“Love is a matter of geography and circumstance. James Lachlan is the son of an Earl, a gentleman of means and an engineering offi cer in the British army. Circumstance required him to absent himself from England for three years. Nicola is the daughter of a USA cattle rancher and an educated eastern lady. Nicola’s father was a man deemed unfi t to marry Nicola’s mother by her Boston family. The Waltham family was ostracized on Nicola’s parent’s marriage. Nicola had both her parents killed by an Indian raiding party, was abused by unfeeling outlaws and had her ranch and stock stolen from her while she recovered from the abuse. Because of the abuse she was also ostracized by the townspeople where she was born. Without funds, family and friends Nicola was forced to earn a living as a dance hall girl. This then is the love story of James and Nicola how they met and overcame their many trials and tribulations to fall in love and despite all opposition to fi nally marry. They sought and were fi nally accepted back into the bosoms of their families. James however never knew what his strong willed red headed wife would do next and thought “My life may not always be quiet and peaceful but it will always be interesting”.

In the weeks and months after the end of the Spanish-American War, Americans celebrated their nation's triumph by eating sugar. Each of the nation's new imperial possessions, from Puerto Rico to the Philippines, had the potential for vastly expanding sugar production. As victory parties and commemorations prominently featured candy and other sweets, Americans saw sugar as the reward for their global ambitions. April Merleaux demonstrates that trade policies and consumer cultures are as crucial to understanding U.S. empire as military or diplomatic interventions. As the nation's sweet tooth grew, people debated tariffs, immigration, and empire, all of which hastened the nation's rise as an international power. These dynamics played out in the bureaucracies of Washington, D.C., in the pages of local newspapers, and at local candy counters. Merleaux argues that ideas about race and civilization shaped sugar markets since government policies and business practices hinged on the racial characteristics of the people who worked the land and consumed its products. Connecting the history of sugar to its producers, consumers, and policy makers, Merleaux shows that the modern American sugar habit took shape in the shadow of a growing empire.
