitment it took to create a movement of Justice for not only the environment but the combined efforts of the people who lived on the land in the western part of the US in its early days and continues to ripple out for all today who benefit from our ancestors dedication.
