Historical Fiction: sensual, intended for 17-plus readers

"Drums" begins in 1825 Sydneytown when the heroine, Amelia Yorke, returns from her work as a teacher and can't find her mother. We soon know the reason for this and its impact on Amelia's decision to become the new wife of a recently-widowed missionary, appointed to Polynesia by the London Missionary Society.
Within months she's deep in the southern seas and beginning to consider the wisdom of her decision. She and a man named Guy Richmond are standing together on the deck and witness the slaughter of a man paddling desperately across a spectacular tropical lagoon. He is overtaken by pursuers. Soon aquamarine water is stained by blood.
And the lives of Amelia and Guy are changed forever.

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 daughters and sons, adventurers, seafarers, missionaries, traders, teachers, botanists, artists, beachcombers.
In "Who is he?" an artist is attracted by Polynesia's vibrant light but hadn't expected to bring a wife along with him.
"Unexpected Hero is about a man and a woman who have been acquainted forever but only really meet when he sails to her aid.
"Drums" is the story of a destitute teacher who witnesses the slaughter of a man she has never met yet agreed to marry, while a man thanks God for his wife's betrayal.
"The Mistake" will be published soon. It tells the story of a seafarer who blithely believes he is destined to live happily ever after with the vivacious daughter of a missionary - until she makes a mistake he is unable to forgive.

Meet the Author

Most of my stories are set on remote islands in Polynesia because I lived on one for many years. I know what it's like to swim in reef pools full of gaudy tropical fish and what it's like to live through hurricanes. More about me and the world of my characters can be seen on my website, gwendoline-ewins.com
