This book explores some of the connections between Topsham and the sugar plantations. Aware of the enormous suffering that made plantation businesses possible, the book looks at key families from the town who derived wealth from the trade and those that made Topsham their home on their retirement.

A fascinating study of the families and their connections to many plantations where the land still bears names with a Topsham connection.
