The smell of spices, the splendour of palaces, the glitter of Arabian Nights
In 1888, aboard a steamer making for East Africa, three women make friends with each other: the unconventional shipowner's daughter Viktoria Wesermann, the young scientist Antonia Geisenfelder and the spoilt Juliane von Braun. Each one of them is hoping to find happiness on the fragrant and exotic island of spices called Zanzibar.
Before long, however, the three of them end up in an emotional turmoil of passionate, confusing and intoxicating feelings, painfully caught between an oriental ideal and the shadows cast by slavery, bloody riots and cholera…
“People and an island brought close – compelling and irresistible.”
