"Solomon Grimaud is a Jewish millionaire living in late nineteenth-century Alexandria, Egypt. His white villa overlooks the Mediterranean and from it he can observe and admire the passage of his fleet of cotton ships. Yet he has paid a high price for success. In adopting the ideals of self-sufficiency and progress he has sacrificed the tender side of his personality. Only when faced with personal and financial disaster does he find the courage to reconstitute his personality in to a wiser sadder one. But Girmaud's discarded beliefs have not relaxed their hold on his son, who is prepared to sacrifice all scruples - perhaps even his fathers life - to ambitions which he has been taught are morally inviolable."
