—a Punishment Island for wayward wives. In New Victoria, sex outside of marriage is against the law. Sex Crimes Courts judge offenders and the punishments are severe, including public floggings and hard labor to punish the guilty. When Delila violates the law with a co-worker the initial corporal punishment is swift, however, the hard labor she is condemned to is far more than she expected when Degas, the Over-seer of an underground brothel, buys her from the State for the duration of her sentence.
