Conclusion of the trilogy, in which 21st-century researchers uncover the (fictional) story of Elizabeth Stuart, the Winter Queen, her African lover, and their unsuspecting descendants. The ending is somewhat unsatisfying, as Stevenson doesn't seem to know what to do after the genealogical research is concluded. But that's only a quibble. I highly recommend all of her books.
