1825, Polynesia. Amelia Yorke is a destitute teacher with a petunia in a flower pot outside her dingy cottage in Sydneytown. Guy Richmond is a botanist seeking orchids in the rainforest and heir to vast lands in New South Wales.
They are from different worlds and should never have met, yet come together on the deck of a sailing ship overlooking a spectacular tropical lagoon.
As drums on the beach threaten, a man desperately paddles for freedom: he is overtaken and soon the aquamarine water of the lagoon is stained by blood.
The Southern Seas Series tells the stories of people who find themselves – for all sorts of reasons – on remote coral islands in the 1800’s. They include men and women, daughters and sons, adventurers, seafarers, missionaries, traders, teachers, botanists, artists, beachcombers.
