Deep Indigo: Lady Dorothy D'Oyly Carte and St. Yves de Verteuil in Tobago 1933-1978 (Paperback)
Daughter of an English lord, and married to the man who owned The Savoy, Lady Dorothy D'Oyly Carte enjoyed all of the privileges that wealth and position could offer in pre-war England. But then, in the 1930s, she visited Trinidad and Tobago and fell in love, both with the beauty and charm of the islands, and with the author's great uncle, St. Yves de Verteuil. She would spend the rest of her long life in Tobago, deeply involved in the community in which she lived.
In Deep Indigo, author Elizabeth Cadiz Topp draws on family lore, historical research, and a rich imagination to breathe life into a story she first heard as a child. Infused with joy, humour and heartbreak, it tells the story of a courageous, generous and eccentric woman who defied the society she grew up in and found her own way.
